Kindling My Interest

I see that Amazon have announced the next generation of the Kindle eBook reader, and its availability in the UK. I must admit that I am somewhat tempted by the Wi-Fi model at £109. Reading the pro and con comments on the Guardian story, I can sympathise with both points of view.

I think that means I’m going to sit on the fence until at least the next generation of devices, and possibly more importantly, of the business model that lurks behind them.

Update: I’m going to be sitting on the fence, whether I like it or not, because bloody Amazon.co.uk won’t (a) ship the Kindle to Europe and (b) won’t allow me to purchase Kindle ebooks from the UK store.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
