Is this the new Kindle?

The New Amazon Kindle?

The New Amazon Kindle?

Rumour has it that this is the new Amazon Kindle, the follow-up to their first E-book reader (that has still not yet been released in the UK).  The photos were leaked on a mobilereads forum yesterday.  According to the source of the leak, the reader is set to cost $359 (around £250) and is due for a US release on 24th February.  Should this make it onto the market over here, the ebook market could get very interesting indeed.

  1. No, more expensive than the Sony Reader which is interesting. Think the price may need to be a little more competitive to succeed. Although I suspect that come the time it hits the UK market it may well drop slightly in price – particularly due to the economic situation. They’re probably not going to shift that many units at £250 when the Sony version is under £200. I think as the consoles have proven, the sub-£200 mark is key for sales.

Tell me what you think...
