Amazon’s Kindle Leaks from FCC

Not surprising that it leaked, but I wonder, what is Amazon doing that other ebook readers have tried to do in the past?AA Is it a matter of selection?


Oh, come now, like you thought the world’s largest book retailer (online) — which just started peddling digital video under the Unbox brand — wasn’t going to go head to head with Sony’s Reader on an e-book device and service? Say hello to the Amazon Kindle, their take on a book reader device that comes equipped with a 6-inch 800 x 600 display (which we can only assume is e-ink), 256MB internal storage, smallish two-thumb keyboard cursor bar, scroll wheel, standard mini USB port, 3.5mm headphone jack, SD slot, and get this: EV-DO data! (Don’t believe us? The spec sheet is after the break. Why do you think it was in the FCC?) The user manual also outlines the Kindle Store on Amazon (though doesn’t spec out too many details), but we’re a little less concerned with how we’re getting these supposed e-books right now, and a little more curious about the price and launch. C’mon Amazon, we’ve got the dirt, now how’s about you fill in the details? Engadget

You know how many freaking books I could buy for 400-some-odd dollars?
