I wonder what criteria they used for ordering the units? (And why the Kindle battery life is listed as "1 day"?)

I did notice that MobileRead was listed as one of the sources for the matrix. Sweet.

Looking at the comments that people left a lot of them like either their Palm, a laptop, a cellphone, and a computer to read their books. Many of them have never seen an e-ink device so they make comments that they felt were educated, but in reality they have no idea, which is too bad.

One thing I think the Kindle has done is that it definitely brought awareness of e-ink and ebooks to the general masses. There are articles being written from sources I didn't think really cared about such specialized tools. As I'm always saying, only good things will happen now that Kindle is out...unless, of course DRM becomes the rule because of it.

Don't forget that it has to have a telepathic user interface, and must whiten your teeth while you sleep! (Props to Scott Adams of Dilbert fame, for that addition)
