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.
