One big step closer to e-book reality: Amazon Kindle

Just announced last month is Amazon's strangely styled and potentially disruptive new e-book reader, dubbed "Kindle."

I don't know about you but that title makes me think of Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451... Get video, images and blurbs from Amazon or google it for alternate perspectives.

Chief on the features list is wireless connectivity -- with no monthly fee -- using Sprint's high-speed (EVDO) network, more like an advanced mobile phone than a laptop with wi-fi.
The gadget sells for 400. USD and seems to be sold between now and Christmas....

Could be interesting to see how this entry plays into the emerging ecologies of literate media and media literacy.
