Specs on the new Amazon Kindle

While I like the idea of the Kindle what is to stop people from just upping the ante and snagging an I-Pad? While the I-Pad is not all that amazing I have to figure that after you think about spending money for a top of the line Kindle you can get either a Droid X or some other device that lets you read on it, just minus the convenience of a larger book library.

Tough call. Now if only comic book companies would adapt either the I-Pad or Kindle I would be all over that.
