I’ve become a fan of electronic books and readers. I’m on my second Sony Reader, having recently upgraded from my original PRS-500 to the new PRS-505. I was able to fly to Europe, spend three weeks roaming around, read 4+ books, and cary just this one small package.
It’s rumored that Monday, Amazon will launch its long-awaited Kindle reader for $100 more than the Sony. But it’s said to include Sprint EVDO connectivity to the Amazon.com eBook store and other features. I’ll be particularly interested to see if the display is as good or even better than Sony’s, which is pretty sweet. I just spent $300. Will I have to spend another $400 to keep up with the latest gadgets? Let’s see what the initial reviews say next week.
