Amazon.com has released Kindle 2, a revamped edition of its network-enabled e-reader device promising a new slim design with extended battery life, faster page turns, seven times more storage, sharper images and a new read-to-me feature.

New features include the text-to-speech 'read-to-me' feature, which converts printed text to spoken-word audio, a five-way controller allowing for more precise note-taking and highlighting, and more efficient transitions between articles and sections of newspapers.

In addition, Kindle 2 arrives embedded with the New Oxford American Dictionary with 250,000 built-in definitions.

The Kindle 2 features 2 GB of memory and can store up to 1,500 books compared to only 200 for the original device.
