The Kindle 2– A Perfect Gift for Mom or Dad

Written on 05/04/2010 by Andrew | 0 comments

Need a great gift for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day? Look no further—the Amazon Kindle is the perfect present for mom or dad. This sleek device has been redesigned and is now thinner than a pencil, much faster, and the battery lasts a lot longer.

UPDATE 11/21/11: Amazon has released new Kindles. Check out our new guide here.

The Amazon Kindle 2 has an E-Ink display which means that the device uses no power to keep the screen on. The E-Ink screen will not only give you days of battery life but the screen is easy to read indoors or outdoors in full daylight. The screen does not have a backlight and is matted, which means there is no reflection. The Kindle 2 has 2GB of internal memory that will hold over 1500 books, and not only can you read the Kindle, but it can read to you. The Kindle 2 features a text-to-speech function that will read aloud—perfect for those long car rides where you do not want to stare at a screen for a long period of time.

The Kindle 2 also features a full QWERTY keyboard that makes searching the bookstore and internet easy. When you want to purchase a book, simply press the “buy” button and the book automatically downloads in less than a minute. It certainly beats a trip to the book store!
