Amazon has big plans for the Kindle
The Kindle has been a huge success. With that success, some copycats have emerged. Some of those plan to have a larger screen. So, to keep up, Amazon is planning to develop another Kindle according to the WSJ. Supposedly this comes from people who have seen a version of the device. This one would have “a larger screen”.
The idea is that the bigger screen would make it easier for newspaper companies to easily transition their content to a large form e-reader. No comment from Amazon which is not surprising. What’s surprising is that the report gives the device at least a chance of debuting before the 2009 holiday season.
