New Amazon Kindle e-book readers on the way?


According to some inside information, two new Amazon Kindle e-book readers are coming as soon as October.

One of the new Kindle’s will reportedly feature:

  • Same size screen as the first Kindle (6-inch grayscale display with 600 x 800 resolution and 167 ppi)
  • Smaller form factor than current model
  • Improved interface over current model

The new Kindle will reportedly look a lot sleeker, with the source saying that Amazon has “skipped three or four generations” with the new look.

The second new Kindle, not expected to be out until next year, will be shaped more like an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper and will be noticeably larger than the current model.

Both models will be available in multiple colors and be aimed at younger readers.
