    The Kindle Paperwhite Is A Reader’s Dream

    The e-reader arms race moves at a glacial pace. Barnes & Noble does one thing, Amazon follows. Amazon adds a feature and, slowly but surely, B&N adds the same thing. While the Kindle itself has been updated five times since 2008, it seems like it’s been around for decades and has only just now gotten much, much better. The latest e-ink Kindle, the Paperwhite, is a beautiful… Read More

    The Kindle Fire HD Is Amazon’s Lean, Mean, Content-Selling Machine

    The Kindle Fire is Amazon’s digital strategy incarnate. When it launched a year ago, the Fire seemed almost rushed. It looked like RIM’s failed Playbook tablet and it worked, at best, like the low cost tablet it was. But, in the end, it was the best device ever made to access Amazon’s own content. It delivered a seamless read experience, a compelling video collection, and… Read More

    Amazon in its ongoing press conference has hinted at some improvements to the Kindle Fire software.

Over the past few days, developers have spotted that the Kindle Fire OS is now based on Android 4.0 instead of 2.2. It remains to be confirmed but the important… Read More
