If you loved the Kindle from Amazon, you'll probably love the Kindle 2 even more. Slimmer and more stylish, its changes are not merely cosmetic. We think Kindle 2 owners will really appreciate the superior display and extended battery life when compared to the original. Not as well hyped is the "Whispersync" feature, one which allows you to sync the Kindle 2 with the original model, as well as with a variety of mobile devices such as the iPhone and BlackBerry.

Carry your science fiction and fantasy library with you.

From release/information:

Here at a New York City media event, Amazon launched its second-generation e-book reader, the Kindle 2. This much anticipated update to the Kindle is priced at $359 and sports a new svelte design, longer battery life, and an improved display. Amazon is taking pre-orders today with units scheduled to ship to customers starting February 24. Current Kindle owners who pre-order the Kindle 2 by February 10 will jump to the front of the waiting list, Amazon says.

It turns out the leaked info on the Kindle 2 was spot-on. The images correctly reflected the new Kindle's notably more svelte and contoured industrial design.
