Amazon Kindle 2

Amazon has just released some photos and launch details of their new Kindle, an ebook that uses and electronic paper display. A neat little feature is that it has access to the Amazon Wispernet via Sprint EVDO. My current Tafe course is based around designing and building electronic hardware, something I have always been fascinated about, with companies like Apple building devices and computers into incredibly thin enclosures. The kindle 2 as demonstrated below is an incredibly thin and sexy peice of hardware. From the creamy front to the aluminium back, design cues from a certain device have been used to their full extent. Great stuff Amazon, keep it up.
