What's This?

Are you an Amazon Kindle user? Do you love to download new books every now and then, so you fill your brain with interesting stories and information regularly? If yes, here is news about Amazon Kindle you should not miss, as doing so would make you lose your internet connection for the device.


Amazon has asked Kindle users to update their devices before March 22, or else it will lose internet connectivity. And as you know, your Amazon Kindle will die without internet, as you will not be able to access either the Kindle Store or download books from the Cloud. The announcement of the update was followed by a subtle warning. Here is what it says:

“If you do not update your device by March 22, 2016, you will receive the following message on your device: Your Kindle is unable to connect at this time. Please make sure you are within wireless range and try again. If the problem persists, please restart your Kindle from the Menu in Settings and try again. If you see this message on your device on or after March 22, you will need to manually install the latest software update for your device.”
