October 21, 2014
FULL TEXT Amazon's Kindle is a tech-industry miracle. That sounds over-the-top; it's not. In 2007, when the company first unveiled its e-reader, the device was an expensive ugly duckling whose future looked marginal at best. The first Kindle, which sold for $400 and was made by a company that had no track record in hardware, had a lot to overcome: the reluctance of the book industry to change its business model; the sentimentality of readers for the printed book; and its egregious industrial design, which looked like the product of the Soviet space program. Worst of all, the Kindle was a dedicated machine. Its only purpose was to let you read books that you purchased from Amazon's online store. In the age of smartphones and apps, when a single phone does just about everything, most dedicated devices have had a rough ride. Sales of digital cameras have crashed because their functions were eaten by phones.
