Has anyone seen the newest Sprint commercial? I saw it on TV last night during Dancing with the Stars (or maybe it was American Idol). Anyway, the whole premise is how large their 3G network is and all that takes place at one time and one scene was a woman with a Kindle and they were talking about x number of women downloading books onto their Kindles. It was pretty neat.

The only surprise is that they didn't do commercials tying Kindle to Sprint sooner. . . . .

Probably for the imagery of the romance novel (big paperback sellers after all). I could see it "38 women (and one guy who won't admit it) are downloading the latest romance novel."

Notice NO skins or Oberon covers?  Somebody needs to talk to those folks at the Sprint PR firm  :D

I was downloading Lord of the Rings at the exact same time those 38 women were downloading their romance novels. Sexist commercial.  :)

Great ad.  I would love to be doing any one of those things.  Unfortunately -- NO Spring coverage.  That is just wrong.

Well, it is, at bottom, a SPRINT commercial, not a Kindle commercial.

I think it's pretty good that they mention it at all. . . . .

(Does the Kindle look yellow to you? Or maybe that's just because they've made everything look a little yellow. Why yellow?)

Only 38 women? Shouldn't it be "1,500 people are downloading the latest free book posted on Kindleboards"?

I'm with ya on this one! Would have made a much bigger impact! (and would have been free advertizing for KB!)

I bet they chose women on a beach because that's what Amazon themselves chose in the video Amazon made on Amazons Kindle 2 home page.  /shrug
