Mobileread just got a bunch of official-looking Kindle 2 photos, which show it in various states being held and read, plus info that it's being released for $US359 on February 24.
From the photos, it looks definitely a LOT thinner than the first, and maybe even a bit smaller too. Unless that man has gigantic hands, the Kindle goes from the tip of his middle finger to slightly below his wrist—not too shabby.
The photos may look fantastic and the news, by association, may seem official, but we don't know with 100% certainty that this is the actual price and actual release date until we hear from Amazon.
AU: Pleae Amazon - don't be bastards with this one and let us buy it in Australia. Please?
