GLENN DERENE LOOKS AT the new Amazon Kindle e-reader. You can get InstaPundit on it, I'm told.
Photos here. Comparison with the Sony Reader here, along with this observation: "One of the Kindle’s biggest competitors may actually be a device that isn’t even in the same category: the iPhone. The iPhone isn’t particularly adept at dealing with ebooks yet, but it probably will be very soon. It might have a smaller screen, but it does everything else the Kindle can do in terms of hardware (albeit with a slower connection). And if Apple or someone else comes up a way to buy and download ebooks as easily as the Kindle store, these two identically-priced uber-devices might be in a fight that neither company anticipated."
Some thoughts on aesthetics, here.
