Amazon Kindle 2 by Q1 2009?


Techcrunch — who have been wrong about the Kindle 2 release date before — are trotting out the rumor again, this time for a release in early 2009.

According to Arrington, their earlier reports of a slimmer, longer Kindle with a less cubist keypad were not mistaken: Bezos himself stepped in at the last second to delay an October release due to changes in the software.

A longer textbook edition of the Kindle is also slated for 2009.

All very well and good, and if Arrington keeps on bumping up his guesses on release dates, one of them will be accurate sooner or later. I just wish Amazon would start talking about releasing Kindles abroad.
