eBay Opportunists Already Trying To Sell Their Kindle 2 Pre-Orders For $$$

Amazon announced the Kindle 2 today and there are already people on eBay trying to sell their “place in line” for a huge markup. The new Kindle will retail for $359.00 (you can pre-order them now) but if you are really impatient can pay some person on eBay $599.99 for their presumably better pre-order spot.. ugh.

The whole thing sort of reminds us of the Canadian guy who got stuck with a closet full of PS3s.
