New Leak Reveals the Next Amazon Kindle
The Verge has gotten a second set of leaked images today, this time showing a new Kindle Touch. As you can see from the gallery below, this ereader loses the button on the existing model and appears to replace it with a button which spells out Kindle.
According to the label in one of the renders this is the paperwhite Kindle. I can’t see much about this device, but if the screenshot in one of the product renders is correct I don’t think this model has sound. You can see the bottom edge in one of the product renders, and while it’s awfully fuzzy there doesn’t appear to be a spot for the headphone jack. That’s a couple of rather curious details because the Kindle which cleared the FCC a couple weeks back was tested with headphones. And in another image one of the listed features is an integrated light, so if this is real then it could be the front-lit Kindle we’ve been waiting for.
In any case, I’m looking forward to seeing this device (or not, as the case may be) next week at Amazon’s launch event.
