The History of Amazon Kindle
Amazon Kindle was an innovative hardware developed by Amazon subsidiary Lab126. The Kindle began as a single device that was closely followed by the larger screen Kindle DX in 2009.
The name was derived from the meaning to light a fire, was seen as apt metaphor for igniting the fire to encourage reading and intellectual stimulation through the power of e-books and publications.
The very first generation of the Kindle was only launched in the US and featured a 6-inch, 4 level greyscale display and 250MB of internal storage, along with a speaker and headphone jack for listening to audio files. Whilst the internal storage could hold up to 200 non-illustrated books, it was the first and only Kindle that had the capacity for expandable storage via an SD card slot.
The Kindle 2 launched in the US in July 2009 and internationally in October of the same year. It was slimmer, with a bigger storage capacity of 2GB, which could hold up to
1,500 non-illustrated books, and a text-to-speech option to read text out loud. As part of the launch, Stephen King made his latest novella UR, available exclusively through the Kindle Store.
Since these early days there has been much development in Kindle devices, which now consist of various devices including Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle Fire, Kindle Touch and LCD versions available on Android based phones and tablets, as well as additional software to be compatible with different software applications.
