Superize My Kindle!
Those who wished the Kindle screen was a little bigger to make it easier to read newspapers and magazines may be getting their wish this week. According to Gizmondo and All Things Digital, Amazon is prepared to announce “…a new large-format device that’s optimized for reading newspapers and magazines.”
To me, one of the appealing things about the Kindle is its small size. Is there really a market for a Kindle with an extra large screen?
Personally, I think this is a bold move on Amazon’s part. In a time where everyone is trying to make the smallest, thinnest, lightest gadget, they are taking a different route to mimic the large feel of a magazine or newspaper. It’ll be interesting to see how this new, larger Kindle is accepted. It’ll be even more interesting to see how grandpa tries to roll it up to fit it inside his robe.
