Amazon, today with an email sent to its customers, announced to bring a cloud storage option for its Kindle e-reader and tablet users. Amazon would now allow its customers to archive the Kindle e-library at the Amazon Cloud Drive.
Competing with the other companies, including Dropbox and Google Drive, Amazon has now doubled the cloud storage from 5GB to 10GB and the user’s content on the Kindle devices would automatically be stored in folder with a name “My Send-to-Kindle Docs” which would help users in organizing and accessing the content in an efficient way.
It would be possible for one to upload the files through a computer or a smartphone or even by sending an email. After being uploaded to the cloud it would be possible for an user to access the files, including DOC, TXT and PDF, among all other devices including Kindle.
The email sent stated , “Starting today, all personal documents that you have archived in your Kindle Library will be available to access, delete, organize, and share from your Amazon Cloud Drive. You can see these documents in a new “My Send-to-Kindle Docs” folder alongside all of your saved content such as photos and personal videos.”
On the other end, the Seattle based e-commerce giant is also in news for bringing up a Kindle Fire 3D smartphone by the end of second half this year. The reports stated that the Amazon is expected to announce a 3D smartphone which will be capable of displaying 3D images without a need of 3D glasses. Amazon has already introduced it to the developers and by the end of second half this year, this new device will also be in hands of the customers.
