The Amazon Kindle

kindle.jpgToday Amazon announced their long awaited (and worst kept secret) digital book reader, called Kindle. It’s a different approach than other digital book readers offerings from Sony and other manufacturers because it represents a different approach to content delivery and management

Taking a page from Apple’s playbook, Amazon concentrated on an experience of seamless content organization, purchasing and delivery. With a built in high-speed data modem, Kindle owners can have their content choice delivered over the air within minutes of purchasing. There is no computer to device sync required which eliminates compatibility and user frustration issues.

The content offering may be more limited than physical offerings, but it’s a start. You can also subscribe to daily newspapers and blogs. While everything has a purchase or monthly subscription fee, there are no monthly service or wiress usage fees.

The price tag may be a bit high, but its a fresh approach to an industry that has seen more failures than successes.
