Default MP3 book reader

What do you all think of the dual purpose eBook readers/MP3s? Is Palm the number one provider for these products? I'd never really heard of them until recently, yet they seem to have been around a while.

I don't know anyoine who has one of these but I found this on a net search. I have no idea if this is a reasonable price but in general I'm not a major fan of dual purpose products. I imagine a stand alone MP3 and an eBook reader would be cheaper.

Generally almost everything is a dual purpose these days, when is the last time you saw somebody actually use a phone only as a phone? I imagine however that originally the intention was for it to play audio books too, not necessarily music.

I'm actually thinking about buying a kindle, if nothing else to ready all my ebooks on the fly, since I have some spare time on the commute, also they are web browsers too and integrating mp3 into something these days is quite easy.

I've gotten my wife the Kindle DX (big one) for Christmas. Free 3G comes with it, but I thought the only web browsing was for books. It'll be nice if it will browse more than just books.

Well the 2.0 version has web browsing, here is a video of it in action youtube.com/watch?v=Ei4KjhiK4To , I don't know about the original ones tho, but I see no reason why they shouldn't be able to.
