Kindle: Fire or Fizzle?

Amazon's Kindle reading device launched today and Newsweek has a huge writeup on it. But why wouldn't you just buy an iPhone if it incorporated the same features? And why carry multiple devices? Plus, sorry, but the design looks clunky, especially compared to, um, the iPhone.

More on Amazon. Of course, if it gets more people reading, I'm all for it. Just can't see it competing when it costs more than an iPhone (400 smackeroos) with far less functionality. And I don't even own an iPhone.

Update: Forbes agrees in spades.
