They’re only selling in the U.S. at the moment but I’m sure they’ll be more widely available soon.
They say that it’ll hold up to 200 books. That’d keep me going for a while. You can also download blogs, newspapers and magazines to read wherever you are.
Amazon Kindle is an electronic book (e-book) service launched in the United States by Amazon.com in November 2007. It uses an electronic paper display, reads the proprietary Kindle (AZW) format, and downloads content over Amazon Whispernet, which uses the Sprint EVDO network. This means that unlike previously existing e-book readers, the Kindle can be used without the need for a computer. Whispernet is accessible through Kindle without any fee. On the release day, the Kindle store had more than 88,000 digital titles available for download. The Kindle sold out in five and a half hours. – Wikipedia.org
I’m going on a long flight in April next year (more on that soon) and this would be very handy.
Do you think it’ll catch on? Obviously there is no shortage of people willing to give it a try.
