Amazon has launched AmazonKindle, a new electronic device for reading e-books you purchase from Amazon.
- Great screen that is easy on the eyes.
- Impressive design and user experience. (Although a touch screen would be more human-friendly.)
- Automatic wireless delivery of books, magazines, newspapers, and some blogs. No need to sync with a computer. No monthly wireless bills.
- See a demo.
It’s expensive ($400). You have to buy the books from Amazon (most are $10).
- Can’t use documents you already own in other formats like MobiReader, MS Reader, PDF, etc. Uses a proprietary format that is DRMed.
Overall, the best I’ve seen yet. Although it won’t have people bringing down Amazon.com’s computers buying it.
