For example, after an hour of playing with the Kindle 2 received this morning, a user with the handle tvBilly said in a post on Amazon's Kindle Forum that the device was "really slippery" when compared to the original Kindle. "I miss the rubber on the back of the Kindle 1," tvBilly wrote. "I've almost dropped the new Kindle 2 once or twice already." He also said that the Kindle 2 didn't seem as well-balanced in his hands as the original model.
On the other hand, tvBilly said that the Kindle 2's new button navigation features and the response time for activating a button are much better than what the first Kindle offered. In addition, the screen is more legible and pictures are clearer, wrote tvBilly, who also called the Kindle 2's new charger "the best thing since sliced bread" because it's based on a USB connector.
Also on the Kindle Forum, a user called Frank of Doom said that he had received his Kindle 2 this morning. "I was clever enough to have mine delivered to my office," Frank of Doom wrote. "It's sooooooo pretty! First impression is very positive, I love how the page buttons tilt in when pressed instead of out, feels much more solid. Not sure I'm going to get much work done today....."
