Amazon unveils Kindle 2

Amazon has finally taken the wrap off the long awaited Kindle 2. The much rumored and leaked Kindle 2 was announced by Amazon today sporting a thinner profile and improved ergonomics; also bundled with the Kindle will be an exclusive Stephen King novel "UR".

The Kindle 2 is thinner than an iPhone at .36 inches, boasts a read to me feature that will read the audio books out loud, 16-level e-ink display that turns pages 20 times faster, and will have 25 percent longer battery life than its predecessor. The Whisper Net service that comes with the Kindle 2 will also see software upgrade that will allow for book marking that lets you to move from one Kindle to another without losing your place.

The Kindle 2 will be sold by Amazon for $359.00 and is available for pre-order now. Judging by the last sale of the Kindle, this will fly off the shelves and may be hard to come by for some time.
