New Kindle for College Texts to be unveiled Wednesday…

I’m jealous, I LOVE my first generation Kindle don’t get me wrong, but I want more memory and battery life too!

Here is the review of the first Kindle which I LOVE MADLY:

OMG!!!! ASU is getting them??!! What!! Okay I am going back for a PhD in…something…something needing a Kindle….

WSJ:

..new version of its Kindle e-book reader with a larger screen and other features designed to appeal to periodical and academic textbook publishers…

…Amazon has worked out a deal with several textbook publishers to make their materials available for the device, Mr. Gonick added. The new device will also feature a more fully functional Web browser, he said. The Kindle’s current model, which debuted in February, includes a Web browser that is classified as “experimental.”

Five other universities are involved in the Kindle project, according to people briefed on the matter. They are Pace, Princeton, Reed, Darden School at the University of Virginia, and Arizona State.

..A larger-screen Kindle would enable textbook publishers to better display the charts and graphs that aren’t particularly well suited to the current device, which has a screen that measures just six inches diagonally. But digitizing academic books could also hurt the thriving market for used textbooks on college campuses.

OH GODS HOW I HATED THE RAT FRAKKER UNIVERSITY TEXT PUBLISHERS AND THEIR EXTORTIONATE PRICES!!! 120.00 FOR A USED CHEM BOOK?!

Man these kids have it good…I want one dammit :0)
