A Kindle – finally!

I forgot to mention that I finally saw a Kindle at the recent Web 2.0 for libraries workshop which I attended earlier in the week.  It was one of the several “gadgets” (as we like to say here in Ghana) on display.   I wish I could have really looked at even more but others were clamouring also to see it.  It did look pretty slim and nifty…

Unfortunately you can only buy it in the US at the moment, though I gather it should be available in Europe fairly soon.

Hmmm…  should I consider buying one of these on my next US visit?
