…Amazon’s Kindle is a new kind of eBook?

Newsweek - Amazon: Reinventing The BookWith the Kindle, Amazon hopes to revolutionize (and digitize) the book.

Specs?

Six inch E-Ink screen, EV-DO “Whispernet”, 60 second downloads, 30 hours of battery life, and two hour recharges.

Cost?

The device itself will go for $399, while books will be $9.99. (Learn anything from Apple’s iTunes pricing, Amazon?)

Will this be the device that finally brings eBooks to the masses?

Only time will tell, but it at least seems like a good start.
