To read customer reviews of the Kindle 2 go here: Kindle 2 Reviews

  • The Kindle 2 is just over 1/3 of an inch thick – check out the picture below.
  • It weighs only 10.2 ounces – less than most paperbacks.
  • Get Books in under 60 seconds with no pc required.
  • Longer Battery Life – 25% longer than the original Kindle. You can read for days without recharging. Here’s a tip to make battery life last even longer: extend battery life
  • More Storage – Holds over 1500 books. The only drawback is that there is no SD card slot now.
  • Page turns are 20% faster.
  • Whispersync – this allows you to sync two or more Kindle devices. This is a great new feature.
  • The five way rocker button is an improvement over the rolling wheel that the Kindle 1 has for navigation.
  • The head phone jack and on/off switch are now at the top of the Kindle. This will now provide easier access.
  • Read to Me – New text to speech feature will read every book, blog, magazine and newspaper out loud to you.

  • Over 230,000 books now available from Amazon along with many hundreds of thousands from other sources.
  • 16 level gray scale screen – the Kindle 1 had only 4 shades. This will make text even clearer and images much crisper.
  • Improved button placement should decrease the number of accidental page turns.

There are some links in the email I receive from your site as well as in this site that take me to a GoDaddy.com advertising site. An example is below. “Extend battery life” is linked, but it takes me to an advertising site. How can I actually get through to the link instead of the GoDaddy site that asks me if I want to buy the domain?

This tip takes you to Godaddy.com: “Longer Battery Life – 25% longer than the original Kindle. You can read for days without recharging. Here’s a tip to make battery life last even longer: extend battery life”
Would love it if this was corrected.

I am looking to buy a Kindle. I have the Kindle for PC and several books in it. Can I upload from the Kindle for PC to a Kindle?

I bought my Kindle 9/26/10. Have used it almost everyday since. I LOVE my Kindle. It is nice not to buy the same book twice. Have read almost 400 books since purchased. This is incredible.

Thank You!
