Kindle Edition e-books appear on Amazon -- reader launch imminent

Here you go, the first honest to goodness proof that Amazon is prepped to launch their Kindle e-book reader. You know, that EV-DO packing device we extracted from the beige soiled bowels of the FCC filing last year. But seriously Amazon, $54 for an electronic book... are you kidding us? Anyway, the launch rumored for October 15th certainly looks imminent.

Update: As pointed out in the comments, an Amazon search of "Kindle Edition" responds with 631 books of which a couple dozen can be "auto-delivered wirelessly to Kindle." Alrighty then.
