I WANT ONE:
“Amazon Kindle is an e-book reader—an embedded system for reading electronic books (e-books)—launched in the United States by prominent online bookseller Amazon.com in November 2007. It uses an electronic paper display, reads the proprietary Kindle (AZW) format, and downloads content over Amazon Whispernet, which uses the Sprint EVDO.”
In laymen’s terms, the Kindle is this totally awesome invention where you can read books on this tiny handheld gameboy-like thing. You download entire books from the Internet for about $10. Subscriptions to newspapers are available as well. And if you only want to read the first chapter of a book, IT’S FREE! This handy device also comes with a built-in dictionary. There will never be an excuse to not knowing the meaning of a word again!
I recently read a review of the Kindle in Esquire. At first, I was a little apprehensive about the Kindle, just like Barry Sonnenfeld. However, we have both seen the light. I know what I am asking for this Christmas…!
