The design improvements in the Kindle 2 are excellent, overcoming most of the shortcomings of the original Kindle. The slick design is a real winner. The loss of the memory card slot does not detract much from its use. However, the lack of the user replaceable battery will shorten the life of the device and/or add to the cost of continued use. Also, the lack of the carrying case without any reduction in price is regrettable. Although the technology is wonderful and the Kindle is an excellent reading device.
