Amazon started to ship the new eBook reader Kindle 2 one month ago. Either Amazon made enough Kindle devices or the interest is not as high as the Kindle 2 is still in stock. To find out if Kindle 2 lives up to the hype our review partner Digital Trends tested the future of reading.

Quote from the review: "Reading a book online is like cooking a hotdog with your bare hands at a campfire: it doesn't really work, and the longer you try, the more it hurts. Even if you find a really compelling e-book, current generation LCD screens flicker too much - your brain and your eyes know this, even if you can't tell - and the resolution is too low. Besides, no one wants to curl up for the night in front of their Dell desktop. Yet, as major newspapers such as the Seattle Post-Intelligencer move to an online-only format, the issue of reading online will only become more important. Amazon recently upgraded its first eBook reader, the Kindle, to make online reading more bearable - without a computer and without the Web. It's an intelligent device, marred only slightly by a less-than-stylish approach and scant "open e-book" support."
