Kindle 2 features rounded corners, a black and white screen and is apparently the same size as the original Kindle with a 3.5mm headphone jack with a sliding sleep button at the top. It includes a unified QWERTY keyboard under the screen. Smaller navigation buttons are placed on both the left and right sides of Kindle 2. A joystick now replaces the original Kindle scroll wheel.
More to come on Monday at the official event.
