Amazon unveils thinner, lighter Kindle 2

I checked out the details on the new Kindle 2 from Amazon. Right off, the pictures indicate better ergonomics and button placement — someone must have climbed in bed and tried to use it this time — and I understand from ComputerWorld the revolution may come from WhisperSynch — giving users the ability to read cross platform on G1s or iPhones perhaps.

I won’t upgrade. The news seems to be in the cross-platform reader and opening of the format to alternative devices.
