Kindle Colour launching by end of the year?

kindle-colour.jpgIt’s the rumour that just wont die, but the latest supply chain mutterings are again suggesting that Amazon are planning to launch a colour Kindle eReader before the end of the year.

And by colour eReader, we mean one with an E Ink screen, not an LCD like that already found in the Amazon Kindle Fire tablet. Not that you’d be able to find an Amazon Kindle Fire in the UK AT ALL, but you know what we mean…

So, it’s the often dubious rumour mongers over at DigiTimes this time stating that the Amaon Kindle Colour is on its way, citing supply chain sources who are pinning a lunch sometime after the Autumn of this year. The eReader will, like the Kindle Touch, have a multi-touch capacitive screen, and should be easier on the eye for long reading sessions than its tablet cousins, though likely with colours considerably more muted.

While we’re on the subject of Amazon devices, there’s still no word on a UK launch for the Kindle Fire, while the Kindle Fire 2 rumour…er…kindling is ready to ignite. Three different tablets are said to be coming from Jeff Bezos’ stable, one either 8.9 or 10 inches in size, and two differing 7 inch models.
