The Kindle rumor machine seems to be on again, this time with claims that no new Kindle will be available this year. This time it seems to be a bit more legitimate as it is coming from Amazon officials. I personally can’t believe Amazon missing on the opportunity to cash in before the year’s end, when people are more likely to spend the kind of money Amazon will be asking for the new Kindle. But at the same time, it wouldn’t surprise me if Amazon holds off till the new year to get the launch process right this time around. Watch this space for more updates.
