Kindle coming to Android and Windows tablets

John Moe Jan 4, 2011

Eventually, Amazon will make a Kindle that operates inside a different Kindle. It’ll be like Russian Nesting Kindles. Joining the array of Kindle apps for iPhone, PCs, laptops, iPads, and everything else will be the impending new tablets.

Because listen to me now: THE POINT OF THE KINDLE IS NOT THE KINDLE. The Kindle is a mechanism through which you buy books that Amazon doesn’t have to ship to you. The Kindle is not the steak, it’s the plate.
