Throwback Thursday: The Kindle, Generation One

Next week will be the 8th anniversary of the first generation Kindle. There has been a lot of discussion lately about how both the e-book market and the market for e-readers has changed. I thought it would be fun to take a quick video look back at the first Kindle. Pay special attention to that scroll wheel. It was a big deal at the time! I used to go back and forth between my Kindle 1 and my Kindle 3 (Keyboard). Going back to the scroll button tripped me up every time. 🙂

I still love the look of this device! What do you think? Kindles sure have changed….

  1. As long as it still works and you are happy with it, that’s all that counts. 🙂 I don’t exactly suffer from device envy, but I tend to love new features that solve problems. Because of my poor vision, the light on the Paperwhite did that for me and I find that I like reading on it the best. I can also read in bed without bothering DH. But the keyboard was my favorite for a long time…. it is a really good device. As long as it works, enjoy it!
