The most logical step forward from the popular e-book reader Kindle, according to Amazon, would be a tablet device. Or so was what CEO Jeff Bezos hinted during an interview with Consumer Reports.
When asked if Amazon is currently looking to manufacture a tablet device, Bezos said simply, “Stay tuned.” He went on to say that if the company ever makes a tablet, it will be a supplement to Kindle, rather than a replacement for the e-book reader. “We will always be very mindful that we will want a dedicated reading device In terms of any other product introductions, I shouldn’t answer.”
Bezos was also quizzed over a color version of Kindle, to which he said that although progress is being on a color version of E Ink, it “is not ready for prime time…the colors are very pale.”
