What is the Kindle?

Posted on August 8, 2011

The Kindle is Amazon’s branded e-book reader. It uses an e-ink technology so has a passive display that is very similar in nature to paper rather than the active screens of most laptops / electronics devices. This means that you can read it in direct sunlight just like a book, but at night you need a light otherwise the screen is just dark.

Read more about the Kindle and look at pictures of the various devices on Amazon’s site here. Watch the video, read the marketing blurb.

Trying to decide which Kindle is best for you? Read my thoughts here.
