Wir sind gespannt!
John Biggs von CrunchGear ist skeptisch: Why is the Kindle so popular – or as popular as a limited audience e-reader can be? It’s connected to Amazon. Unless Amazon opens its ebook store to outside hardware, every text reader is just an e-ink tablet with some reading features (…) Is Txtr the answer? Maybe for some, but not for the mass market.
