Amazon Introduces Kindle 2
As we had anticipated the weekend Amazon presents the new Kindle 2, which offers big, big improvements compared to the previous version of your e-book reader.
Has barely 9 millimeters wide, it includes a new electronic ink capable of reproducing 16 layers of gray for images and texts (the previous one had only 4). Too improves battery by 25%, resolution of 600×800 pixels, improvement also in the user interface: better positioned buttons.
Now for the bad news: keep using EVDO, that is, when it leaves the United States it becomes practically a stone, you cannot buy books online, you cannot browse the Amazon store, nothing at all. Yes, you can copy books to the device via USB in format (.azw, .pdf, .txt, among others).
Costs $ 359 dollars and you have to be within the United States (almost a no-brainer) to acquire it.
