People... please do not comment on the Kindle like you know something for a fact when you are just guessing.
So, the Amazon Kindle sucks. I'm guessing the screen is the same as the Sony Reader and all the other devices on the market right now.
Saying the Kindle is not good because you are guessing to totally the wrong thing to say. If you don't know, ask. Don't just assume something and then make disparaging comments based on a possibly faulty assumption. This will just cause the forum to sink to the same level as most of the comments about the Kindle on Amazon.com. Most of them are based on total nonsense from people that have no idea what it is they are saying. The Kindle, 505, and Gen3 are all designed primarily for reading books. That they will do very well. But to go half-cocked on no real information is wrong. So please do not do it.
