I didn't realize they had updated the original Fire (Fire 1) to a Fire 2. Is it just a firmware update to match its big brother the Fire HD, or did they upgrade the hardware too?
To be honest I was never impressed with the Fire 1 and the Fire HD really isn't much better. The special Amazon GUI is really annoying and the lack of Collections for books inexcusable, IMO. The only reason I reluctantly bought the Fire HD was because the Paperwhite sucked even worse and I wanted a mid-size tablet/reader with good screen for reading Kindle books in low lit areas. The Fire HD does excel at that task. But if Apple had put a better screen on the mini I would have bought it instead as the Kindle for iPad app is really good.
