Kindle 2 by Amazon

Updated on August 6, 2011

Amazon Kindle 2

Reading a book today is now easier than ever and you will always be able to track the page you just left reading thanks to a new electronic reading device available on the market known as a ''Kindle ''. A Kindle will allow you to go back and forth through the pages of your favorite books with just a click of a button.

You can buy your eBooks online from the Amazon’s Store vast library using your Kindle 2 and it takes only about one minute before you can start reading it. You can also subscribe to magazines and newspapers and have them delivered to your Kindle 2 instead of your doorsteps; this option is especially good for commuters that will not get their hands dirty from the ink..


Amazon Kindle 2 is an eBook reader with a pleasantly thin, smooth and shinier appearance when compared to the previous version. Its dimensions are: width 5.3 in x depth 0.4 in x height 8 in, and its weight is 0.6 lbs. Kindle 2 has 2 GB of memory, a display resolution of 800x600 pixels and external audio supported by two speakers on the rear-side. A great feature of the Kindle 2 is that it supports Digital Audio Formats MP3.

Kindle 2 is a very easy to use device and it has a very long lasting battery that will give you from two days up to two weeks of reading, depending if the wireless device is on or off.The screen refreshes faster on the Kindle 2 than the previous model thanks to the better processor and this will allow you to turn pages without much delay.

Kindle is equipped with a special feature that can read the text to you (Text-to-Speech) and has also a built-in dictionary as well as built-in free wireless (Whispernet) that will allow you to access the Amazon‘s Store vast library as long as you have Sprint Data coverage in the area, however when no signal is available, you can always connect your Kindle 2 to a PC via USB port. The gadget unfortunately does not have a back-light that will allow to be able to read in the dark, but this can be easily fixed by using any other type of light source.

If you really enjoy reading, with the conveniences that this small gadget has to offer, Kindle 2 is for you.
