Kindle 2.0 to Be Unveiled February 9

January 28th, 2009

According to a blog entry on the New York Times yesterday (and according to Google, at 351 other sources), Amazon will be announcing the long-awaited (by its fans) new version of the Kindle on February 9th at a special event in New York City (obviously intended to coincide with O’Reilly’s Tools of Change for Publishing conference which runs in the same city February 9-11).

Well, it will add greater fodder to the Kindle fad, and move the eBook evolution along, and there’s nothing wrong with that. The problems lie elsewhere, to be discussed in a subsequent blog entry.
