Kindle: Amazon’s New Wireless Reading Device

November 20, 2007

This wireless, portable device from Amazon.com brings reading to a new level. It allows the user to purchase books from the Kindle Store, and within a minute the book is delivered wirelessly. The store carries 80,000 books in addition to newspapers, magazines, and blogs; and you can read the beginning of any book or magazine for free before you decide to buy it. I won’t go into more technical details, that’s what Amazon is for.

It’s a very interesting concept, but I actually learned that it’s not completely new, there’s also the Sony Reader which I never heard about. And since it’s using a mobile network instead of WiFi, I don’t know how that will work out outside the US. I don’t really like the design, the Sony Reader looks better in my opinion. And I dunno, it’s much nicer when you have all the books piled in a bookcase, don’t you think? It is priced at $399, which is reasonable. I might get my hands on one some day, but only after they make one that works in kuwait and change the ugly design because design is very important to me. The concept is amazing though.
