Online retail giant Amazon.com will unveil its highly anticipated electronic-book reader on Monday in New York, an industry source tells CNET. In the works for more than a year, the Kindle is equipped with a Wi-Fi connection that taps into an Amazon e-book store, which users can access to buy new electronic books.
Primarily geared toward business travelers, it also includes a feature to download digital editions of the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. The device is expected to cost $399. So far, e-books haven't caught on the way some had predicted. Sony unveiled the second edition of its $300 Sony Reader device in October. The original, released in September 2006, was a bust.
