Amazon Kindle to launch in the UK

Lots of coverage in the media this week on the imminent launch (potentially) of the Amazon Kindle in the UK later this year. Its hugely popular on the other side of the pond - analysts put sales of the original Kindle as high as 380,000 as it becomes the Apple "iPod of the book world."

The Sunday Times was positively effusive in its coverage , saying that "Now another technology that has been around for 20 years may finally go mainstream — the e-book."

In addition to the Kindle, Sony's much heralded ebook reader is also set to launch through Waterstones, with a price point of £199.
