There are maybe a hundred seats (and people are still filing in), so we'll be getting started here in just a few.

Too late, the Kindle is already old news. Good Morning America has a stary this morning on the Kindle, so the cat is out of the bag already.

When can mobileread get one and review it! This thing really looks like a mobile read killer app.

I feel your pain, Roland.

Did you see this:

"We archive your books in the cloud. If you ever lose a book, you can just redownload it again, it doesn't cost anything. If you want to clear out space on your Kindle knowing they're secure on the server, and in 60 seconds you can get it back again.
I don't think everyone is going to be happy to have his purchased books stored @ Amazon's rather than on your own computer.

An interesting tidbit:
"The side-selector appears to be LCD-based, not e-ink based. "
That's a pretty clever solution to the E-Ink refresh problem.
