The New Kindle E  -  reader And The Kindle Fire

When the Kindle was first introduced, not a lot of people knew what e-readers were about or the purpose of this new technology. In fact, it didn't sell well in it's first year, and it continued that way for the next three years while lowering the price tag as well. Now five years later after the first Kindle was released, and eight editions later, it has become a worldwide success story. It has now surpassed paperback books, because more people are wanting books that are instantly available, light and easy to handle, and added E-Ink for reading that is easy for their eyes.

The two latest additions top the Kindle franchise are the fourth generation e-reader and the Kindle Fire. Lets first take look the latest e-reader. What is different about it and why is it better than ordinary paperback books? There are many reasons why, but lets highlight the main reasons. It's 30% lighter that the previous generation, so that it's not heavy to walk around with because it's as thin as a pencil. It's also 18% smaller while still having the 6 inch frame so it's small to fit in any pocket. It's also got built in Wifi, so you can download your books under 60 seconds.

While the e-reader has become a must have, Kindle has finally created their best creation yet; the Kindle Fire, with an amazing 7 inch colour touchscreen. It has a lot of similar features as the new iPad 3, but if you had to decide which would be the best option for you, the KF would be much better option. For instance, it is much more lighter than an iPad and it's easier to carry around. You can enjoy the same things that you get on your Kindle Fire on your iPhone, iPad, Android, BlackBerry, Windows 7 phones, internet-ready TVs, Roku, TiVo, and through your web browser. Members that are on Amazon Prime can have 13,000 hours of great movies and TV shows, as well as borrow thousands of popular books, at no additional costs. Ofcourse there are some minor features that are not included in the KF that are in the iPad 3, like 2 camera's, 3G, Bluetooth, TV in or out, and low cost apps. But overall it is the better choice, let alone that it's 300 dollars less than the iPad.

If you were deciding if you should get a Kindle, then I hope that this review has been an eye opener for you. Whether you want the luxery e-reader Kindle, or the state of the art Kindle Fire, it's entirely up to you.
