So did I mean Sony.

I'm quite confident that Sony knew that Amazon was working on the Kindle, but as to how much warning of the actual launch date they had, I wouldn't like to guess. I do remember some rather vehement pronouncements in late October that Amazon couldn't be planning to launch before Christmas because they hadn't done any pre-launch marketing stuff.

I suppose it would be self-promoting of me to note that my suggestion proved out that all Amazon really had to do was put it on their own front page to produce an instantaneous marketing blitz, so I won't do that.
