The next generation Kindle aka Kindle 2 already leaked in October of last year. Amazon yet again had severe issues to meet demand for the Kindle last Holiday shopping season. Right now Amazon states a shipping time frame of 4-6 weeks for the Kindle. CNET reports today that they received an invite to an important Amazon press-conference. Their guess is that Amazon will unveil the Kindle 2 in that event on February 9th in New York.
Apparently the invite is not going into specifics on what Amazon is going to announce, but the location has a book context.
I still think Amazon handles the selling of Kindle rather poorly. After Oprah recommended the Kindle and gave a $50 coupon for it, Kindle basically sold out within days and it was not available any more for the remainder of the Holiday shopping season.
I dearly hope Amazon now will handle the launch of the Kindle 2 better and will have enough stock to satisfy demand. Better yet maybe Amazon is going to announce that they will open up Kindle and let the big electronics companies like LG and Samsung build the hardware and get back to just selling the reader and the content.
