Everything Amazon Is Supposedly Working On

You can always expect that Amazon will push out new Kindles and Fires year by year, but the Everything Store has so much more in the works. From travel sites to retail stores, there’s a whole bunch of rumoured stuff Amazon might be getting ready to roll out. Here’s a breakdown.


Kindle Voyage Teardown: It Sure Is Cramped Behind That Glass Screen

For those who prefer the finer things in life, Amazon’s Kindle Voyage provides a luxurious e-reading experience with a steep $US290 price tag — if you also want wireless connectivity. But that didn’t stop the folks at iFixit from immediately tearing it asunder once they got their hands on one. If you think the Voyage is pretty on the outside, you’ll definitely enjoy its electronic eye candy on the inside.


Kindle Just Got A Family Plan So You Can Finally Share Your Ebooks

Kindle announced an update today that lets people share books they have purchased with their family. Amazon let people know a family sharing program was coming a few months ago, and now it’s finally here.


My First Kindle: I Finally Stopped Multitasking And Got Lost In A Novel

Still don’t have an ereader? I can respect that. Physical books just feel better. Print is sacred. I’m with you — or at least I was, until our reviews editor thrust a Kindle in my hand and made me use it.


Kobo Aura H2O Review: A Gorgeous, Waterproof Screen That No One Needs

The aftermarket-treated Waterproof Kindle is just about perfect: an already fantastic e-reader with the added bonus of being built like a rock. But all that comes with one hell of a price tag — $US240, specifically. The new, waterproof $US190 Kobo Aura H2O, though, promises to deliver on all those points for a fraction of the cost.


Amazon Has A Faster Kindle Fire HDX And A Fleet Of Cheap, Tiny Tablets

Last year, Amazon’s Kindle tablets really grew up. They got fantastic and stylish new design, and a software update to back it up. This year, Amazon’s trotting out a new 8.9 Kindle Fire HDX with faster guts. You won’t find a 7-inch version if that’s what you’re looking for, but Amazon does have some staggeringly cheap new Kindle Fire HDs to take its place for just $US100 a pop.


Kindle Voyage: This Is What A $200 E-Reader Looks Like (It's Gorgeous)

It’s been a few years since e-ink Kindles took a big step forward. 2012′s Kindle Paperwhite was the last big splash. But now Amazon’s got a new, beautiful, premium e-reader for you to read words off of. This is the Kindle Voyage.


Leaked Details About Two New Kindles Appear Online

Details about two new upcoming Kindle readers have leaked online. A German website first pointed out that information about the next generation of Amazon’s ereaders had appeared on the German version of Amazon’s website. It’s gone now, but not before revealing that there will be two new types: an upgraded “basic” version, and a new high-end product called the Kindle Voyage.


Watch The Evolution Of Amazon's Kindle Hardware In A Single GIF

The Amazon Fire Phone is kind of whack, but being ugly is not one of its problems. Amazon’s hardware design has improved over the years, and the GadgetLove team created this GIF to illustrate how its products have evolved since that first clunky, oddly designed Kindle.


The Onion Profiles A New Kindle That Brags About Your Taste In Books

Bookworms who’ve baulked at upgrading to an ereader have a long list of reasons why they won’t give up their paper copies. But there’s only one real reason why anyone would carry around a book anymore: It lets them show off what they’re reading in public. And as The Onion reveals, that’s what led Amazon to create a new version of the Kindle that shouts the title of your current book so everyone knows how well read you are.
