Another game changer possibility: IAC Prodigy

Here is a demo of a nice device which is trying to be a Swiss Army Reader Device:

Interesting and can certainly give the Kindle a real challenger because is it includes all the connectivity features possible besting the Kindle's CDMA only PLUS a touch screen. So it bears watching for those who like wireless access. For me I already have a MBB service who support a BYOD model. I only use the service as a backup for my DSL so, why not have them add a reader device to the account at no extra cost to me?

Not saying this is a keep for sure, but it certainly might be worth following.

Here Here!! Bring on all the competitors even if half of them only make it a couple years. Enough competition and the prices have to go down. But I'd settle for a higher powered reader at current prices. And maybe a whiter white as well.

Ok, this is totally off on a tangent, but thank you for not calling it a "Kindle Killer". I am *really* sick of that phrase being used about every new device that comes out.
