Recently, while in the USA, I met a woman who had a 1st generation Kindle, created by Amazon. It's a really cool e-book reader. The latest version, the Kindle DX, has a bigger screen and holds up to 3,500 books. [Click here for a video demo. For a few recent reviews of the Kindle DX, click here and here]
Amazon stated goal is to put every book in print into digital form. So far, there are over 300,000 titles available for purchase from their Kindle web site, along with a host of newspapers and magazines. Some are saying that the Kindle will become the iPod for books. Sony also has an e-Reader. Will Apple bring something similar out soon?
The Kindle isn't available for sale outside of the USA (although there are ways to bypass the system – click here).
As an avid book lover, I'm tempted … but haven't bought one yet 🙂 However, I talked my brother-in-law, who lives in the USA, into getting one, so I'll see how he enjoys it first.
