Kindle Colour expected by Christmas

Two completely independent sources have today given strong hints that a colour e-ink Kindle is going to be hitting Amazon's virtual shelves by the end of the year. A report on 'as often wrong as right' Taiwan-based news site, Digitimes, mentioned but not linked to by The Register, cites unnamed "Taiwanese contract-manufacturer moles" in their claim that a full colour e-ink display with a multi-touch overlay will be coming our way in the second half of the year.

Almost simultaneously, an Amazon insider tells us that not only can we expect the Kindle Fire on UK shores this year, but an entirely NEW Kindle device will be released in major markets in the US and Europe by Christmas. When pressed they went on to suggest that it'll be an e-ink based piece of hardware that is "significantly better" than anything we've seen before and will enable the Kindle to "beat any tablet out there for both text and graphics reproduction of the printed word".

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
