Kindle collected reviews

Lots of Kindle reviews these days, and we should try to pick out the best of them.

So I started a new Wiki entry listing various recent Kindle reviews in no particular order ordered by date of entry. Feel free to expand or edit.

I just read the Detroit News one. It's bad enough that most of the reviewers on Amazon haven't touched one, now we have journalists writing reviews that haven't touched one either.

I agree. It's hard to justify writing a review on a device that uses new technology (E Ink) without actually having it tried out first.

Newly added reviews:

* Amazon Kindle (Laptop Magazine)
* Kindled, but Not Enlightened (Washington Post)
* Kindling an interest? (Los Angeles Times)

Post Pans the Kindle

Bob Pegoraro panned the Kindle in today's Post (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...120502611.html).

I got the impression he'd decided on the review before he got his hands on one. Something you notice in the Post a lot.

I love my Kindle and I think the Post's review is very accurate about the flaws and helpful for those on the fence -- they can decide if the flaws he lists are dealbreakers or not.

One major oddity, though. His Kindle battery ran out and he was very confused when the eInk screen was "stuck" on a page (normal expected behavior for eInk). But, Amazon support didn't recognize the issue when he called and suggested he return it (!). A terrible customer support response.
