Amazon Kindle 2


For all the book lovers, here is Amazon’s newest e-book reader, Kindle 2 now available in India.

On October 7, 2009, Amazon announced an international version of the Kindle 2 that will work in over 100 countries, available October 19, 2009 for $259. The international Kindle 2 is physically very similar to the U.S.-only model although it uses a different mobile network standard. The original Kindle 2 uses the Sprint network while the international version uses AT&T’s U.S. mobile network and roams on 3G, EDGE, and GSM networks in other countries. On October 22, Amazon lowered the price on the international version to $259 from $279 and ceased selling the U.S.-only model.

The Kindle 2 features 16-level grayscale display, improved battery life, 20 percent faster page-refreshing, a text-to-speech option to read the text aloud, and overall thickness reduced from 0.8 to 0.36 inches (9.1 mm). The Kindle 2 has 2 GB of internal memory of which 1.4 GB is user-accessible. Amazon estimates that the Kindle 2 will hold about 1500 non-illustrated books. Unlike the original Kindle, Kindle 2 does not have a slot for SD memory cards.

So what’s this blog about?

Another attempt? Well yes. Attempting to figure out another sustainable model (there are some other attempts going on parallel-ly). Well, we have a lot of questions in mind. we read up stuff, we do some research to find answers to these questions. This is an attempt to publish that little 15-20 minute research.
