Kindle 2 Now Available - Wireless Download for Books

The Kindle 2 from Amazon is now available. The original Kindle has been a huge favorite since its launch in late 2007, letting consumers download books wirelessly. (For those interested, Amazon uses the Sprint 3G data network; there is no charge to consumers for the wireless service used).

The Kindle 2 improves on the original Kindle, with a sleek and thin design 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.

The Kindle Store now has over 230,000 ebooks available, enough to make everyone happy -- unless you are a bookstore owner.
