The Kindle will have the same impact on books as the Zune had on digital music - negligible to none. People that like books will still buy hard copies, preferring them to an electronic device. And geeks won't pay the silly prices being asked to subscribe to digital content (e.g. a few blogs - minus the comments).
I'm not anti-Kindle, I'm just anti this implementation, and waiting for the iKindle (an iPod touch with a 10 inch screen).


I'd agree - Kindle isn't a killer app here (e-paper probably is) and the pricing structure is foolish (and will be dropped I'd predict). It's significant because it's Amazon, so I think it's another tiny step, but not as significant as the Levy article suggests.
