Taking a Match to Kindle

With all the smaller, multi-use devices out there, I just don't see a reason to spend $399 on a 10.3 ounce Kindle.

I want fewer devices, not more.

In most cases, I don't want to read off a screen. I do that too much as it is. The only reason I'd consider it would be if it saved some weight when I'm traveling, and it doesn't (besides, I'm doing less traveling these days).

While reducing paper is a noble cause, I just don't see enough of a benefit to understand how Kindle can possibly succeed.

What do you think?
