Today the Kindle turns five and it's come a long, long way in that past half-decade. In case you don't remember, in 2007 the first generation Kindle had a 800 x 600 screen, 250 MB internal memory, and was the only model to ever have a microSD slot. And it launched for the low, low price of $400. Despite the pricetag, the device was wildly popular, selling out in the first few hours, and remaining out of stock until April 2008.
Kinja is in read-only mode. We are working to restore service.
