Internet & Networking Other than the low price (only $199?!) and the fact that Google is getting absolutely nothing out of Amazon's use of Android, I couldn't really bring myself to caring too much about the Kindle Fire (Apple and/or Microsoft patent lawsuit in 3... 2... 1), but there is one aspect that intrigued me - Amazon's beefing up of what at its core is Opera Mini.

"The thing" being e-readers, of course... I'm so tired...

Check out iriver Story HD. Not exactly A4, but apparently has a much better PDF reader that can reflow text. They also slash the price from 139 to 99 for the period until Oct 15th.

Thanks for the reference, didn't know about this device ! However, after looking around a bit and trying to print A4 documents in A5 format to see how it would look like (I don't trust automated reflow), I think I'll still wait for cheaper A4 readers, should they come one day...

(I've found some from other manufacturers, but they are also priced in the 250€-300€ range)
