Introduction

If you've sat at a bus stop, coffee shop, public park, or waiting room anywhere since 2007, chances are good that you've seen Amazon's Kindle eReader in someone's hands. It was the first device (or first practical device, we should add) that allowed readers to carry an entire library of books without straining a muscle or limiting their reading options.

Following up on the success of the Kindle series of eReaders, Amazon launched its contender in the tablet arena, the Fire, in November of 2011. Though its performance pales compared to the iPad in most regards, the Fire sits at a price point of $200 – very hard to ignore. Buyers on a budget can finally afford a tablet without having to settle for far less.

Whether you're new to the Kindle series or trying to decide whether to step up to a newer model, here's the skinny on the different operating systems for Kindle's top eReaders and tablets.
