I don't believe it. Ten days after I ordered my Kindle, Amazon announces their new, third-generation Kindle. It's "smaller, lighter, faster with 50 % better contrast", looks more elegant and comes in graphite as well as black. Now they tell me! If I had only waited ten more days before ordering... Just my luck.
Oh well, I suppose it doesn't really matter. I'm sure I will love my second-generation Kindle once I start using it (I've been so busy the past few days I haven't really had a chance to try it out yet). It was just ... really lousy timing.
