I Want the Amazon Kindle 2
I love gadgets. The Amazon Kindle 2 looks like a really nice gadget for those who enjoy reading. It's so nice to have an illuminated screen so that you don't have to deal with shadows on the page. Also, it's so thin and light. No pages flapping around in the wind. It just seems like a great e-book. Now if only the price could be reduced...
I think healthcare providers will eventually rely on e-books and tablets more and more. As health information gets published online, paper textbooks will become so obsolete that they will end up in museums and archive rooms. As e-book readers and other formats gain popularity, we will see a huge increase in demand and a significant reduction in price. Sony's Digital Book and Amazon's Kindle 2 are both really nice, but they are still niche devices for those who can afford to spend a few hundred dollars on a luxury gadget.
