The Kindle 3 is just a few months away according to a report on Bloomberg yesterday. The as yet unconfirmed launch date this August is a direct response by Amazon to anticipated competition from Apple’s recently released iPad.
The Kindle 3, a dedicated e-book reading device, will not feature a colour screen like the iPad. Only this week Amazon supremo, Jeff Bezos, described a colour screen for the Kindle as ‘some ways out’. The new device is expected to feature sharper screen quality, responsiveness and performance, as well as being thinner than the current Kindle 2.
