Big-Screen Amazon Kindle to be Launched Next WeekAdd a plus one if you want to recommend this post to your network.
Guess all those rumors about a new Kindle with a bigger screen wasn’t just the result of a slow news day. On Wednesday next week, May 13, Amazon is launching a new big-screen Amazon Kindle which according to the New York Times is designed for reading magazines, newspapers, and possibly even textbooks. Although newspapers subscriptions can already be viewed on the Kindle through its integrated 3G wireless connection, I guess this Kindle deals exclusively with print media. I wonder if they’re doing this as a response to flagging print publications who want a device that will somehow up their circulation rates. But if people in the US are already having a hard enough time trying to cover their basic necessities, wouldn’t it be more cost effective to just buy a newspaper than pay $200 for a digital newspaper reader?
