The next generation is here. Amazon will be releasing its second generation wireless reading device, Kindle 2 for shipping February 24…and I want it! The updated e-reader is slimmer and has better features, but is still $359. Guess hoping it would drop in price like everything else during this recession was a pipe dream.
Some of the upgrades:
- half the thickness of the original Kindle
- can store 7 times more books than the original (1,500)
- reads text aloud
- turns pages 25% faster
- 25% longer battery life
- can be charged via a USB port
The Kindle 2 still weights about 10 ounces and the catalog boasts 230,000 titles. Also, exclusively for this device is a Stephen King novella titled "UR".
