The Kindle® electronic reading devices launched in February 2008, available only at Amazon.
Early content was often pre-1928 public domain books & stories,
but current publishers and authors soon made thousands of modern books available as well.
Delivery of content is free, via Whispernet in the U.S.A., and is also available in a growing number of other
countries since November 2009. Every device includes free 3G wireless internet access to Wikipedia.

In November of 2009, Amazon made Kindle software available FREE for Windows PC,
with the FREE Apple Mac & iPhone/iPod & iPad & Blackberry versions released in April 2010,
and a version for Google's Android in July 2010.

Announced in September 2011: The Kindle Fire tablet computer will be available in mid-November;
the Kindle Fire has a full-color multi-touch 7-inch screen with Wi-Fi and costs only $199.00!
Available one week later will be the Kindle Touch ebook reader {see below}.

Teaser news release in late August 2012: The original Kindle Fire ebook is sold out; estimates are that Amazon sold
6.7 million units. Amazon has scheduled a new products announcement for September 6th that will probably include
details on the replacement device/s, just in time for the Xmas shopping season.

Amazon revealed on 6 September 2012 their several new Kindle ebook reader models; all have storage capacity doubled to 16GB and 'longer battery life'. The 8.9-inch models have a front-facing camera for Skype connection and two antennas (for access to standard 2.4GHz and less-used 5GHz bands). The 7-inch Kindle Fire HD will list for $199 and ship on September 14th; the 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD will list for $299 and the 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD for 4G networks will list for $499 - both will ship on November 20th. There will also be a 10-inch-diagonal Kindle Fire tablet as teaser-announced in May. Details were quickly posted online and are updated here {below}.

BULLETIN 10/2012: Not everybody is happy about the new capabilities of the Kindle. Target Stores quit selling Kindle machines in May 2012, and Wal-Mart followed in September 2012. The perceived problem is that customers use the Kindle direct con-nection to Amazon to comparison shop; if the price of any product is cheaper at Amazon, then they order the item online while standing in the retail store! The chainstores's unhappiness is understandable, but the logic of removing Kindle is unclear, since customers can still use their Kindle or their iPod/iPad or Android or other smartphones for this kind of comparison shopping without hindrance.

Kindle Fire HDX tablets were announced September 2013, with the 7" models available to ship in (late) October
and the 8.9" models available to ship in November.

link pages – so those coded entries were removed from this Kindle page and installed on the more-general Nordell Bookstores Group Amazon Electronic Hardware Page. (9/2016)
