Australian newspapers reject the Amazon kindle


That is the good news as this should shelter us from the Amazon kindle for a short time.

This is only a delay as the race is on by Australian newspapers to decide on an e-reader. Their favourite now is the Sony e-reader.

It is an excellent choice for an e-reader. I know a friend who has one. It is a nice stylish unit. It is the size of a standard paperback. I find it well-thought-out. It is cheaper than the kindle. Most important is it open for venders to use. Which is a big plus as no Australian newspaper wants to share profits with Amazon.

I would not be surprised if the sony e-reader is what Australians adopt.
