Hmm I think it's an uphill battle. I'm not sure the customer base is there either. Amazon is betting that people will want to buy content while they are mobile. Since while at home, hotel, airport, fast food restaurants and many other places offer free wifi. This would give connectivity while they are moving between these places. Can't while your driving. Maybe while on a bus. If they are investing the money in this I'm sure they have done the marketing to support their investment. Unless this is something they are just throwing a few dollars at and seeing what comes up.

Amazon might really have something here if this whole idea works it might be a good investment for Amazon
