A Kindle is a compact electronic gadget designed by Amazon, the online retailer, for reading books. On it, you can download books through wireless technology rather than downloading music to an iPod or MP3 player.

The Fire, and later the Fire HD, were released in early 2012, featuring greater capability than previous versions and a tablet-like interface based on the Android operating system. It contains a color screen and basic functions like video and audio streaming and the ability to function as an e-reader.

While these devices come with many functionalities similar to a regular smart portable device, they do not have your regular Play or App Store, but the Amazon store. This implies it may be a hassle downloading apps, like non-Amazon browsers on these devices.
