Amazon E Ink reader?

Good new everyone!

I Just found this on Engadget.com:

It Looks like Amazon is going for the eink front. With a major player like this, the whole ebook process could very well pick up quite a bit of speed.
The rather odd-looking device is named "Kindle" and seems to have all the necessary features onboard. details are still a bit sketchy, but our valued member DHer has found a link to the FCC approval and the manual, so at least some information is already available.
This new player on the ever-growing ebook market also includes some nifty features like a cover and a reading lamp right out of the box if the manual is to be believed!

Now I guess the big questions are "WHEN" and "HOW MUCH"!

Edit: While the information seemed to have been pulled from FCC, you can still find the manual in this thread
