From UW site:

In Fall 2009, each incoming University of Washington Computer Science & Engineering graduate student will receive a Kindle DX, Amazon’s latest wireless reading device, to use in place of traditional printed textbooks and research papers in their first-year graduate courses. The students also will receive textbooks and other required reading materials free of charge for the Kindle DX.

It’s too late for application now. Anyone who knows someone who can give me a special referral to get there in time?

And a pro’s blog has some stunning pictures and praise.

Just a few spec highlights that I can understand:

  • 21MP, full frame
  • 1080p H.264 (max clip length 12min)
  • ISO 100 – 6400 (expandable to 50-25600)
  • 3.9fps (unlimited jpg)
  • 3″ VGA Live View LCD
  • silent mode

Wouldn’t it be a wonderful world if the financial industry isn’t biting the dust?
