Arggh! Technology Advances

Just after I was wowed by the iPad, Amazon comes out with a better and cheaper DX.

You can read about it here.

It will be a couple of months before I can save enough to buy either one so I guess I will see where things stand then.

One thing I forgot is that there is a iPad app for reading your Kindle Books so I won't lose anything by switching. In fact if it anything like my Kindle for the PC the books illos will automatically be of better quality.

I'm waiting for a 10"+ Android 2.2 tablet. Waiting... and waiting...

Would I be able to properly display a copy of Majestic Wilderlands or ICONS or somesuch properly on the new Kindle, do you know?

The long battery life enjoyed by the Kindles is why I didn't regret my Kindle DX purchase in the slightest when the iPad was announced a few months later.

The iPad reportedly has a great battery life, but the difference between 6-10 hours and 10-14 days is enormous in terms of usage patterns.

I've also found the Kindle screen to be nicer for casual, immersive reading.
