A new Kindle eBook reader dubbed Kindle 3 was rumored just a week after Kindle 2 started shipping on February 23rd. Back then the rumor already said that the new Kindle 3 scheduled for Fall would have a bigger screen. The NY Times features a story today claiming that sources indicate that Amazon is releasing a big screen Kindle this week. Update: Amazon has just sent out invitations for a media event scheduled for Wednesday. New Kindle 3 is to be expected. (Via Engadget).

The new Kindle 3 would be aimed at displaying newspapers, magazines and possibly textbooks. As reported the Hearst the publisher of Cosmo and many other publications is planning a large format eBook reader.
Amazon will surely do everything they can to keep their first mover advantage in the electronic paper market. The Kindle has been slowly establishing itself as the most complete eBook experience. A larger version of the Kindle would not really do the trick to be appealing for reading magazines and newspapers. A color ePaper screen would help, but pricing of the device will be a huge factor as well.

As mentioned before eBook and eMagazine readers are only going to go main stream if you can roll them up or fold them like real paper.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
