God love my Amazon Kindle. I got it back in August for my birthday from my brother-in-law and his girlfriend and boy do I love it. Nothing beats holding a lightweight, sleek reader that can download a book in under a minute. Well, now maybe something can. The Amazon Kindle 2 has just been announced and it promises to be faster, leaner and meaner. Here are the stats: Slim & Lightweight: Just over 1/3 inch and 10.2 ounces Books in under 60 seconds: Get books delivered in less than 60 seconds; no PC required Improved Display: Reads like real paper; now boasts 16 shades of gray for crisp images and text; even reads well in bright sunlight Longer Battery Life: 25% longer battery life; read for days without recharging More Storage: Take your library with you; holds over 1,500 books Faster Page Turns: 20% faster page turns Read-to-Me: Text-to-Speech feature means Kindle can read every book, blog, magazine, and newspaper out loud. No Wireless Bills: No monthly wireless bills, data plans, or commitments. Amazon pays for Kindle's wireless connectivity so you won't see a monthly wireless bill. Large Selection: Over 230,000 books, plus U.S. and international newspapers, magazines and blogs available Low Book Prices: New York Times Best Sellers and New Releases $9.99, unless marked otherwise This item will be released on February 24, 2009.
