Amazon: Kindle 2.0 this year? No way.
So! New Kindles this year
? No. Hell no. Quoth Amazon Chief Spokesman on the possibility of Kindle 2.0.
“Don’t believe everything you read,” Mr. Berman said. “There’s a lot of rumor and speculation about the Kindle. One thing I can tell you for sure is that there will be no new version of the Kindle this year. A new version is possible sometime next year at the earliest.”
John Biggs has already begun his self-flagellation and brine baths. As well he should
. You fooled us all, Mr. Biggs. Shame!
But it's just as well, really. The old Kindle hasn't even penetrated outside of America yet. And while a rumored 260,000 units have sold, and that's swell, it's also hardly gangbusters. Amazon should take their time, work out the cell contracts necessary to release a new Kindle in Europe, shore up their 1st Gen Kindle numbers and take their time on a less ghastly design. The world can wait for Kindle 2.0 until 2009... especially Kindle 1.0 early adopters.
