Though it may still use the same display, the original “Kindle [left] measured 7.5″ x 5.3″ x 0.7″ while Kindle 2 [right] clocks in at 8″ x 5.3″ x 0.36″.” Kindle 2 also weighs 0.1-ounces less, compared to its predecessor. Click here for first picture in gallery.

It may not have shed much weight, but 10.2 ounces is still comparable to a traditional paperback book – and it’s still quite an accomplishment given the 7-fold increase in storage and 25% increase in battery life.
