Amazon launch the latest version of the Kindle

Horror writer Stephen King helped Amazon launch the latest version of their electronic book the Kindle in New York today.

The second incarnation of the lightweight Kindle goes on sale in the US in February with a storage capacity of 2GB costing just over £240.

King read an excerpt from his latest book Ur at the launch, which will be released exclusively for Amazon's electronic reader. It is still not clear when or if the Kindle will be available in the UK.
