Most readers nowadays use Amazon Kindle ebooks instead of printed. The product is wireless and allows you to access Amazon’s ebook store wirelessly. It also allows you to purchase books from there store, which holds more than 88,000. Unfortunately, the product can only hold about 200 titles.
Firstly, the reason I don’t think this product will be successfully – or any similar future product, for that matter – is because of the nature of it. I just don’t see typical readers buying a product to read their books on. There is something unique about reading a book, holding it and turning the pages. Carrying a screen around won’t change that. Secondly, it’s monstrously overpriced. The asking price for this product is $400. I can’t see anyone other than the rich or the foolish purchasing this product.
The second issue I have with this product is simply the look. The design is horrible; it looks like a low-end product from the 90s. The awkward keypad and bulky, uncreative design put a damper on a good concept. I’m sure amazon will keep trying, but for now I think this product is anything but revolutionary (as Amazon claims it is).
