You might consider waiting a while until the new kindle paperwhite is available in Europe (or get one from the States).

That seems to be the major game-changer in the kindle lineup with higher resolution lighted display. I am eagerly awaiting delivery of mine to a US colleague who will bring it to europe in 3 weeks (to complement and, if possible, replace my Kindle keyboard). However, right now there still seem to be QC issues, so waiting might make sense.

One word - I have had the kindle fire now since its launch a year ago, and it is nice (and usable in Europe if you get a virtual US debit card, e.g. through www.usunlocked.com), but for reading it is not as good as the eInk kindles.

Or, you might pick up a used kindle keyboard at a good price from somebody upgrading now.

Or, of course, you could consider continuing to use your kindle 2. Likely it has not gotten any worse since when you bought it...

Regards,
