Amazon is Out of Touch – Literally
Amazon is out of stock of Wi-Fi Kindle Touch devices along with the Kindle Touch 3G.
According to Gizmodo, a couple of weeks ago Amazon sold the Kindle DX as their Deal of the Day (at a 29% discount). Gizmodo also reported that every single Lightning Deal that day was Kindle related – 16 deals in all. It appears Amazon is clearing out their stock to make room for the rumored new and improved Kindles.
Morally, ethic’lly, spiritually, physically, positively, absolutely, undeniably and reliably — PREDICTABLE
If Amazon replaces the Touch devices, the new ones will most likely come with a glowlight similar to the Nook from Barnes & Noble. Rumored improvements for the Kindle Fire 2 include a display of 1280×800 and a metal frame. It is also speculated that the new Kindle Fire 2 will be thinner and lighter than the original while sporting a built-in camera. Hopefully it comes with an SD Card slot.
All Things Digital is reporting that the biggest rumor, a 10″ tablet code named ‘Hollywood’, is not a sure thing for September 6th. Several unnamed sources have told All Things Digital that while a larger Kindle Fire is in the works, it’s not clear if it’s ready to be introduced yet.
Lemme rephrase that – So several anonymous sources regarding the rumored tablet with a code name are saying that it’s not a for sure thing that the rumored code named tablet is ready. Any questions?
Perhaps Amazon are deciding whether to name it Kindle Fire DX or Kindle Fire Metal Frame Volume Buttons Extra Large Screen.
No matter the amount of rumors, hearsay, conspiracy theories, whispers, anonymous sources, intrigue, secrecy or clandestine bloggers — I’ll simply wait until September 6th to see what Amazon has to offer.
