Kindle is Amazon's Original Wireless Reading Device. It is a software and hardware platform which has been developed by Amazon.com for rendering and displaying e-books and other digital media. Kindle hardware devices can be used without a computer. Users can download books or electronic reading material on the Kindle from amazon.com. The kindle is a small handy book sized device.
Users can bookmark, highlight, and look up content. Pages can be dog-eared for reference and notes can be added to relevant content. While a book is open on the display, menu options allow users to search for synonyms and definitions from the built-in dictionary. The device also remembers the last page read for each book. Pages can be saved as a "clipping", or a text file containing the text of the currently displayed page. All clippings are appended to a single file, which can be downloaded over a USB cable.
The future trend points towards electronic reading. Kindle provides the convenience of storing multiple GB of reading material and carrying it with virtually no weight and volume
