The color Kindle’s not coming any time soon

Amazon held their shareholders meeting today, and Jeff Bezos dropped a few hints about the future of the Kindle. The bit about the color screen isn't really news if you were keeping track of the screen manufacturers. None of the new screen tech is anywhere near ready for market.

Here is what Jeff said (according to Market Watch):

"The Kindle will compete with these LCD devices like the iPad by being a very focused product," Bezos said at the meeting, which was webcast. "Serious readers are going to want a purpose-built device, because it's an important activity for them."

...

One shareholder asked Bezos when the Kindle might be available with a color screen. He said the ability to offer "high-quality color" on reflective displays "is still some ways out."

Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
