I was worried that I was going to have to write something about Amazon’s slew of announcements. Thank Satan for Harry Marks at Curious Rat. His thoughts largely echo mine. The key point:
Amazon is clear about its intentions - it doesn’t want to get into tablet computing, it wants its devices to be hubs for media and Amazon’s own services. Stream movies, read books and listen to music all on your Amazon Kindle Fire using Amazon’s services. If you’re only interested in reading, pick up a new eInk Kindle while you’re also buying a DVD — they’re so cheap, Kindles really are impulse buys now.
