I didn’t get a chance to do my normal weekend update post because I was too busy exploring my new Kindle 2. I wrote a full unboxing and first impressions of the Kindle 2 feature over at Obsessable and will be doing a more thorough review sometime next week (most likely) after I’ve spent more time with the device. In short, I love it, but I still think it is overpriced and I wouldn’t have bought it if I didn’t make a bunch of Amazon gift credits by trading in old gadgets that had been lying around my house, unused. After all was said and done, I only spent $60 on the Kindle 2, and that included 2nd-day shipping.
I’ve been reading quite a bit on the device since I got it. The wireless delivery of periodicals on it is really cool and the keyboard plus note-taking features of the device make it notably better than my old Sony Reader. Here’s a Flickr slideshow of my Kindle 2 set of pictures:
