We now return to our regularly scheduled forums.
Hey, I was trying to be NICE! After all, we can't all be blessed with the ability to see the beauty in a perfectly crafted e-book reader. Clunky my arse.

Please I did not need that description, Oh you were still talking about the Kindle, Sorry I am still a little ruffled from a certain Duck. I thought you were quite nice about it, I just like to make sure the new members are informed before they bring down the wrath of DG!!

Another thing I really do appreciate about my Sony that Kindle 2.0 should incorporate: page numbers.

I'd love to have the bigger screen version. I like to read a lot of non-fiction books and these books often have special formatting of the pages, larger images, equations, diagrams, and that sort of thing. The 6" screen size of the Kindle is inappropriate for these types of books, so PLEASE give me that big screen size. I WILL BUY IT!!!

With this screen size, I can also see colleges and highschools using nothing but e-book Textbooks.

Very good point on the Kindle......luckily the books I read don't have pictures, or diagrams....

Well after an exhaustive search via a bajillion hits on google, It seems they all reference the original Crunch Gear post. Nothing new as of late, Even Cnet just nods at crunchgear. Hope to see something from Amazons Camp in the next few weeks.

One can argue the kindle is something that "Just works" / "does the job". But this ugly piece of device is everything but "sexy". On the new version it look like it will still be a challenge for a newcomer to pick up this device without pressing any button.

The kindle is more like the "boombox" you carry over the shoulder.
Very well said! Will the new version have a slot for the glucose test strips? (it will still look like an over-sized medical equipment from the 1970s) Must be the ugliest mainstream gadget of the decade! I did mention Kindle 2 when the prices for the old monstrosity were suddenly dropped recently. Flog off the old stock, bring in the new. An ugly, clunky, over-buttoned (!) device backed by an uglier marketing campaign (rumors) and business practices. I will NEVER buy one!

Ahem. And who really gives a rats ass if you do? Rather pompous, arrogant rant, don't you think? ever heard of 'to each his own'? The fact that you don't care for it or Amazon gives you the privilege to not purchase the Kindle or buy from Amazon. It does not give you the right to spew your poisonous crap.

Amazon operates in a free market economy. It can sell products however it pleases at whatever price it pleases. Last I heard its doing okay...must be doing something right.
