Friends at Engadget turned up an Amazon E-book reader to go head to head with Sony's own reader. The fellas slashed their way through the FCC's site, and revealed that the device has a six-inch, 800 by 600 pixel display, 256MB of RAM, a keyboard, scroll wheel, mini USB port. There's also a headphone jack, which we guess is for audiobooks. The real find? EV-DO cellular data, probably there for downloading titles through the ether. Like all saucy and unofficial unveilings, this one opens up a bigger question: What service is Amazon going to announce to deliver these heaven sent e-books? Another image, after the jump.
Crap aesthetics aside, if someone handed one to me I wouldn't reject it. Having said that, I'd really prefer having one with fewer buttons; perhaps an on-screen keyboard. Unless this thing has a word-processor in it, it doesn't need its own keyboard.
