What is a Kindle?


First released in 2007, the first generation Kindle sold out in five and a half hours and remained out of stock for five months. There have since been many iterations of Kindle, with the device changing markedly with each major release. Kindle Touch saw the Kindle keyboard retired in favour of a touchscreen, while the display was upgraded to a lit LED screen with the Kindle Paperwhite.

The first Kindle without an E Ink display was the Kindle Fire, launched in 2012, which was an Android-based tablet with a colour touchscreen display.
