The E-Ink technology is courtesy of E-Ink (Cambridge, Massachusetts). Which was purchased by Taiwan-based Prime View International (now E Ink Holdings, Inc.)in mid-2009 for $215 Million. The CDMA Chip is from Qualcomm. The microprocessor was made by Freescale Semiconductor (Austin, Texas). In some models, WIFI is provided by Marvell.

A standard Kindle has a very good refresh rate for an electronic reader, and will display books beautifully, but it can't show you video. You would have to get the upgraded Kindle Fire, which has more tablet like functionality.

How do you create a collection on your Kindle?

First of all, you have to have the Kindle3 or, if yours is an older one, make sure it's updated.

For the Kindle2:

On your Home screen, go to the book you wish to add to your new collection. Push your 5-way-controller to the right. You'll be taken to a menu, and the first option is "Add to collection". Click on that, then choose "Create New Collection". Name your collection using the keyboard. Click Save. The book is now in the new collection. Click Done (on the lower side of the screen).

You can add more books in the same way, except instead of creating a new collection you can simply add them to the one you already created.

Will a Kindle 1 fit in Kindle 2 case?

Depends on the case design, but it will not be a snug fit since the K2 is a bit larger. Have you tried looking at some of the smaller manufacturer of Kindle covers? I've dealt with Joe V. Leather before and they custom fitted my K1 into one of their cases. Turn around was decent and price very affordable.

Not unless it's a very loose case (in which case, why bother?). If you look at pictures, the K1 and K2 are different in shape and size, so I'd say don't try.
