Although Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos wants it to “disappear,” the just released Kindle 2 e-book reader is drawing quite a bit of attention for its Apple-like design.

Among the new features drawing comparison with the iPod and iPhone are Amazon’s decision to adopt an aluminum back and a sleeker size – 25 percent thinner than the iPhone, reports said.

Although Amazon Monday mentioned only that the new version of its e-reader “will also sync with a range of mobile devices in the future,” the iPhone could be among those devices.


A potential Kindle-iPhone link would put pressure on existing e-book readers, such as Lexcycle’s Stanza and the eReader from Fictionwise.
