Kindle is a failure November 19, 2007

$400 and books cost $10? I can buy a used book from the amazon marketplace shipped for less, and when EVDO is phased out it’ll be a paperweight since it won’t sync with a computer. I think amazon still sells regular ebooks, right? Ones that can be used with a $400 eeepc that does a hell of a lot more and is still lightweight?

    I am looking for good e-book reader for almost three years. Look what happened for this period with notebooks – the technology so improved and prices went down! And what we see with e-book readers? I will only start considering buying e-reader when I will see something with A4 format, e-ink 300 dpi, ability to load my own content (including PDF), and price < $150. Otherwise it is really not worth buying existing products – easier and cheaper to buy real books or read texts from notebook (they are very cheap now).

    Overpriced bloatware, doesn’t work outside the USA, DRMed nonsense and doesn’t support formats people want. Why would I pay $360 for a device like this when I could buy a Netbook or an iPod Touch for the same money? Plus $10 to RENT a book? C’mon.
