A very positive Kindle review
If there's one company that wants the e-book business to succeed, it's Amazon. The mammoth online retailer may have moved well beyond its book-based beginnings, but its innovative Kindle e-book reader shows a lasting love of the printed word. The device features a sharp, readable electronic ink display and a cellular modem that gives readers free, direct access to the Kindle store for buying books and getting RSS feeds. The Kindle will set you back $400, and Amazon charges additional fees for books, magazines, and even for converting your own files to be displayed on the device. There are problems with the Kindle's design, too, but even so, this is the e-book's best hope of getting back in the game.
