I am not sure if I am ready for this high price item (available on 2/24) that is supposed (to try again to) replace our beloved paper.
- light-weight & thin
- more battery life & storage
- shop wirelessly to purcha$e titles
- can play mp3s
- access blogs via RSS & wikipedia
- display reads like paper
- speech to text (now this is hott!)
Supports (.MOBI, .PRC) but not completely .PDFs?! Reserve my place in line? Naaa… Sorry Amazon, PSP or even an iPod/iPhone is a little more sexy and has way more functions than both of your Kindles.
However, I really need to have one in my hand and use it before I totally dismiss this product. I really like that feature of the capability to text-to-speech feature. I wonder how it sounds? I hope not like Marvin, do ya’ll remember Marvin?
Guess I’ll check out eBay and pick up a first gen Kindle or just scrape up some cash for a Kindle 2 (Right now…I think that IKEA has first dibs of any future purchases of mine).
Also, I will have to keep my ears to the street to find out if the same issues in this blog post by applies to the Kindle 2.
