Amazon Kindle (first generation)
Amazon's first kindle was unlike any other e-ink reader, not only because it was attached to the largest online retailer, but also due to its peculiar shape.
The first Kindle looked mostly normal from the front, but turned on its side there was a stark wedge shape. That gave Amazon room for ports and buttons, with a taper that narrowed to where the buttons were. Amazon ditched the design feature in all future models, going for rounded corners instead.
