I don’t know if the photos were really leaked. The Kindle is too thin as you can see on the picture above, the back-view of the so-called “official” Kindle 2 looks like an apple iPhone to me. The guy with the kindle is pretty convincing though.

We have to wait until next Monday for it to be official.

UPDATE: Kindle 2 is out on Amazon
