These days, ebooks are created by using different programs to edit documents. With the availability of HTML5, Kno, and other applications, web designers can use them to publish documents. This is called “web design”. Ebooks can be purchased or downloaded from sites such as Inktera. Internet services such as Scribd.com, Kindle, or Google Play provide ebooks in the form and can be accessed from a variety of different gadgets. Ebooks may be read using different applications, such as Google Chrome for Android, Reader, Kindle, and Firefox for Windows, Apple's Safari, on a variety of devices, or from a regular computer.
In April 2015, Amazon announced the Amazon Kindle Oasis. This model has a 7-inch display with a resolution of 640 by 1280 pixels. It has a paper-thin, or "ultra-thinness" body that consists of a single sheet of high-grade titanium and magnesium as well as a flexible AMOLED display and back cover. This makes the device 4.5 millimeters thick in thickness, allowing for thinner e-readers than the 6.7 millimeter thickness of the earlier Kindle Oasis models. The Kindle Oasis models have adjustable shelves to optimize their thickness. It features a stainless steel frame. The display has a resolution of 300 ppi, which gives it a screen resolution of 707 × 1024 pixels. The battery life is estimated at two weeks and is charged fast enough to read a book in about two hours.
Although a e-Book is only a digital version of a printed book, it can have benefits over the printed book in that it does not have a finite shelf-life. In this sense, some books, like newspapers, are e-Books with a published, fixed schema, but retaining their knowledge of when content was updated. This means that an e-Book will be maintained and possible updates to its content will be made available for download over time, as they were made in the printed edition. d2c66b5586
