The Amazon Kindle is a very popular electronic book reader in the US. The device lacks a colour display, and Wi-Fi but has still managed to grab 60% of the U.S market share. Now rumors suggest that Amazon is preparing a new improved version of the Amazon Kindle. The new Kindle is expected to go on sale in the month of August. Rumors suggest that the next generation electronic reader will be thinner than its predecessor, and faster as well. Engadget also reports that the next generation Amazon Kindle will feature Wi-Fi as well.
Other new rumored feature includes improved contrast sensitivity for better text readability. Sadly, the next generation Amazon Kindle is not expected to feature either touch screen or a color screen. The Amazon Kindle is facing tough competition from the Apple iPad. Apple has already managed to sell more than 2 million iPads worldwide in less than 60 days.
