Alright, the whole Kindle thing is getting a little out of hand. I promise I won't say anything more about it (at least for today, *grin*). So, without further ado, here is the frontpage cover of next week's Newsweek which has an exclusive on Amazon's highly anticipated e-book reader (click to enlarge):

So it does look a lot like the advance pictures we saw of it from the FCC.

Well, at least it's white now... before (FCC) it had the same colors like my ancient Commodore C64.

Thanx for the larger version of the image. It does look a bit better than the FCC image.

But it does have one problem with the cover. Some people might think it has a color capable screen.

Whether intentional or not, I agree, it's misleading.

'Interesting' design, but won't a white case look grubby quite quickly?

Yep, it will get dirty quick.

That won't be a problem, though. I bet you $10 it will also be available in black.

Interesting page change bars. Hopefully not too easy to change (by accident).

I am still not clear on the connectivity. I assume it can be connected to a PC by USB. Hopefully it will not just work with wireless.

I read a lot of non-DRM stuff so if it does not support non-drm in a decent fashion, it would be no sale for me.

I guess we need to wait until some forum members have one in hand for a REAL unbiased review! That will happen quickly, I assume

I guess that depends on whether or not they go for sale in Europe...if I have to import it from the US then it might get tricky...
