Amazon to Unveil E-book Reader in October
The New York Times reported that Amazon.com will unveil the Kindle, an electronic book reader, next month. According to the report, the Kindle will be priced at $400 to $500 and will wirelessly connect to an e-book store on Amazon’s Web site––a significant advancement over older e-book devices, which must be connected to a computer to download books or articles. The device also will feature a Web browser and a keyboard for note-taking. Amazon would not comment on the Kindle, per the Times article.
