IIRC, it was that Amazon sold all their ebooks in .azw, which is .mobi with DRM (much to the annoyance of publishers, the retailer is who enables DRM), and only the Kindle can read .azw. So (initially) to read ebooks bought on Amazon, you need a Kindle, and if you bought a Kindle, and built a nice .azw-format library, it is with Kindle that you are stuck.
