Front-Lit Kindle from Amazon to Debut in July?
Rumours from upgrades of Kindle are a dime a dozen, and a lot are not from the most esteemed of sources. Only one fresh report sounds pretty probably: Amazon could release a version front-lit Kindle eReader at July, and a new model of their Kindle Fire color tablet finisher to the holiday season, Reuters reports.
The new Kindle eReader could keep on an E-Ink display just add a front light, states Reuters, referring an nameless source on “direct knowledge from the subject.” The source expected to stay nameless due to Amazon has yet to herald the product.
Amazon’s determination to trade a front-lit Kindle eReader is a no-brainer, especially since challenger Barnes & Noble last month has already started shipping their front-lit Nook Simple Touch With GlowLight. Amazon could either continue the current costs from its Kindle e-Readers or raise them slimly to offset another output costs from the front lighting, based on source from Reuters.
An illuminated display resolves among the heaviest defects of current Kindle eReaders: Reading at dark environments, like in bed at night, needs an source of external light. Of course, a bedside lamp could do and several marketers trade aftermarket lights that snip onto the Kindle eReaders. Just a lighted screen with an on/off alternate could be far handier.
Source from Reuters did not unveil a lot about the Kindle Fire 2nd-generation, other than to tell it will have a bigger 8.9-inch display and had better get in eventually to the holiday shopping season.
The source told Amazon was probably to keep prices as is, or rise Amazon Kindle eReaders frontlit with a very little margin, if the least bit.
And what about that Kindle eReader color we have been hearing of? Amazon likely will not launch one this year, maybe due to there are still a couple of technical vaults to be straightened out.
