Dan Provost on the rumored Amazon tablet:
It wouldn’t play video, or graphically complex games. That’s not the point though. The point is to create a wonderful reading device, for ALL reading, not just books. It creates an interesting alternative for people who use an iPad primarily for reading. And I’d imagine many people would be happy to buy this new Kindle in addition to an iPad, as many already do with the current Kindle.
I love this idea. My time with the iPad has taught me that it’s the best reading device. I don’t necessarily mean books since I haven’t tried to read a book on it yet, but rather reading RSS, Twitter and other articles on the web. Count me as interested in this kind of thing.
