You can get minidigital lowres thingies for $14.00 a pop that clip to a keychain.
Or you could bribe someone with Karma!

C'mon let loose the journalist in you!

Anyone have a spare invisibility cloak?

Actually, that comment was most directly inspired by a recent Dark Angel rerun.

I don't want Charlie to get in trouble sneaking around the hallways at Amazon. He's got too many books (and blog entries) left to write.

But if you can convince them to show you the Kindle, informally, perhaps, go for it!

I guess they'll do an official unveiling IF they plan to release it anytime soon.
I sent a mail to amazon.de, but (very unusually for amazon) they did not reply at all.
Last time I asked them about ebooks about a year ago they sent a reply saying that they can't really comment, but this time they just ignored me.
Either their support is getting worse, or they were told not to answer any question relating to the Kindle and/or ebooks...
Sad really, because I always liked amazon.de a lot, not least because they were very responsive and had extremely good customer support...let's hope that has not changed.

So October 15 is very near... anyone care to make any predictions?

1. Will it still be released on October 15?
2. What will the price be? NY Times says USD 400 to 500.

I think mainly that it is the unveiling that should be made on the 15th, not the sales launch. Take as an example the Asus EEE, it will probably be the same. My reason for thinking this way is that you can keep things under wrap during conception stages but when approaching manufacturing, with all the partners involved, things are much harder to keep secret. A launch is much easyer between those two stages.

Other than the bits and pieces I've dug up, no news (yet).

I think we can call it a day...in germany it's long past closing hours and we certainly won't see any Kindle in europe today...

Hey is this going to be one of those situations where NatCh and the gang drop a message in the next few days detailing all the private meetings they have been having with the Amazon people and show us all the pics and specs.

Then they go on to mention how they have known about it for three weeks but due to NDA they couldn't tell us?!?!

I doubt it. They all sounded thrilled about the trademark stuff I found.

Also, I doubt that Alexander would go to the Frankfurt book fair if he already knew the details on the Kindle. Now, if he learned the details there, that's different.

Good one! I just wish they could, MR is not that well known to the industry. Must be the logo.

I can tell you this. I'm not under NDA with Amazon about the Kindle. Wish I was!

If anyone from the Kindle team is reading this and wants to arrange for some publicity at rollout by providing a sample device and information, I'm available. Sounds to me like a win-win situation for both Amazon and the MobileRead community! ;-)

I thought about not replying, or just replying "no comment" ... but I just can't do that to y'all. So I'll join Bob in admitting a lack of Amazonion/Kindle-oid NDA upon me at the moment. I too wish it weren't so, and I also would be willing to bear that burden -- for the good of MobileRead, of course -- if it should come about at some future time.

Of course, part of the reason we're not could have something to do with posting all that leaked FCC info last year.
