Buy Kindle 2 from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now

Amazon officially announced today as expected the Kindle 2 eBook reader. Kindle 2 sells for $359 on Amazon.com and will ship February 24th.
If you want the Kindle 2 do not hesitate to order it right away as I would not trust Amazon's supply capacities for it.
Amazon says that Kindle 2 offers a new slim design with longer battery life, faster page turns, over seven times more storage, sharper images, and a new read-to-me feature.
The new read-to-me feature basically turns the Kindle 2 into an audio book. It uses text-to-speech technology and is still an experimental feature.
Other features of the 0.36 inch thick Kindle 2 include 2GB storage, 25% Longer Battery Life than Kindle, 6-inch, 600 x 800 electronic paper display with 16 shades of grey (Kindle only had 4) and still connects only via Amazon Whispernet (3G Sprint network).

Kindle 2 has a high-resolution 6-inch electronic paper display that looks and reads like real paper, which lets users read for hours without the eyestrain caused by reading on a backlit display.

The Kindle Store currently offers more than 230,000 books and as already reported an exclusive Stephen King novel.
