Amazon Still Waiting for Kindle 2.0 Ugly Paint to Dry

Amazon’s next-generation Kindle e-book reader may be significantly thinner than its predecessor. It may boast an improved screen and a more intuitive interface. It might be a little less ugly. It could even be “the device Amazon wanted to release in the first place,” as some reports have claimed. But it will not arrive at market in October as rumored. Nor will it arrive before Christmas. In fact, Kindle 2.0 won’t debut in 2008 at all, according to Amazon (AMZN) spokesman Craig Berman. “Don’t believe everything you read,” Berman told the New York Times. “There’s a lot of rumor and speculation about the Kindle. One thing I can tell you for sure is that there will be no new version of the Kindle this year. A new version is possible sometime next year at the earliest.”

It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
