According to a Saturday report in Bloomberg News, the world’s biggest online retailer Amazon. com is likely coming up with a thinner version of its Kindle e-reader in August, as per the information forwarded by two ‘inside’ sources.
Reports are in that Amazon is planning to introduce a new version of its popular eBook reader in August, one that is thinner, boasts better contrast and offers faster page turning. The downside is that it will not be a touchscreen device, nor will it offer color. While this device might lack a color touchscreen display, we still have high hopes for a Kindle that will offer such features in the future, especially since Amazon has acquired the company Touchco back in February, a company that specializes in color touchscreen technology.
Amazon released a free e-book reader application for the iPad on Friday, offering Apple fans access to hundreds of thousands of books. Amazon claimed the application will complement the Kindle reader.
