This is an upcoming product that is trying to exist parallel to the Amazon Kindle, but without trying to make itself too big a target for Amazon to crush it. The device doesn’t have a name yet, and so far it looks promising:
- It’s as big as a sheet of paper
- Battery time measured in days, not hours
- Touch sensitive screen
- Open formats
- Very thin and light
- Sturdy screen
If they can pull it off, it will bring competition to the Kindle, even if only in mindshare, which is always a good thing for us consumers.
