Jeff Bezos introduces the Amazon Kindle, a portable e-reader device. The first generation Kindle has a 6-inch screen and can store 250MB of memory, which is expandable by a SD card. The Kindle sells for $399. It has free wireless cellular broadband from Sprint so readers can browse the web or download e-book purchases. The device can hold up to 200 books. Bezos says:
Anyone who is reading two, three, four books at the same time should have one of these.
