Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
I don’t know about you, but the new pics of the Kindle 2 look stellar. If the articles on engadget and other blog sites are true, we’ll find out if the pictures are legitimate on 2/24/2009. The line to buy one forms behind me. Warm up those credit cards.
[UPDATE for 2/9/2009] I ordered one today. I’ll write about it when I receive it in a few weeks. Looking forward to it.
I used one of these on the flight back from Seattle last week. While I liked the form factor, the back lighting was lack luster. In a bright room, its less than ideal to read. The Sony has better backlighting, but you pay out the nose for it.
You were looking at a kindle v1 I assume. I don't know how different they are yet, but I thought the kindle 1 was nice.
