The Kindle Deluxe.

6 May

Not sure if I am for or against, but I am definitely “ears-perked”. Amazon released a deluxe Kindle 2.0, a bigger screen than its second gen brother Kindle. The next step to a completely paperless society…possibly starting with campuses?

It is 2.5 times larger, and $130 more expensive.

Kindle 2.0 | New York City February 9

6 Feb

Mark your calendars, e-book fans: Amazon.com will introduce the next generation of its popular Kindle reader in New York City on Feb. 9.

UPDATE: It has arrived! Previous owners have until February 10 to order with priority. New features include more internal storage, 25% longer battery life, text-to-speech, fixed design flaws for hold-a-bility (for lack of a better word, I make them up), 20% faster page turning, and 16 shades of grey for improved text and images quality. I want one, of course! (and would be happy to sell you my Kindle 1.0)
