The Wall Street Journal says that Amazon is set to unveil its long awaited e book reader today in New York.
Industry speculation about the new Amazon device, reportedly named "Kindle," has occurred for the past year. Amazon has been preparing its digital book store for the launch of the new device by making inactive links to electronic books called "Kindle" editions available on the product pages of various books.
The Kindle device will connect users to Amazon's e-book store through a built-in Wi-Fi connection, and will likely retail for $399, according to reports.
It's not clear yet if/when this reader will be available in the UK.
