Perhaps this gadget has created a diversion in the younger generation from indulging them to games and social media to developing the delicate love towards reading books. No matter how great this gadget is, the journey through the years was not a constantly delightful ride. Kindle, known to many as ‘the iPod of reading’ was launched in November 2007. The first edition did not offer a touch screen which made the operating and navigating a difficult process. This caused a disappointment in users; however, the Kindle was swapped by its better twin in February 2009 which received better reviews and more purchasers.
People’s personal little library was not always people’s favorite forever. In between its journey of 10 years, the Apple launched its iPad, which stole the thunder from Kindle by Amazon. A bigger screen, better processing and the touch screen, light adjustment features, more storage space all this created a void between Kindle buyers for a significant amount of time.
