Why was the Kindle invented?
The Kindle was purposely invented to help people, so they did not have to turn pages, or hold a big, heavy book in their hands.

A Kindle is a thin electronic device used to download e-books and some magazines wirelessly and read them. It is manufactured and sold by Amazon.com. Since its first launch a couple of years ago, two more versions of the Kindle e-reader have been released ( Kindle 2 and Kindle DX ), while the ori…ginal version cannot be bought as new anymore. Just recently, 3g wireless coverage for the Kindle 2 model has been made available worldwide in over 100 countries. Kindle is manufactured by Amazon Digital Services, an Amazon company. (MORE)
The first Kindle was released in the United States on November 19, 2007 by Jeff Bezos .
You can buy the Kindle from Amazon from almost anywhere in the world. In the US, it seems you can also find it in Target stores, and at Best Buy.
Although no website lists the date the Amazon Kindle was invented (Amazon wants to keep this date a complete secret), it's release date is available. It was first sold was on November 19, 2007.
Well, Amazon doesn't really like people copying books for other kindles. But, you can connect the accounts and can share books. Also, if you want to transfer the books from the kindle 1 to kindle 2, you should just use the same amazon account to transfer the books. Copying the book from the drive in…to the other kindle works too. Another option available in most cases is to temporarily loan the Kindle eBook from one Kindle to another Kindle. See related links for how. (MORE)
You could send an email message on a kindle but I am not sure about text messaging on it. It sounds like a good idea especially if you just read something interesting and would like to share it with somebody.
No, right now Kindle doesn't display color. It does have 16 shades of gray, so you're able to see photos and other images. But the new Kindle Fire is in color. You can pre-order it on amazon.com for $199. But it doesn't have built-in 3G like the kindle 3.
Yes, the kindle has access to AT&T's international 3g and edge And you can access by Wifi either.
You can buy e-books in the kindle store from the kindle, and they will download directly onto your e-reader. Then you select the book from your main menu, and start reading!
well... because you get to read million of books on one small thin compact source, which normally you will have to buy a million thick heavy books costing a lot whereas kindle books are extremly cheap.
Yes, you can get on the internet on the Kindle, if you go to the Home, then the Main Menu (Drop Down Menu), and select experimental you will have the option to browse the internet.
Well kindle means "to ignite" so I personally belive that the name for the device is symbolism for kindling the mind with knowledge.
You should get an iPad, it has iBooks and a kindle app on it so it defeats the kindle fire's purpose. Also, the Apple iPad has a much nicer interface and design.
Not only can you read books but you can also go on the internet and they are working on being able to play your MP3 to listen to music or podcasts while you read. It is great reading device!
It depends which model you want... Kindle - Â£89 Kindle Touch - Â£109 Kindle Touch 3G - Â£169 Kindle Keyboard 3G - Â£149.00
I think the man and woman voices on the Kindle are computer voices.Not real people. If you are refering to the oman in the ad for theKindle Fire HDX demonstrating the Mayday button, her name is AmyPaffrath but when you actually use the Mayday button you will get atech that is availabe who will appea…r on the screen who you cantalk to and get the help you need, when I got mine I accidentallytouched Chinese in the language selection and had to call for helpto change it to English, I got a guy who was able to fix it for me,it is a cool tool.

