Kindle, an Amazon e-book reader, has gained immense popularity in recent times owing to its features that allow readers to download e-books and read with relative ease anytime, anywhere. Recent speculations suggest that a Kindle Car application might be launched by Amazon that will allow readers to listen to book narration while driving.
Recent development in ebooks means that devices such as Kindle have slowly and gradually replaced physical books in many cases. Kindle has many features which allow its readers to learn to speed read, like adjustable margins, which is one important advantage of the reading device over physical books. However, readers are unable to enjoy the benefits of reading while driving their automobiles. This limitation can be easily achieved if Kindle technology is integrated to be used with an audio interface suitable for use while driving. The Kindle application will allow readers to listen to the narration from the point where they stopped reading on the ebook, and this can allow readers maximum pleasure without creating any prolonged delays in completing their books.
Kindle updates through car-friendly applications will not only allow Amazon to exploit a large potential market but will also be beneficial for the readers. Readers are now able to enjoy the pleasure of reading when otherwise unoccupied, but the driving seat is one place that simply does not allow a person to read on an ebook (or a printed book for that matter). However, with Kindle updates, readers that spent a considerable amount of time commuting will be able to enjoy their favorite literature while simultaneously reaching their desired location.
Some might argue that a connected car application for Kindle might create disruption during driving that can be hazardous. However, this application is an audio-only multimedia service and therefore will not pose any hazards to the driver or passenger’s life, so long as drivers remain alert and focused on traffic and navigation.
Audio books have already been launched to cater to this need but an application that integrates ebooks and car audio systems has yet to be launched. However, Amazon already has the desired technology that will allow Kindle to be integrated into the car interface with relative ease. Such an update will definitely be beneficial for readers that want to combine the tedious task of driving and the pleasure of reading.
