Online retailer Amazon.com unveiled a slimmer version of its Kindle digital book reader on Monday, with more storage and faster page turns.

Reuters’ Franklin Paul had a chance to see the new unit in action, as Laura Porco, Director, Kindle Books, demos its text-to-speech and buy on the fly features.

I like how there’s competition now, like from the Plastic Logic reader and Sony’s product. At least we have more options this time around.

the Kindle reminds me of something i saw in an old school Star Trek episode, which is a good selling point… it’s a bit expensive tho
