A New Chapter for the E-book?

Relatively positive BusinessWeek review for Amazon Kindle

Amazon deserves high marks for coming up with the first e-book reader to function completely independently of a computer and for radically simplifying the setup. When you purchase a Kindle with your Amazon account information already entered, a radio built into the device gets you up and running on Sprint Nextel's (S ) data network with no activation and no subscription required. You take the reader out of the box, go straight to Amazon's online Kindle store, make your book selection, and it downloads in seconds. (War and Peace took less than a minute.)
