Here a some key features that we like:

  • lighter and thinner than a typical paperback book.
  • "paper-like" screen that makes it easier on the eyes to read as opposed to reading a typical PDA or Computer screen.kindle
  • ability to purchase content from Amazon.com, we're talking about the 88,000 books available.
  • built in EVDO network ( 3G wireless at 2.4 megabits per second on the go, no service fees) capability to allow you to purchase and view updated content.
  • Read for a week and maybe more with wireless turned off

We may not be running out to buy this device at it's $400 price tag, but as more companies jump on the bandwagon to get similar products out we'll be waiting...
