Amazon Kindle

Amazon set out to deliver an entirely new class of device when they started designing the Kindle three years ago. I have to say that they’ve succeeded.

My boss has a Kindle, and he let me borrow it for a weekend, and I have to say the thing is pretty damned slick. The hardware is a joy to hold, and the screen is a pleasure to read. The software has that “just works” quality that you’ve come to expect from Apple.

The fact that you can read the first chapter of a book before you buy it is really cool, letting you “sample the wares” so to speak, just like you were in a real bookstore, except you were sitting on the beach, or on the bus or train, or chilling at home. You can also start a newspaper subscription with a two-week trial, before you commit… and then if you like it, whenever you want to read the newspaper you’ll have it with you (without all those ink stains on your thumbs and fingers).

There are 110,000 books, newspapers, magazines and blogs available on the Kindle, so, go to Amazon.com, and watch the video about it if you haven’t yet, and then start thinking about when you’re going to order yours.
