Kindle 3 Arrived Today

My new Kindle 3 arrived today. I love new toys so I'd been eager for it to arrive. They're now taking orders for delivery in mid-September so I'm glad I ordered early.

Asides

  • Aiptek has announced a color eReader geared toward children called the Storybook inColor. It will play mp3 audio in association with books and has an 8-inch TFT LCD display. #
  • Ukrainian PocketBook has announced two new eReaders - the Pocketbook 901 with a 9.7-inch basic eReader with e-ink display but no wifi or touchscreen. #
  • iRex Technologies, maker of the iRex ereader, filed for bankruptcy protection in the Netherlands. It's unknown yet whether they will be continuing production or not. #
  • Interead has announced they will have their first COOL-ER ereader with wifi and a touch screen out in September. The price point is supposed to be under $249. Read more here. #
  • Amazon apparently delayed the full release of the Kindle's version 2.5 software in order to make some additional adjustments from early user feedback. They don't have any information on new released dates though. Amazon's information is available here. You can read enGadget's article on it here. I'm disappointed - I really wanted the locking feature and the new font sizes. #
