Supposedly this podcast talks about Kindle 3 rumors. I haven't listened to it yet:

K3 as early as April?  Didn't K2 just come out a month or so ago?  Are updates that soon normal for gadgets?  I did not listen to the podcast, just read the headline.  Anyone that listened, can you enlighten?

You will not see a Kindle 3 this year. Generally there a 12 to 14 month lifecycle until a gadget gets updated.

Does anyone know where the link to the Wall Street Journal about the Kindle was posted?  Thanks in advance,

I ordered my Kindle 2 Friday night; it should be here Tuesday.  Can't wait.  Called and talked to customer service with questions (I read the negative reviews on Amazon) and they said there were no plans right now for a Kindle 3.  Not that they would tell me if they were -- they want me to buy the K2!

Welcome Lisa!  I'm sure you'll love your Kindle like the rest of us.  Oh, try to catch up on your sleep because some of the authors you read about on KindleBoards will keep you up late.  ;D

Kindle2 arrived today!   :D
Hubby won't be home for a few hours.  Hmmmmm, I wonder how the sharing is going to go?
Isn't there a Name your Kindle thread somewhere?

Congrats Carol on getting your Kindle. There are threads in Let's Talk Kindle about names. I know there was a thread sharing Kindle names, but not sure where. If I find it I'll post a link for you. :)
