The Amazon Kindle has a distinct edge over the other two eBook readers in terms of hardware, as it's an all-in-one device with WiFi, 3G and a QWERTY keyboard. However, we have heavy reservations about the proprietary file format and the fact that...60

I have to admit that when I first heard about Amazon’s latest wireless reading device, the Kindle 2, I was convinced that no one in their right mind would ever buy it; let alone pay $259.00 US for it! But knowing how much I love to read, my...85
