An excellent Kindle 2.5 mockup

Reader Ken writes in with his design for an improved Kindle 2, featuring a sliding keyboard to keep the scale down, at the cost of extra depth.

When I first saw the new Kindle 2.0 images, I hated the big bezel too. However, I also hated the ever-present keyboard. I understand why Amazon wants it there, but does it need to stare me in the face all the time, even when I'm just reading a book?

Though I don't think the K2 is as ugly as some believe, Amazon's gotten it wrong in a particularly inspiring way. Thank you, Ken!
