If Amazon stays true to form, they will release at least one new Kindle in 2019. It will have a screen and Wifi, and will be black. That is about all we can say about it with any certainty (and I may be going out on a limb when predicting the color), and that leaves a lot of room for speculation.
So tell me, what do you think the new Kindle will be like?
My guess is that Amazon will launch either a new basic Kindle or a new premium model (or both). It’s been three years since the last basic Kindle shipped, so it could be time for Amazon’s cheapest ereader to be refreshed. And speaking of product cycles, two years have passed since the second Kindle Oasis was released, and five years since the Kindle Voyage were launched, while last year we got a new Paperwhite. One could say it’s time for a new premium model as well.
What do you think it will be like? Will it be larger than the 7″ Kindle Oasis? Could it have a folding screen? Do you suppose Amazon will finally add a color-changing frontlight?
