I am never the first one to jump on the gadget bandwagon. I was not the first to buy an iPod, the iPod I do have must be four years old by now and doesn’t do color, photos or video, and I am not likely to buy an iPhone. But the Amazon Kindle e-Book Reader is definitely a gadget I want! I rarely fall for something the moment I see it but I did this time.
It’s small. It holds 200 books or something. I can read all I want, where I want, and not clutter my nightstand, my purse or my bookshelves! It requires no computer and interfaces to download like a cell phone. I am so sold!
But should I buy it? Will it work in Norway? It’s a bit pricy, but the dollar is at an all-time low compared to the Norwegian krone, so now’s a good time to buy.
I think that first I need to finish reading all the information on the explanatory page. I’ve seen only the little introductory video so far. Oh, and I have to wipe the drool off my keyboard.
UPDATE: Time to let you guys know how I heard of the Kindle. It also addresses some of the criticism showing up in my comments.
