The Kindle 2.0 is just out from Amazon and there are other ebook readers like the Hanvon n518. But you shouldn’t go out and buy it without first checking whether you will get coverage in your city. If you don’t live in a major city, your download speeds may be much lower or there might be no coverage at all.
This is something to consider before you plop down your money for what is in reality a very expensive device. All the reviews so far seem to be positive but if you don’t live in an area that gets good coverage, the Kindle 2 will not be what you hoped it to be.
A lot of improvements have been made to the Kindle 2 and it outclasses the first edition by miles. If you live in the Kindle 2 coverage areas you can download any book, newspaper, or magazine 24 hours a day with out having to be in a wireless “hot spot”. If you live in a major city the whole city will be a hot spot for the Kindle. You can buy the Kindle on Ebay but suprisingly they are going for more than they retail on Ebay. The best place right now to get the cheapest Kindle 2.0 is Amazon and they are in stock and can be shipped right away.