The Kindle Reader can be a relatively economical e-reader this is certainly the epitome of e-readers to check out. The Kindle has all the goodness make fish an digital camera has while still retaining a lot of the main advantages of a genuine book. We have an e-ink screen that provides the look an…d feel associated with an actual book. Some might question its replacement for haven't any back light but it lets you do have inside the latest models a 2 month life of the battery for this reason. The Ipad is also small and light-weight, so that it is a really portable device. Current a great deal of books you are able to import about it from Amazon, it really is a greater portion of a library than simply the sunday paper replacement. The Kindle Reader is an excellent tool if you're into books but believe it is a chore to lug one around constantly. The latest generation has a six inch touchscreen display and in addition weighs below six ounces. When it comes to books, some paperbacks weigh more than this and they are even larger. The Kindle's size is meant to be sufficiently little for some pockets. Which means in several situations in which you would normally hope you had the sunday paper with you, the Kindle could be taken out coming from a bag or breast pocket and you will no longer must sit around bored. The Kindle is also very tactile. Its new processor can switch pages faster, so that it is nearer to your reading of a page. The screen of the Kindle is made from e-ink, ab muscles clear as well as saving substitute for the LCD screens popular in tablets today. What's more, it comes with an anti-glare finish, so reading near a light will not bring about glare and reflections are lessened. This screen is also well suited for all zoom ranges of a document as this doesn't show artifacts in letters just as much as most tablets and screens do. Overall, these make the Kindle a much more book-like device. The Kindle is also great as possible employed to view documents like text files, word files, and in many cases PDFs. As well as the annotation and note options enable you to definitely edit articles on the go. Wireless access to these documents can also be found through WiFi. E-books may also be purchased directly through Amazon online, and you will download whole books in a minute or less. The Kindle comes with some features which might be missing. Because of the low power consumption e-ink display, the Kindle can only render pages in greyscale, so reading magazines and colored books may not be preferrable. Also, this iteration of the kindle doesn't have an actual physical keyboard, opting instead to get a touchscreen keyboard. If you are set for some color, the Kindle Fire can be a tablet that costs double the but has a multicolor LCD and may play videos and music. Although it will not make the top spots inside the pc tablet category, the final generation Kindle basically prefects the very idea of e-readers. Having its superb life of the battery, enough storage, useability, and portability, Amazon's Kindle is the foremost e-reader for just close to $100 (MORE)
As with most other things Jeff Bezos does, the Kindle was probably invented because Bezos saw an unfilled niche in the market and had an idea about a way it could be filled. Historically, Bezos has been good at that, going all the way back to when he realized an Internet bookstore didn't have to wor…ry about shelf space restrictions and created Amazon to begin with. At the time he was coming up with the idea, Bezos said that books were "the last bastion of analog." Nobody had yet been successful with an e-book device, though many companies (most notably electronics giant Sony) had tried. But on the other hand, most of those companies had approached it from the perspective of an electronics manufacturer. None had yet come from the position of a bookstore. Jeff Bezos saw an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a market nobody yet wanted. No one had yet tried putting the power of a major corporation whose sole business was books behind an e-book device. But Amazon had the access to books (and publishers) that came from its position as one of the largest e-book retailers in the world. And it had the financial power to take a hit on its profits at first to build a gigantic market in the end. This gave Amazon a huge first-mover advantage. Previous e-book stores had been handicapped by a lack of negotiating power. E-bookstores such as eReader ( nee Peanut Press and Palm Digital Media) or Fictionwise didn't have much bargaining power with publishers, who by and large seemed to see e-books as unimportant. (Not surprising given that they didn't even make up 1% of the overall fiction mass market at the time.) E-book prices commonly stayed at hardcover levels even long after the book had gone to paperback, because publishers couldn't be bothered to keep the prices updated. Amazon, on the other hand, had the bargaining power to get publishers to play ball. (Though even then, the publishers were in for a nasty shock. Bezos didn't happen to tell them he was planning to sell many bestselling titles as $9.99 loss leaders, losing money on every e-book in order to sell more Kindles. This would later lead to the establishment of publisher-controlled agency pricing, and a Department of Justice anti-trust lawsuit against the publishers, but that's another story.) Until the Kindle, the e-book market had been in stagnation for over ten years. Bezos's Kindle created a feedback loop that kicked it into overdrive almost overnight. The more people bought Kindles, the more e-books became available for them. And the more e-books became available, the more people bought Kindles. And the more e-books and Kindles were sold, the more e-reader prices fell. And suddenly practically everyone is reading e-books. So in the end, that is why the Kindle was invented: because Amazon could use it to establish dominance in a market nobody even knew existed yet. Who says evil geniuses only exist in the movies?

