The New AMAZON Kindle 2

Thursday, February 12, 2009

Are you an avid book reader? Fiction, non-fiction, novels, mysteries...Has your bookcase exceeded capacity for bound books? Are you ready to switch modes of reading and enter the digital world of reading?

I'm excited to share news that the Amazon Kindle 2 , the next generation wireless reading device is available for pre-order. If you have heard about this new gadget for reading your favorite books, then you know it was sold out during the Christmas shopping season.

With a sleek and thin design that makes Kindle 2 as thin as a typical magazine and lighter than a paperpack, the new Kindle has seven times more storage and now holds over 1,500 books. It has a longer battery life and faster page turns. An advanced display provides even crisper images and clearer text for an improved book-like reading experience. And Kindle 2 even reads to you, with “Read to Me”, our new Text to Speech feature.

With Kindle 2, Amazon kept everything readers love about the original Kindle—the convenience of reading what you want, when you want it, the immediacy of getting a book wirelessly delivered in less than 60 seconds, and Kindle’s ability to “disappear” in your hands so you can get lost in the author’s words. The Kindle Store has over 230,000 ebooks available.
No more collecting dust on your bookshelves, the Kindle is sleek, modern and quick to receive your favorite books.
Share your comments once you have the Kindle and let us know how the experience differs from turning pages. At least we know it saves many trees, right?!
