eWEEK has a behind-the-scenes look at the launch of the new Amazon Kindle 2 electronic reader at an exclusive event in New York City that features author Stephen King reading from his new novella called "Ur," which is available with the new Kindle device. On Feb. 9, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos announced the release of the Kindle 2 electronic reader at the Morgan Library and Museum in New York, demonstrating the device's improved functionality over its predecessor. The Amazon Kindle 2 features a 6-inch gray-scale screen and can store 1,500 books, or 1.4GB of data. For enterprise users, Kindle 2 has the ability to convert Word and PDF documents, which can then be wirelessly e-mailed to the device.