Yes,You can type on a kindle and kindle 3G. Its touch-screen and has a keyboard. Its like a IPad but on a IPad you can play games but on a kindle you can only read.
Kindling is a particular class or category of wood, designated to start fires. In order for wood to be kindling, it must be chopped or split into small, thin pieces that are easy to ignite. The most effective type of kindling is fatwood, which is a natural wood that becomes resin soaked from within …the tree. When chopped into small, thin pieces it lights very easily and makes it ideal to start fires. Check out an example of fatwood kindling below. (MORE)
No, you do not have to have a server for a Kindle, but you do need to use it via a wirelsess cable or a 3G connection.
You can read books, play games, listen to music, and even browse the web using free 3G. Click on the related link for more info.
Not really. The kindle's experimental web browser is designed to load text only. Even that takes a while. Even if you did manage to load facebook, the page would be very strange with all pictures removed. Since the buttons are also pictures, they would be replaced with links. Facebook is beyon…d the kindle for now. Without pictures or the capability to load quickly, you'll be better off using a phone, ipod, or computer instead. Since facebook links to so many places, waiting for the kindle to load would take up half your time already. (MORE)
Kindle works with Embed Java, sometime it fails, Slide Power Button, and hold for 15s it will restart. It also happens when you run out of battery, so make sure you recharge your Kindle.
3G for Kindle is the 3G service, known from smart phones, 3G enables you to have internet wherever you go. So 3G on the Kindle means you can take your Kindle anywhere being able to download book, browse the internet, etc.
When a Kindle Fire freezes you automatically shut it down and wait 30 seconds . Then turn it back on and refresh what ever page you was on . I have real life experience with this kind of troubles.
It is a good device to have if you are a dedicated reader. But if you are willling to invest some more money and upgrade it put it to the iPad so you aren't restricted to simply reading book. The iPad let's you do much more. Either way the kindle is sleek, portable, modern, and convenient and doesn'…t much damage to the wallet. (MORE)
You have to make/sign in to an Amazon.com account and provide the necessary information. That way, you are authorized to buy books and have a method for paying for and a device to which the books go to. Go to home>menu (top right)>Settings>Registration.
You have to go to amazon.com and go to "manage account" it should be under there.
It can, if you go to Aa and select Text-to-Speech. It is not available for all books, but it is for some. It also isn't very good, as it mushes words together, but it is there.
There is a store on the kindle that you buy books from but over 1,000 books are free!
First plug the Kindle into an outlet for a few minutes. If it is still unresponsive, move and hold the power switch for ten to twenty seconds.
Simply put, a kindle allows you to download ebooks from Amazon.com and store them in a portable, electronic library. Some Kindles have keyboards and some are touchscreen.
No, currently Kindle is black and white but the new Kindle Color will be released by Amazon on November 21 and is available to pre-order now.

Go to amazon.com and under "shop all departments" (at the top right hand side of the screen) go to "kindle" and then "kindle books"
Kendall Nicole Jenner (born November 3, 1995) is an American socialite, television personality and model. She is featured on the E! reality TV show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians along with the rest of her family.
The Kindle 2 was announced on February 10, 2009. Not sure when he exactly invented it or when it was completely finished.
Depending on your Kindle type, generally, you can't trade any Kindle device for a Kindle Fire, unless the two are completely interchangeable. Not only is a Kindle Fire more expensive than any of the others, but even in chances that there are three different styles of Kindle FIres available, nothing …can be traded for a Kindle Fire these days.

The Kindle keyboard is better IMHO. The keyboard version has tactile buttons - instead of a touch-sensitive screen.
If both of the kindle are registered under your Amazon account then yes you can synchronize the kindles which will trade the books from kindle to kindle.
If it's a standard kindle, you should be able to reset the name by navigating to the 'settings' through the main menu and selecting the option for changing the device name. The kindle must be connected to the internet for this to work so that the online registration of the kindle updates at the same… time. (MORE)

I got my kindle from best buy I have a kindle fire and a regular kindle you can also get them from amzon or if you want a used one from ebay
You can't ever trade your Kindle in for a Kindle Fire due to the costs of the two separate types of operating systems being allowed to run on them. A Kindle Fire, is a whole lot more costly than just a regular Kindle (either Paper White or similar).
The Kindle fire is more of a tablet-like eReader. Therefore, the Kindle Fire has apps that the Paperwhite doesn't. Also, the Kindle Fire has a colored screen, while the Paperwhite is purely monochrome. Also, the way things are viewed on a Paperwhite is different. The Paperwhite operates on a differe…nt style of form of pixilation Amazon calls E-ink, which may take a second longer to view, but is more crisp than the Fire at times. However, the paperwhite in this respect, has a problem where it can't be read in the dark since it's not backlit. (MORE)
You can buy these from store like Best Buy, Walmart, CompUSA, or online at Amazon.com where the different types of kindles are advertised in the middle of the page.
