Amazon’s Kindle now in-stock, practically for the first time ever

If you missed the brief five hour window of in-stock availability when Jeff Bezos’ hideous, easily stained but decidedly feature-rich e-book reader was first announced, rush quickly over to Amazon, where the Kindle is now available and in-stock.

Oh, it’s beautiful, isn’t it? It’s like witnessing some wildly improbable and magnificently singular event, like a galactic syzygy or the exact moment in which a cluster of hot core gasses spontaneously forms a planet populated entirely by nubile virgins with a penchant for tickle fights.

I guess this means that Amazon’s finally got its Kindle stock problems fixed. Either that, or they decided they’d gotten as much buzz as they were possibly going to get out of the Kindle being perpetually “out of stock.”

    Woah, I had no idea that the kindle had free evdo for surfing wikipedia; that’s actually pretty cool.

    Unfortunately, now that it’s actually in stock I have to add it to the long list of gadgets that I need to resist buying if I want to still have money for food. Ok, money for liquor.

    Can it properly handle PDFs yet? One of the showstoppers for me on its release was its reported shoddy (or nonexistent) handling of PDF content. It would be lovely to avoid printing out a stack of research papers every time I fly.

    I like tickle fights.
