Amazon is releasing its second generation of Kindle, its perpetually sold-out ebook reader. The new Kindle is faster and has more memory, and also substitutes a joystick for the page turning buttons along the side that always made me feel like I was using my mother’s old desktop phone directory (with the slider that would cause the page for the right letter to drop open… remember?).
But maybe most important, the new Kindle is available now… or almost now, because Amazon promises they have 320,000 of them for shipment starting 2/24. You can get it here.
