Buying a Kindle

| | Comments (1)

Well, the little iPhone Kindle app has convinced me that a Kindle2 might not be a total waste of money. I'm actually enjoying read both academic and non-academic books on the iPhone. Although the Kindle2 doesn't have a backlight, it looks like it'd be a good way to read before bed or on the airplane.

I wish the Kindle2 had WiFi, I guess that -- along with the backlight -- is my big concern for the unit. Especially as Sprint might be going bankrupt if it continues to bleed customers like it is now. I wonder what will happen to the Kindle's EVDO if that happens....

I'd love to hear from anyone who has one.

I also wonder what it would take to get Cornell to publish Deaf in Japan on the Kindle... hmm...

I've never bought a Kindle for the backlight reason... I've read billions of words on various palmtops - Apple Newtons and PocketPCs and eBookwise eReaders and iPod Touches - but I don't think I could live without a backlight!
