Amazon Kindle 2 Review

Great review on the new Kindle 2 out on Engadget. Their take on the Kindle 2, “The buy-in for the unit itself is $359 — not cheap — and everything you put on it is going to cost you a little bit more. After a while, that can start to add up, and we’re not convinced it makes sense for just anyone. Ultimately, it boils down to a question of needs, because — like the first Kindle — the Kindle 2 doesn’t represent such a sea change in technology that we think everyone should run out and buy it.”

Posted this great video in-depth review on the difference of Kindle 1 and 2 from ZDNet Mobile Gadgeteer by Matthew Miller.  Interesting in knowing more? check out his other articles on the Kindle 2 at his blog, link here.
