My Kindle was delivered today!  I charged it up and have been playing with it for the past couple of hours.  The screen looks very nice, although I could not test it in direct sunlight as it was drizzling this evening in NYC.  Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny tomorrow, so I will check it out then.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Although I have never seen a KK, the text on my K2 is very crisp.  I wear glasses with a pretty strong prescription, but I was able to read even the smallest text level without difficulty.  I notice the the brighter the reading light the more "white" the background appears to look.

The reader came with Version 2.0 software installed.  I am resisting the urge to manually update to 2.02.  Want to see if it will happen on its own.

I also received my Amazon cover.  The hinge system is very cool indeed and overall I like the cover.  That being said there may be a Oberon cover in my future!  I'm leaning for the Tree of Life in saddle.  I will go with the straps rather than the velcro as I really don't want to stick anything to the K2 (well except for a screen protector - which is on order).

In additon to the screen protector I also ordered a Mighty Bright Book light at the time I ordered the K2, but neither has shipped yet.  Lastly I order the Kwik Tec Dry Pac yesterday and got a shipping notice today.

Anyway I finally know what you all have been raving about!

Welcome to Kindle ownership!

It didn't take me long to realize I didn't like the white bezel at all... It was brighter than the reading screen, and that was distracting. I knew I was going to get a case of some kind (now have Oberon River Garden in red), but my first purchase was a darker DecalGirl skin.

Get thee to the Accessories forum and go nuts!

Yay, enjoy!  What book are you going to read 1st?

Watch out for those Oberons.  It's a really slippery slope.  1st you order one, then maybe one more for a change of pace and then you'll start thinking...hmmm..good things come in 3's, right?

Congratulations on your new Kindle I am sure you are going to love "it"(?) as much as we all love ours.  Do post pictures when you have outfitted him/her.

Yes, I got mine yesterday as well, and spent all evening playing with it.  Since I want to be sure about the cover, I put mine in a 5x7 zippered leather notepad cover (which works wonderfully so far!!) and have been scouring the net for new books and accessories.
