Amazon Job Postings Hint At New Kindle

by Greg on February 10, 2010

We’re pretty sure that a new Kindle will be coming out sometime this year and there’s now some more news that hints towards this. Checking out the Amazon job postings board there are some job postings that would indicate that Amazon is up to something – most likely the new Kindle. For example, there is a posting for a “Hardware Display Manager” with one of the requirements being that the applicant should have a “Strong engineering background and have significant experience with the development of display technology for portable electronic consumer devices.” Another interesting requirement is “you will know the LCD business and key players in the market.”

So does this mean that the new Kindle will have a color LCD screen? Maybe it does. It seems pretty certain though, that something is going on at Amazon with their purchase of Touchco last week, these new job postings and new technology that’s available like the Mirasol display screens.

It’s been about a year now since the Kindle 2 came out so it wouldn’t be too surprising to see the Kindle 3 coming out later this year. The question I have is this. Is the next Kindle going to be a Kindle 3 to replace the Kindle 2 or will it be a totally new device to add to the Kindle team like the Kindle DX was last year?

Maybe the 4 will be color, I bought the 3 and it wasn’t so we are still waiting for the new hires to show their stuff.
