I remember how exciting November 2007 was for me- I was proposed to by the man of my dreams and the I purchased Amazon’s very first Kindle. It was released a week before and as much as I anticipated my soon to be wedding, I couldn't wait to get my hands (and eyes) on the digital pages. I mean, what did digital pages look like? My mind was filled with imagination of what a Kindle could do. Little did I know this small gadget would change the way millions of people read.
The older Kindle at one point was a new shiny toy, but in the back of my head I echoed what first generation Kindle owners hated to admit- it was slow, bulky, and ugly. Fast forward four years later, the Kindle is smaller, and bigger (depending on if you want the DX). The new Kindle is improved- thinner, and more appealing, unlike your ex’s new liaison.
4th Gen Kindle is an upgrade from the first-gen Kindle. Why do people keep purchasing a Kindle rather than buying a fancy full color tablet with all the frills? The E-Ink is still a stronger statement for readers looking for just that- to read. There’s no distraction to check email, apps, and our tendency for touching colorful screens just for the thrill of it is lost for the thrill of reading. The price is right, the battery life lasts for weeks, and the size beats carrying a one heavy book when a library is in your pocket. The interface has been cleaned up, and there is now a 5-way controller. This particular Kindle has Wi-Fi and enabled free Hot Spots with AT&T. If you want a little more than E-Ink, there’s a variety of Kindle’s to choose from the Kindle family. Yes, four years later, there’s a Kindle family and Gadchick would love for one lucky reader to be a part of it.
