New Amazon Kindle sells out

Amazon‘s new eReader has sold out before it has even shipped to the public, according the retailer’s website

Amazon’s Kindle eReader has sold out before it was supposed to ship to the public tomorrow. The £109 device, which can store up to 3,500 books and access the internet via an “experimental” browser, will not now arrive with new customers until the middle of next month.

A statement on Amazon.co.uk said “Due to strong customer demand, Kindle is temporarily sold out. Order now to reserve your place in the queue. Orders are prioritised on a first-come, first-served basis. Orders placed today are expected to dispatch on or before September 17.” The device is also sold out on the company’s US website.

The company haD announced that two new, lighter and smaller versions of the Kindle would ship on August 27, retailing at £109 for a Wi-Fi only version and £149 for a 3G wireless version. The long-awaited launch follows the American launch of the original Kindle in November 2007. The ebook reader has subsequently been the top selling product on Amazon.com for the past two years.

The new device weighs 247g and offers improved page turning speed and contrast compared to the previous Kindle versions that have been available outside the UK. There will be no monthly fees for owners of the 3G device, which will use Vodafone’s network to download books in approximately a minute.

Although the Kindle screen only offers a black and white display, Amazon has released Kindle Apps for other devices including Apple’s iPad. Availability of these downloads is not affected.

  6. Thanks to the upcoming World Basketball Festival, we now get a “USA” Air Jordan 2010 Team. It seems as if more people like the Air Jordan 2010 Team than the original Air Jordan 2010 because of the windowless side panels. I’m not one of those people who likes the team better; I think the original
    Nike Shoes 2010 Shoes looks much better.Since this jordan Shoes Team is made for the USA team, the colorway should be clear. White can be seen on the side panels, toe, shoe laces, tongue, part of the midsole and the entire outsole. Navy blue covers the toe, heel, inner lining and above the midsole. Red accents appear on the tongue, toe, heel, lace panels and the midsole. The sneaker is constructed of perforated white leather with larger perforations placed on the side panels.
