While this latest bit is still firmly in the rumor category, there is some chatter about a Kindle with a color display. The details are coming by way of a Digitimes report who are citing the vague sounding “industry sources.” That said, according to what has been reported, Amazon is “likely” to launch a color Kindle during the second half of the year. Further details note that this new color Kindle will use a multi-touch capacitive display as opposed to the infrared touch panels we currently see in the Kindle. Of course, without an announcement (or confirmation) from Amazon, it looks like we are left waiting. So, how about it, is anyone interested in a Kindle with a color display? Or does the Kindle Fire already sort of fill that niche.
