But Dennis McCunney is. Sniff.
Well, fine, out of spite and cake-deprivation, I’ll just say, Kindle DX looks to announce a trial program with a few universities, and we’ll have to wait and see what other toys are in the device, aside from an internal .pdf viewer.
Now, education is the holy grail of ebooks, and Amazon’s announcing itself to be in the lead, but that market is still getting started (unlike “Home Ebooks,” the market for which is essentially over.)
So while Amazon’s got a head start, maybe it’s my frosting envy, but maybe, just maybe, Windows Netbooks with PixelQi screens are coming soon, and some other partnerships will be announced w/ Microsoft,* and this is only the first salvo.
In either case, expect glowing newspaper reports!
I’m going to the bakery.
*Actually, I bought that MSI Wind for a reason beyond lightening my load on short trips. Speculating, but, 94% of all netbooks now run XP…
