Sprint network used to power Kindle 2
The original Kindle e-book reader was one of the first dedicated gadgets to allow users to view various books, newspapers, and magazines. There has been an explosion since its release and Amazon.com announced today that the Kindle 2 will be available and powered by Sprint’s EVDO network. The device makes some new improvements to make it a more complete e-book reader with better battery life, storage capacity, and true wireless without the need of a PC. It uses the Amazon Whispernet that is the same wireless delivery system used on the original Kindle. Sprint’s EV-DO network will allow for downloading new content, shop the Kindle store, and read from their library. It’s worth noting that Amazon will pay for the wireless connection on the Kindle 2 so users won’t have to worry about paying an additional fee to Sprint for the service. The device is currently selling for $359.

Lifetime service? Thats a hell of a subsidy.
