If you ordered the newly upgraded Kindle 2, chances are your order was shipped today. A quick look at the Amazon website, indicates that there is not waiting list at this time.
This could me one of two things: either amazon have more than enough Kindle 2’s available for shipment or not too many people are buying at this time.
Something tells me that the latter is true. Here’s why. A lot of people bought into kindle 1 . Those very same individuals may not be ready to pluck out another $359 at this time for an upgrade…especially with the economy the way it is.
After all, $359 is a lot of money…I can think of a lot of things I can do with that kind of money…but Kindle 2 is also very tempting.
Anyway the first set of Kindle 2 were shipped today which means that many people will get their hands on the device probably as soon as tomorrow…Now we just have to wait and see what the public response is the device…I can’t wait.
For those of you wondering about what you will get if while you were waiting you your Kindle 1 order, Kindle 2 came out…you will be getting the upgraded Kindle 2.
Also, if you are wondering if you can transfer your Kindle 1 content to your Kindle 2, the answer is yes. All you have to do is make sure that your new Kindle 2 is registered to the same account as Kindle 1 and you will have access to all its content.
which lead me to another point…
There’s been a lot of questions about how to share kindle content. Well, here’s an idea.
To share content with a friend, de-register your kindle2 from your account and temporarily register it to your friend’s account, download all the content he or she has then re-register your kindle to your account. Allow your friend to do the same with your content… the key is to convince your friend to do it. Try it and let me know how it went…Good luck. more later…
