The best part about the basic, non-tablet Kindle is the constricted reading environment.
Reading on the Kindle is pure joy simply because there’s no other feasible distractions. The Internet browsing experience on the Internet is purposely bad. There’s also no apps.
It’s no mistake Amazon wants you to focus on reading and buy more books. That’s why the Kindle is only $119.
Apple may own the hyper-connected tablet and smartphone market but Amazon built a device dedicated to reading. As long as Amazon keeps the Kindle simple and distraction free, it’s got a continued breadwinner.
