That is TOO funny. When I saw the new model I was WTF. Bigger??? How about CHEAPER.

Hilarious! Now all Amazon needs is to give us sharable files and external archivability, and they'll almost have books! Again. Wait...why are they doing this again?

This was great. Yes, bigger is better, Not! I just wish that Kendle was universally designed so that the visually impaired can use it. I am hoping that Apple comes out with something that will revolutionary that is universally designed.

I agree that the Kendle need to come down in price but I want a color screen then it would be worth the $$'s!

This video rocks!

I'd consider getting one if they were willing to ship outside the US!

I've had a Kindle for over a year now and I love it but this video is truly hilarious. I understand why Amazon came up with the larger model (text books, etc) but it was still a parody-ready move.

I still refuse to buy a Kindle...I too would rather read a book

I would consider getting one but the thing is I already have so many books that, if I bought one, it's not like I would all of a sudden not have to carry books around with me anymore. And to think of the cost of buying all those books (the ones that are even available) just to put on the Kindle on top of the already outrageous price of the unit itself keeps me away.

The DX is actually a step towards more interesting for me...but limits and price are still barriers. I read ebooks regularly, but I do it on my PDA that I'm carrying to do (lots of) other things on. Having to carry a separate device just to read on...no, not yet. The eInk screen is a lure, though, and a bigger screen would be great. If they come out with color...well, maybe.

I have a Kindle I and, while I use it, I do so selectively. There are some books Ijust don't want on it, while there are others, particularly classics (which are free) that I like having handy. This is especially convenient when traveling--loaded with books, but almost nothing to carry.

Laying in bed last night, I finished my current book but I wasn't ready for sleep and I didn't want to read what I had handy. I connected to the kindle store aand within the minute, I was reading a book of my choice. I love my kindle. I agree the new one looks too big and I'd like to share my books and cant. Nothing is perfect.

Hilarious. The voice-over voice is just perfect, too.

I can see how that would be helpful for that situation, med humanities. I think that's the only reason I would get a Kindle, if I did a lot of traveling, especially long distance.

I love my Kindle. I travel a great deal and so it is very handy and convenient. I still treasure my home library, but the Kindle has its place for pleasure reading while traveling.
