Amazon Kindle - Redefining the Book?

Amazon believes they have redefined the book. Later today they are expected to unveil their own-brand of e-book reader hardware and associated service.

e-book readers are small devices that allow you to read e-books in a much more convenient fashion than on a computer screen.

In a very similar way to how Apple's iPod and iTunes music store work together for music, the Amazon Kindle eBook reader and service will allow you to purchase books using a wireless connection and read them instantly.

They are not the first to bring out an e-book reader, Sony has had a product out for a while now, but Amazon appear to have the service to back up the hardware.

I don't think that regular books are going away any time soon but it's still interesting to see these products finally becoming mainstream.
