(also offered in Canada for $149)

... On the outside, the new model looks almost identical to the older model, but it has a better screen, a faster processor, and offers longer battery life. While the screen is a definite step up, it doesn't appear that it's E-Ink next-generation Pearl display that's currently featured in the Kindle and new Sony Readers.

Here are the key specs:

* Price: $139.99
* 6-inch screen
* Weighs 7 ounces
* Built in Wi-Fi (802.11g)
* Faster processor makes turning pages over 2.5X times faster
* Sharper E-Ink screen (16-grayscale)
* Longer battery life: up to 10,000 page turns on a single charge (with the wireless setting turned off)
* 1GB of built-in memory stores up 1000 eBooks
* Expansion slot for SD card (store up to 5000 eBooks)
* Built-in dictionary
* Available in three colors (black, silver, and lavender)
* Support for ePub and PDF files
* 100 free classics and Poker game pre-loaded onto device
* Ships at the end of October (available for preorder now).
