Many ebook reader enthusiasts label Kindle as a “consumer” product. I would know, I was one of them. Two years ago, when you looked at Kindle, what you saw was a tightly controlled closed ecosystem tied with hardware that wasn’t much better than the competition.
Now though, things are different. Kindle offers best in class hardware (especially with the Paperwhite screen), a huge library of books and has updated its software to be more pro user friendly.
