In essence, this prototype seems to be everything the Kindle should be, but isnt. I, for one, will be holding off paying the stated US$489.00 for a Kindle DX, whenever they become available outside the US, until I see the next generation dual screen, and touchscreen laptops which are likely to be available from 2010.
They seem poised to be much better e-book readers than what the Kindle DX offers, but time may prove me wrong.
