Amazon announced today that it was launching the second version of its reading device - Kindle. I knew this was coming and that I might end up being the loser !
I got the first version of the Kindle back in August 2008 and fell in love with it. Being an avid reader, I just loved Kindle's one important capability - access to Amazon wirelessly. I could browse books and download them from Amazon's website very efficiently. Additionally, the availbility of magazines such as Forbes, Fortune, Time and Newsweek really upped the ante.
However, I had to tradeoff being an early adopter of the first generation device or buy it once it gets better in the second or the third generation. For once, I chose to be the first, and although I feel like a loser, I am still happy I am the first loser!
