The history of the Kindle in Australia

Kindle is designed from the ground up for reading. Amazon launched Kindle in Australia in 2009 with the vision of offering every book, ever written, in any language, all available within 60 seconds. We spent more than three years building the original Kindle—a first-of-its-kind portable reader that looked and read like real paper, even in bright sunlight.
