Seattle-based Amazon, which makes the popular Kindle electronic reader, is also expected to release a tablet to rival Apple Inc's iPad in coming weeks, the Journal reported.

Why i am not seeing a good thing in it. I mean, nowadays the usual folk just sits at home and order everything online...My only hope is, that this wont damage the retail market. Long away are the times when i went into the shop and i bought HOMM V or AoE III. I still buy games retail, just online. But i dont get this digital stuff. Slow download speeds, sometimes paye even half on top of the price ( Steam in Europe ) and you get no box. Just files that forms a game. Just dont get it, i guess. Probably there is some hidden advantage to it.

This would be amazing if it happens. I haven't bought a Kindle yet because of the fact that I can just go to the library and get a book for free, read it, and give it back. I wouldn't mind paying a monthly all you can eat fee for books.
