Kindle 3 Predictions

by Greg on February 5, 2010

I’ve been running across some Kindle 3 predictions the past few days or so. This isn’t too surprising especially with the unveiling of the iPad and the latest news of Amazon purchasing Touchco, a company that creates touchscreen technology.

Over at Ireaderreview they made a post about their Kindle 3 predictions. They predict that the Kindle 3 will come out either in February or March – if there are incremental improvements or it will come out in July or August with lots of major improvements. If any of these two end up being correct my guess is that it would be July or August, especially after yesterdays news of Amazon purchasing Touchco.

I’m sure that there will be a new Kindle out this year especially to compete against the iPad. They’ll probably make it available by Christmas. My guess is that since Amazon just purchased Touchco, it’s probably going to take a little while to get everything in order and get a new product out so I’m thinking maybe September or October. Any other predictions out there? What kind of improvements do you think the new Kindle will have? What improvements do you want?

I think it will at least have a touchscreen, maybe color and hopefully it’ll have folders so we can organize our books. We shall see.

I thought we got an email before the end of last year from someone at Amazon saying we’d have some sort of organizing capabilities coming up (as a download update).. was I dreaming?

I’d really like to have a way to organize everything. I don’t think I care all that much whether I have touch or even color really.

I would like the cover of the book to download and
come up first each time I return to the book. May sound crazy but I like to see the cover!

I’d like to have lending books between kindles like the Nook has for a 2 week period.
