Amazon just brought out a new eBook reader called “Kindle“. It looks pretty cool, but I have one question: “Where can I go to try one of these out before I fork over $399 for one of them?”
I have a real problem with buying a new technology item (especially one where the form factor is as critical as an eBook reader) without actually having one in my hand before I purchase it. So I’m sitting here wondering which retailers carry the Kindle. For some strange reason, I can’t seem to find it on Amazon’s web site :).
Somehow I think that once again, I’m going to be waiting until one of my co-workers buys one before I can play with it.
See, there ARE some things that brick&mortar stores do better than electronic retailers – they let you touch the merchandise before you buy it.
