Kindle 2.0?

Rumors are now flying (again) that Amazon will indeed release a new version of the Kindle early next year. Supposedly, the new version is easier in terms of the page forward/page back buttons. However, I have to say from just looking at the picture that a) it's not radically prettier, and b) the keys in the keyboard look even closer together.

So, I'm not sorry I didn't wait for the 2.0 version. Unless it's got some new function that mine can't do, I'm fine with what I've got! And if it's purely better software, Kindle can accept software updates when the wireless is turned on, so I don't see why all us Kindle 1.0 owners couldn't benefit from anything like that.

Kindle 1.0 = still worth it
