Amazon Kindle

Posted by chetan on November 23, 2007 in books, misc

i was close to one-clicking one tonight.

pros —
evdo (over sprint network)
web browser
buy books directly from the device
books are cheaper (max 9.99, but not as cheap as used books)
can display other file formats (txt, jpg, png, prc, doc, html)
only 10oz (book i’m reading now weighs 1.6lbs)

cons —
drm – can’t borrow/lend books
price (400$)
price of books

really the main thing stopping me, i think, is that i have a couple of books that i’ve yet to read. maybe after that i’ll buy it. or i just might end up buying it this weekend anyway..
