‘Amazon today unveiled a new, larger version of its Kindle ebook reader, which is aimed at students – and heralded as a potential saviour by some parts of the newspaper industry.
The Kindle DX, which will go on sale in the US this summer for $489 (£325), has a bigger, 9.7in, screen, which can be used to display larger pages from academic textbooks and newsprint titles.’
Now… I can’t bear the idea of an electronic book.
- I like holding books with two hands
- I like folding the corners over (sorry)
- I like the smell of old penguin orangebacks
- I like lending books to friends without worrying about DRM (or whatever)
But what if this new reader can be used for sheet music? Could one write markings – dynamics/ fingerings etc – on the pages for future reference or would it be utterly un-interactive?
Would it stop me getting a hernia from lugging scores around? Can I have an A2 landscape version?
