Aliso Viejo, California (PressExposure) March 01, 2009 -- Amazon unveils the Kindle 2 Reader with Slimmer design, more storage, and text-to-speech.
Amazon continues to buck the global economic trend, maintaining consistent revenue and a healthy financial portfolio. This is due in no small part to active listening for the voice of the consumer. Amazon provides reliable, convenient, and secure online transactions. The adherence to consumer preference is evident in the technology improvements carefully selected for the Kindle 2 Reader.
At just over 1/3 inch thick and a mere 10.2 ounces, the sleek new design of the Kindle 2 is slimmer and lighter the average paperback. The display provides 16 shades of grayscale for crisp black and white clarity. Amazon opted not to use a color display in exchange for 25% longer battery life that lasts for days, thinner display, and a cool device that does not get hot in your hands or on your lap.
Even with the compact form factor, the Amazon Kindle 2 Reader is able to store an amazing 1,500 books. Downloading a new title takes less than 60 seconds and does not require connection to a PC or other device. This enables the reader to select from a catalog of more than 240,000 electronic books at Amazon and create a personal digital library on a portable device.
The assortment of books available for the Amazon Kindle 2 Reader is equally impressive. Many New York Times Bestsellers and new releases are available for less than Ten Dollars US. This enables the consumer to discover a hot new title, download it in under a minute, and read it at his or her convenience. The Amazon Kindle 2 also boasts text-to-speech technology, so the reader can listen to a book while conducting other tasks.
Many of the hottest new titles, best selling, and award winning books are now available for immediate download to the Amazon Kindle 2 Reader.
