This thing is pretty cool, but not everyone reads books. it needs more. First off, it has a huge +.... its big. you can have a qwerty keyboard, a touchscreen, and some powerful insides, and no one can b*tch about it not fitting in your pocket, because its not supposed to. If you look at the kindle 2, it has just about the same specs/features as the iphone. It has an internet connection (not the fastest, but free) a screen (no color, but its for reading books), a speaker, flash memory (a small amount), etc... as for the processor... Kindle 2 is 532mhz, the ipod touch 2g's is 523, iphone 3g's is 412. Point here is, why doesn't the kindle, a device about 4 times the size of the iphone, take advantage of its size and add some more features? what additional features do you think would make you want to buy the kindle?
