You think they could have put it in awz format... (kidding) :)

Hang on a minute...

"Power - AC power adapter and replaceable, rechargeable lithium polymer battery."

Does that say what I think it says?

In the manual, they use the term '5-way' to refer to the joystick.

Kind of a clumsy term, if you ask me.

Very clumsy term. So is it like a thumbstick on a video game controller then?

Ever been in a 5-way? "Clumsy" doesn't even begin to describe it.

It very clearly does NOT say "User replaceable". Just like Ipod.

Good eye! (As they say in baseball.)

So you probably have to pay the postage and be kindleless for a week or more in order to get the battery replaced.

Don't throw away your original shipping box, folks.

They should make a horror movie about that. Kindleless for a week or more!

Scanning the user's guide quickly, you can now search just in the book you are reading.

The more I read this, the more excited I am. Even though there's no folders, there is more organization. From the home screen I can choose to show books, personal documents, subscriptions, or all my items. There's also an archived items (folder?) that shows items that are on amazon, but not on your kindle)

It's certainly a HUGE step in the right direction.

Also, it appears the home screen now displays the current time.

Aww, but I liked when my Kindle told me it was fifty nine past ten...

I like the power button on the top instead of the back.  I can't tell how many fingernails I've broken on the K1 on the on button.  The other nice thing is that the Whispernet is now turned on and off from the menu not a separate button.

Scott:  The K1 User manual also touts: "Power — AC power adapter and replaceable, rechargeable lithium polymer battery."

The difference is that the K1 Manual included instructions for replacing your battery in the "Maintaining Your Kindle" chapter, while the K2 Manual does not.

Jim: I just went back to the what are you reading post: ROTFLMAO!!! Luvya.

Ask LR if she wants me to mail her a sympathy card? I did that when my husband sold his 66 GTO convertible: I sent the new owner's wife a sympathy card stating that I wouldn't miss the grease. I am kicking myself; the car is now worth more than half the value of my house!!
