saw a kindle today

The man who sat down next to me on the Metro this morning had a Kindle. While he really just wanted to read, he politely answered a couple of questions and let me hold it. It feels lighter than I expected, and the screen is reasonable clear and high contrast. It's also not as ugly as I thought. Each screen shows about 3 paragraphs of text (better than my Palm), but the entire screen flashes every time to navigate to a new page.

If anyone who has a Kindle is interested, he was reading Ewan McGregor's Long Way Round.
