Amazon has called a press conference for February 9th in New York. The company hasn’t indicated what specifically the press conference is regarding, but rumor has it the company may be announcing the second generation of its popular e-book reader Kindle.
Amazon hasn’t held a press conference (in general) since November of 2007 when it announced the first generation Kindle. The Kindle 2 was actually expected to be released late last year. The device is expected to have a QWERTY keyboard, smaller page turn controls, and a thinner casing than the original model. The first version of the reader has done quite well, and while it hasn’t quite revived the e-book market in the way Amazon originally planned, it has sold out from their store on more than one occasion.
What do you think of the Kindle? What would you like to see in Kindle 2?
