Bezos Releases Amazon Kindle: Reading 2.0


Gracing the cover of the latest Newsweek issue is Amazon's CEO Jeff Bezos, who discusses a new ebook device called the Amazon Kindle and the The Future of Reading.

The revolutionary Kindle is said to have the dimensions of a paperback book and include a 6-inch E-ink screen powered by a battery that lasts up to thirty hours on a two-hour charge. Named after the ability to evoke the ignition of knowledge, the Kindle will also boast wireless connectivity similar to EVDO, so it will connect anywhere and everywhere! Book prices are said to start at $10, with more than 88,000 titles on sale when the Kindle officially hits store shelves. Additionally, users will also be able to subscribe to newspapers and certain blogs for a monthly fee.

I don't know about you, but I still can't seem to warm up to the idea of curling up with a plastic digital book for a bedtime reading session. Although I can see where it would come in handy. . . .What do you think?
