Oh dear. Just three days after it launched, the Amazon Kindle e-book reader has been slated across the internet, and even on its very own sale page on the Amazon store. Seems their reader-submitted reviews have turned around and bitten them on their backsides.
Just 2.5/5 stars, for the $399 device which has seen 503 Amazon users leaving their thoughts on the page, with at the time of writing this – 2351hrs on Wednesday night – the majority of people (180) giving it just one star. As you’d expect, one reviewer did ask the question “why not just get an iPhone????????” (obsessively-used question marks reviewer’s own), but with reports the e-book reader sold out in 5.5hours, not everyone feels the same way obviously.
Time to start censoring reviews now, Amazon?
