I am waiting for my Kindle to arrive … I wasn’t that speedy to pre-order, so it looks like it’s early September for me. What I like about the business model for Kindle is that it has no monthly subscription and is only costing me £149 + postage.
Actually, I like more than that – I like, for example, that I can cram it full of pdfs so that I don’t have to literally carry my work around. I like that it isn’t just a reader, I can put music on it and all sorts.
In fact, it’s a closet media device, isn’t it.
And then at the weekend apple opened that new store in Covent Garden, with the oak tables, exposed brickwork and glass everywhere. So I went in.
For the first time I actually had an iPad in my little paws. Wow, what a thing of beauty!
So now I have a real dilema. My lovely Kindle will arrive soon … could I also have an iPad?
Or (and leaving Utah to one side) is having a Kindle and an iPad a bit like bigamy? But you know, I really *do* love you both.
