Even if you are NOT a total gadget freak (like I am) and you don’t have room on your Christmas or Hanukkah list for a $400 toy, you have to see what this thing can do. It is completely wireless and computerless; meaning there is no
syncing to your computer (like a Palm or an iPod.) Books are purchased and downloaded directly from the device, anywhere you can get a cell phone signal. The embedded cell phone technology is completely free, you pay only about $10 for those
books you purchase. Also available are popular magazines, blogs, Wikipedia and an embedded dictionary (how cool is that?) For ten cents, you can also email your own documents to the device. Only fault I
could come up with is the lack of PDF support, but I have read that if you convert PDFs to a MOBI format, it all works. Anyway, you gotta see these videos at the Amazon site.
Am I buying one? Not yet .. but maybe … soon.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my American readers. I am cooking a maple-glazed turkey, garlic mashed potatoes and roasted Brussels sprouts with shallots.
