New Kindle Spotted

There were rumors this summer that a new Kindle would be released in October/November. Then Amazon doused that rumor. Now we have pictures of a slightly less fugly, but still no Sony, NEW Kindle. (note to Amazon, hire a new designer, seriously).

Sony unveiled it’s newest device, the PRS 700, complete with a touchscreen and integrated front light (click link for picture).   It’s like a battle between form and function.   Want wireless, got to go with Kindle. What style and an integrated front light, then Sony is your choice.

Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    Yeah, it’s definitely not as ugly as the first Kindle, but it still looks really clunky to me.

    Wireless is not a selling point for me.

    My Kindle is supposed to arrive today, so I’m going to be royally PISSED OFF if the new generation is actually coming out. I’ll pack that sucker right back up and send it back.
