"Amazon CFO: New Kindle will wait until 2009
Here's the full text of the blurb:
"Amazon's third-quarter earnings call had plenty of positive things to say about their success with the Kindle e-book reader. Good thing the company's happy with it, because it'll be the one and only Kindle for the remainder of the year.
CFO Tom Szkutak confirmed during this afternoon's call that there will be no newer model of the Kindle reader until 2009.
Amazon's third-quarter earnings met previous guidance, but share prices were down in after-hours trading. Fourth-quarter guidance, which Szkutak notes depends heavily on the currently volatile market and the strength of the dollar, indicates net sales growth of between 6 and 23 percent year-over-year.
