Amazon Kindle 2

These images were posted on the forums at MobileRead.com and the poster (Alexander Turcic) claimed that they were official images. Alexander Turcic also claims that the Kindle 2 will go on sale on February 24, 2009 (release date unconfirmed) for $359.

The new Kindle looks significantly better then the previous Kindle. Not only does it seem much easier to hold then the previous Kindle but it also has a much better button layout and looks much thinner than the original.

I wanted the Kindle before, but now I really want the new Kindle, almost enough to pay $359 for it (seriously shouldn’t this device be like $249?).
