What is an eReader?
An eReader, also called an e-reader, e-book reader or e-book device, is a mobile electronic device that is designed primarily for the purpose of reading digital e-books and periodicals.
More features for better engagement
The new Kindle Fire HD is now in its seventh edition, and despite an array of new and improved features, it still manages to be reasonably priced. Retailing at US$139 on Amazon, the seven inch, high-definition display tablet includes both front and rear cameras, stereo speakers, and a fast quad-core processor of up to 1.5 GHz.
Digital content and identification software
As well as the improved internal features of the Kindle Fire HD, the newer model also comes with an extensive variety of digital content, with access to movies, music, social media apps, games and more. Kindle’s identification software, Firefly, also allows you to discover more than 100 million items, making the Kindle Fire HD stand out from its competitors.
Ebooks and audio-books
Finally, for those of who you haven’t forgotten the humble beginnings of the Kindle as an eReader, the new Kindle Fire HD comes with a free trial of Kindle Unlimited, meaning you have access to over 700,000 ebooks. With the extra apps to compete with though – such as Facebook, Instagram and Netflix – you may have to switch over to offline mode to make sure you can concentrate!
