  • 2007_amazon_kindledet.jpgAmazon Kindle product page with video- scroll down for the demo
  • 10.3 ounces
  • black and white e-paper display (will Kindle 2.0 offer color)
  • free wireless downloads using EV-DO not Wifi
  • it DOES NOT use an iTunes style arrangement to download. Books download straight to Kindle.
  • built-in dictionary
  • the email functionality is unclear – can it send and receive email or just send?
  • it has a Firewire port – why? Charging?

This hasn’t changed my opinion on Kindle – read it here.

  1. One thing I can say is that it would be awesome if Amazon let me have digital versions of the books I have already bought through my Amazon account.

  2. the Kindle’s appearance is certainly reminiscent of an Apple product
