Amazon Selling So Many Kindles You Can't Buy One

UPDATE: I was totally wrong! I’ll think twice before taking the company at its word from now on…
Alternate theory: Amazon (AMZN) has stopped selling the Kindle because it’s about to release a new one jam-packed with astounding features. But my hunch is that Amazon is being upfront when it says on its site that its $189 model is temporarily out of stock. If you absolutely must buy a Kindle today, though, Amazon is happy to sell you one of the super-sized DX models, starting at $359. The new one with a new color goes for $379.
