Will the Amazon Kindle Be the Next ‘Must-Have’ Technology?

Amazon has just introduced a new e-reader called the “Kindle,” and it looks like a fantastic piece of technology. The company must have high hopes for the Kindle — today, when you type “,” into your browser, you get a letter from Jeff Bezos touting the new product.

I have to say that it looks quite enticing. Amazon also provides a very persuasive video demonstration — in addition to being a great piece of marketing, it reveals that the folks at Amazon have excellent taste in non-fiction.

I’ve never actually read an e-book (after all, I am hopelessly behind when it comes to technology), but this new development is encouraging me to finally try. I would be interested to hear from readers who have tried both the Sony Reader and the Amazon Kindle as to which they prefer.
