Heh, I love it, you know a product is going to tank when an entire forum of early adopters say it's a piece of crap.
I think it's a joke, and Bezos is on crack.
They'll sell a few, but I can's see them taking off.
If I had to read e-books, I'd buy an iPhone or a tablet PC.
There's an idea, Amazon should have come up with a folding tablet PC that opened like a book and had pages on both sides, functioned as a cell phone/PC/PDA/GPS.
You still don't get it - the entire point of an E-Reader is the E-Ink screen. I have an iPhone and a laptop and they both stink for reading on for long periods of time because of the backlight. The Kindle is an amazing device for what it does, but I do think it requires some additional ergonomics work. I'm used to holding it now but it's definitely not the way I would prefer to holdl it. Now, if they could make an actual Tablet PC with an E-Ink screen, that would be something really neat. The OLPC is pretty close but it uses a different technology, not to mention it looks like a Disney toy.
