Three of those devices are new Kindle e-readers that the company describes as “smaller, lighter, and more affordable than ever before,” and the fourth device is much anticipated Kindle Fire, Amazon’s Android-based color tablet.
The latest Kindle e-reader comes with a new design that makes it 30% lighter and 18% smaller. The new Kindle that is resized to easily fit your pocket turns pages 10% faster and features the same 6 inch E Ink display. Amazon has “reached the magical two-digit price point for Kindle,” and priced its new generation e-reader at $79.
Amazon Silk introduces – a “split browser” architecture that accelerates the power of the mobile device hardware by using the computing speed and power of the Amazon Web Services cloud (AWS). The Silk browser software resides both on Kindle Fire and on the massive server fleet that comprises the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). With each page request, Silk dynamically determines a division of labor between the mobile hardware and Amazon EC2 (i.e. which browser sub-components run where) that takes into consideration factors like network conditions, page complexity and the location of any cached content. The result is a faster web browsing experience, and it’s available exclusively on Kindle Fire, Amazon’s new Kindle for movies, music, books, magazines, apps, games, and web browsing.
“Kindle Fire introduces a revolutionary new web browser called Amazon Silk,” said Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com Founder and CEO. “We refactored and rebuilt the browser software stack and now push pieces of the computation into the AWS cloud. When you use Silk – without thinking about it or doing anything explicit – you’re calling on the raw computational horsepower of Amazon EC2 to accelerate your web browsing.”
