The new wireless reading device named Kindle 2 is so far the best Ebook reader out there. Kindle 2 will be released on the last week of February 2009. The release date of Kindle 2 is being anticipated by millions of online shoppers, hence, Amazon even advised the public to place their orders online even before Kindle 2’s release date. The suggested retail price of Kindle 2 is under $400.
If you love to travel and bring your books with you, I suggest you get a Kindle 2 wireless Ebook reader. It can hold 230,000 Ebooks or more (depending on Ebook filesize) so you can be sure all the books that you love to read while you’re outdoors are in your pocket. Yup, in your pocket. Why? Kindle 2 is a very slim Ebook reader – as slim as a pencil! Kindle 2 is indeed one of the few gadgets I plan to to buy this year.
