What'sInAName writes: As anticipated, Amazon has just released Kindle , their wireless e-book reader. The reader can apparently download books wirelessly (via Sprint's EVDO network). Utilizing electronic paper, Kindle is said to provide a crisp black-and-white screen that resembles the appearance and readability of printed paper. The screen works using ink, just like books and newspapers, but displays the ink particles electronically. It reflects light like ordinary paper and uses no backlighting, eliminating the glare associated with other electronic displays. The cost is $399, and some books seem to be going for $9.99. This would make a nice stocking stuffer!
