See Amazon Kindle 2.0 rumors - price increase, "confidential sources" suggest that you will have the option of upgrading.

Warning to anybody who will get a Kindle 2.0. You should really wait, as when the Kindle 3.0 comes out, it will put the old one to shame.

Or at least it will be newer.

If the new Kindle matches that described and pictured by the rumor mill*, I don't see it as an improvement (especially at similar or higher price).

* Not that I believe it, but I didn't believe the Kindle 1 leaked pictures either!

Not a problem at all. Progress is nice -- specs generally go up and prices generally go down.
