Amazon to Launch New version of Amazon Kindle and Move Kindle Into The Textbook Arena!

Amazon is working on unveiling a new version of amazon Kindle  with a larger screen and other features designed to appeal to textook publishers.

The new device will also feature a more fully functional Web browser as opposed to the “experimental” browser which exist on the current model.

Starting  this fall, students at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland will be given large-screen Kindles with chemistry, computer science and a freshman seminar  textbooks already installed.

The university will then compare the  experiences of students with that of those who use  traditional textbooks.

Five other universities: Pace, Princeton, Reed, Darden School at the University of Virginia, and Arizona State are also involved in the project.

Amazon is also working out a deal with several textbook publishers to make their materials available for the  “new” device.

stay tuned for updates…
