Sneak peek at Amazon's Kindle version 2?
Despite vehemently denying a new Kindle was on the way, it looks like Amazon is getting version 2.0 ready to go. Boy Genius Report picked up some pictures which seem to show the next generation of Amazon's proprietary e-reading device.
The new-look Kindle has no SD card slot, a more rounded look (in fact, it looks bigger, which is a weird way to go, but it is apparently thinner) and has a more conventional keyboard. It also has the advantage over other readers like the Sony PRS-505 (and upcoming PRS-700 - seriously Sony, a catchy name is half the battle) in keeping the ability to wirelessly download books in minutes.
But there's no confirmation from Amazon as to whether this is the final design, and no announcement on when to expect it in the US - or if those of us in Europe who have been loyal Amazon customers for years will ever get the chance to get our hands on one... please?
