Amazon taking on Newspapers – Will Kindle have a Bigger Brother ?

leave a comment »

“Newspapers are dying”  – I think I am hearing this nearly as often as “Good morning”. In the world of internet and NewS Google it is quite natural that people are abandoning traditional newspapers and switching to more up-to-date media. Personally I am taking newspapers only to read some longer op-ed article or review – things that are hardly found  but what more important  – uncomfortable to read on the screen.

Plastic Solution has it's own idea of newspapers e-reader. Would Big Kindle look alike? We shall get know in coming days

So it is not a surprise that FINALLY someone has (or so it is said) to combine dailies (or rather their titles) and internet. As New York Times writes, that someone is Amazon.com.  With a successful experience with Kindle Amazon is claimed to launch a bigger e-reader which is developed mainly for reading newspapers and magazines. For that reason it would have a bigger screen, but despite that fact it would be as thin as a A4 notepad.

NYT is saying that the launch of Kindle’s Bigger Bro could take place as soon as this week. Today is Monday so we shall quickly now if Bezos is hiding something in his pocket.
