We knew that there would be some Kindle releases this year, after all, as with many consumer electrical devices today, Amazon likes to issue a yearly refresh. This time around, there have been suggestions of a Kindle Fire 2, with an improved display and all-round specs, Kindle e-readers that may feature LED front-lighting and, we know that colour e-ink displays are now widely available, should the firm wish to make use of them.
What we didn't know was exactly when some of these products may be released, however, recent changes on the Amazon US and UK websites signal that a release may be immanent. It has been noted that over the weekend, the Kindle Keyboard WiFi has disappeared completely from existence and that the 3G variant has been heading in-and-out of stock, suggesting a winding-down of production.
There's no exact science to Amazon's Kindle release dates, only that they take place around this time of year, typically ranging from any time now, up to October. The real question for us here in the UK is, will we see the Kindle Fire 2, or receive leftovers of the original Kindle Fire from the US? Only time will tell, though hopefully it'll spill its beans fairly soon.
