What’s with the shock and confusion here? It seems pretty obvious to me that Amazon is gearing up for the launch of a new Kindle Touch with a built in screen light. Reuters reported on this back in May — they fucked up the date (July), but the info all sounds legit.
Amazon’s chief rival in the eReader space, Barnes & Noble, unveiled this in April. It’s a winning idea. Of course Amazon is going to follow suit. It’s not that complicated.
