10th Anniversary of Amazon’s Kindle Book Store, Kindle Series, and Fire Tablet Series in Japan
– To commemorate the 10th anniversary, a special page will be opened and a campaign will be held –
This month, Amazon celebrated the 10th anniversary of the opening of the Kindle book store, which provides e-books in Japan, and the launch of the Kindle series and Fire tablet series. In the fall of 2012, Amazon opened the Kindle Book Store and launched the e-book reader Kindle Paperwhite, 7-inch tablet Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Fire (currently Fire tablet). We have been striving to realize various innovations in order to make our products even better.
Today, the Kindle Book Store has expanded its selection to more than 7 million books, from novels, business books, manga, and magazines to content that can be read for free. We have also expanded convenient services that are close to customers who love reading, such as “Prime Reading,” an all-you-can-read service for customers. In the Kindle series, we offer 6 models, including a kids model, and we offer 8 models, including a kids model, in the Fire tablet series. In addition, Kindle Direct Publishing, a service that allows individual authors to publish books on the Kindle book store, has created opportunities for customers to encounter wonderful works and connect authors with customers.
To commemorate the 10th anniversary, we opened the “10th Anniversary Page” (https://amzn.to/3CfG0mq) today. On the commemorative page, Amazon introduces 10 commitments that Amazon has put into Amazon devices and Kindle book stores for customers who like reading, novelist Keisuke Haneda, TV producer Noriyuki Sakuma, model Natsume Mito, etc. , We also introduce congratulatory messages from authors and celebrities who love reading, new Amazon devices that enrich the reading experience, and campaigns commemorating the 10th anniversary. In addition, about the evolution of the Kindle book store, the Kindle series, and the Fire tablet series, which took on the challenge of improving the reading experience of Japanese customers, see About Amazon blog, “Enriching the reading experience. Amazon brings books to life.” Looking back on the 10 years we have walked with everyone we
love (https://www.aboutamazon.jp/news/devices/a-look-back-over-the-last-10-years-of-amazon-devices-and- book-lovers )”.
