Weekend whisperings of Amazon's new and improved Kindle 2 ($395) have proven to be not only true, but even better than we expected. Weighing in at just 10.2 ounces and measuring 1/3 of an inch, this upgrade on the classic e-book reader is more portable than a real book could ever hope to be. Other upgrades to the new device include a 25 percent longer battery life, 3G wireless (allowing for on-the-go dictionary usage!) and a text-to-speech feature, so your K2 can read to you when reading yourself isn't an option.
