Amazon Kindle Readers Must Wait For Color Screens

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos met with shareholders this week, telling the world that readers will have to wait for a color Kindle screen.

MarketWatch has the scoop: “Asked by a shareholder at the meeting about the iPad, Bezos said the Kindle will compete by remaining focused on readers … One shareholder asked Bezos when the Kindle might be available with a color screen. He said the ability to offer ‘high-quality color’ on reflective displays ‘is still some ways out.'”

In addition, Bezos told his shareholders that “millions” of Kindles have been sold. As MarketWatch noted, some are concerned about the impact the iPad will have on Kindle sales. (Via Gizmodo)
