Can Kindle 2 rekindle the ebook love affair?

In a word, no. She’s slim, she’s pretty and she’s well read, but our prognosis is this: a standalone reader is not going to win over book-loving hearts and minds. For a start, content costs need to come down. A lot. And we can’t help feeling that this is one area of technology where more convergence is needed. A colour e-Ink laptop or tablet might be the way forward, or a pocket device with a folding screen. Kudos to Amazon for fighting the good fight, but we don’t see Kindle winning the popular vote yet.
