Yesterday at a Wired conference, Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos indicated what direction the Kindle device and the Kindle book store may be taking. Bezos said that he foresees the Kindle books and Kindle readers becoming two separate businesses.
“We are going to give the device team competition” by having Kindle books available on “mobile devices and other computing devices,” stated Bezos. Bezos did not specify which other devices Kindle books would be offered.
Amazon.com was even considering whether to offer the Kindle at a lower price with a monthly subscription price. But he preferred a one time higher price to keep things simple.
