I have been a huge believer in the power of ebooks for a long time. Now, Amazon has released the Kindle.

The technology is very cool, and it looks like it’s been well-implemented.

However, it’s got to be the ugliest piece of hardware I’ve ever seen.

If you’re interested, it’s worth reading the customer reviews. And watching the video.

I’d push my wife to get it for me as a Christmas gift (even if it didn’t have a huge amount of content, the gadget pull might be strong enough), but its so ugly that the “tech-lust” factor is kind of ruined.

Just compare the look of the ungainly Kindle to the sleek Sony Reader:



Curious to know your thoughts.
