I'm surprised that your friends were able to give such a definitive answer about sales last summer, given that it only went on sale in late August.

I was there, my friend. Summer ends in September. It was £139. I even remarked to my wife when I was there how odd that it was the same price there in pounds as it was here in dollars. I don't know what the discrepancy is, but I remember it pretty well, as I saw it all over.

Where is here?

I see a lot of Kindles in Philly.

I will def look into the Amazon tablet. If it is not what I want, I will keep my Kindle.

Great. Amazon's got Tablet Fever. Is it because we are an aliterate society? Or is Amazon trying to follow Apple's lead on digital content delivery?

My location says NYC, and I was responding to a post from NYC.

Well, Amazon was one of the first big companies to sell digital books with their own reader. They sell digital music, Movies, Tv shows and music videos.

It makes sense for them to move this way. They probably have the best chance of anyone to compete with Apple on this.
