Here is a sampling of quotations from some of the articles on the Kindle 2:
"The new version displays more shades of grey than were previously possible, and Amazon has paired that with a set of updated fonts to make the text significantly crisper and easier to read. But it's the speed of the display that makes everything different."
"While he obviously loves the Kindle, [Stephen] King says print books will always be around. Instead, he sees e-books and print books as complementary.
'They're like peanut butter and chocolate, when you put them together you’ve got a whole new taste treat,' he said."
"In short, the improvements seem worthwhile, but there was no real curveball to give the Kindle a mainstream appeal. "
"We played for the unit for the briefest of moments, but it really does feel great in hand. The brushed metal back is great, the device is incredibly light and comfortable to hold, and the keyboard is fairly usable."
"Perhaps most significantly, Amazon said it would start selling e-books that can be read on mobile phones and other devices, although Amazon did not say when it would do so or which devices would be compatible."
