    Amazon Kindle is an entirely new class of device — a convenient, portable reading device with the ability to wirelessly download books, blogs, magazines, and newspapers. Kindle is designed to provide an exceptional reading experience. Thanks to electronic paper, a revolutionary new display technology, reading Kindle’s screen is as sharp and natural as reading ink on paper. The device will be in stock on November 29, 2007, but you can pre-order one now.


    Product Overview
    • Revolutionary electronic-paper display provides a sharp, high-resolution screen that looks and reads like real paper.
    • Simple to use: no computer, no cables, no syncing.
    • Wireless connectivity enables you to shop the Kindle Store directly from your Kindle—whether you’re in the back of a taxi, at the airport, or in bed.
    • Buy a book and it is auto-delivered wirelessly in less than one minute.
    • More than 88,000 books available, including 100 of 112 current New York Times Best Sellers.
    • New York Times Best Sellers and all New Releases $9.99, unless marked otherwise.
    • Free book samples. Download and read first chapters for free before you decide to buy.
    • Top U.S. newspapers including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post; top magazines including TIME, Atlantic Monthly, and Forbes—all auto-delivered wirelessly.
    • Top international newspapers from France, Germany, and Ireland; Le Monde, Frankfurter Allgemeine, and The Irish Times—all auto-delivered wirelessly.
    • More than 250 top blogs from the worlds of business, technology, sports, entertainment, and politics, including BoingBoing, Slashdot, TechCrunch, ESPN's Bill Simmons, The Onion, Michelle Malkin, and The Huffington Post—all updated wirelessly throughout the day.
    • Lighter and thinner than a typical paperback; weighs only 10.3 ounces.
    • Holds over 200 titles.
    • Long battery life. Leave wireless on and recharge approximately every other day. Turn wireless off and read for a week or more before recharging. Fully recharges in 2 hours.
    • Unlike WiFi, Kindle utilizes the same high-speed data network (EVDO) as advanced cell phones—so you never have to locate a hotspot.
    • No monthly wireless bills, service plans, or commitments—we take care of the wireless delivery so you can simply click, buy, and read.
    • Includes free wireless access to the planet's most exhaustive and up-to-date encyclopedia—Wikipedia.org.
    • Email your Word documents and pictures (.JPG, .GIF, .BMP, .PNG) to Kindle for easy on-the-go viewing.

    I think it's pretty neat and would love to have one. But $400 is pretty darn steep for the device. But then, it does come with free EVDO through Sprint.

    It's amazing how many "reviews" there are for this device from people who have never even seen on in person. Just look at it's product page. More than 400 "reviews" but I can guarantee that not even half of them have used one.
