Is Amazon Badmouthing Sony through a Sock?

Kindletalk.com is a new website for Kindle users. It’s an Amazon owned site per the whois data.logo1.gif The first question posted by an “admin” is “The Sony readers are everywhere but have not had much success. The Kindle is more expensive but has many more feautures[sic], the most important one being wireless access to the books. Has anyone spent much time with the Sony reader? If so why do you think that it is not successful?”

Surely Amazon has more confidence in its success that badmouthing Sony right out of the gate?

    Kindletalk.com is neither owned by nor affiliated with Amazon.com. We utilize Amazon’s EC2 service to host our forums, which may explain why some users thought we were connected in some way with Amazon.

    Kindletalk.com exists simply as an un-biased online community for Kindle users.

    Sounds a bit, I dunno, biased to me.

    Given that it went on sales yesterday I have trouble seeing why a grassroots effort would already be dissing the opposition.
