    Just to get a sense of interest in the Kindle 2, will you buy one if or when Amazon announces them in two weeks? I love the current incarnation only and precisely because it makes it easy to grab ebooks over the air. I consider the form and design to be sub-par at worst and acceptable at best. I, for one, would love to see something a little thinner and a lot more durable. Poll after the jump. Read More
