Kindle Finally In Stock

Amazon has without fanfare begun carrying regular stock of its self-made Kindle e-book reader. The device now reportedly ships immediately from the online store and appears to at least temporarily end the continued shortage of the reader, which Amazon has attributed to demand outstripping supply. The company's e-paper screen supplier, PVI, has recently said it would double its output in part to handle Amazon's order load.

The price of the Kindle is unchanged from its $399 launch price and continues to supply free, subsidized EVDO cellular Internet access through Sprint for purchasing e-books online as well as basic web browsing and e-mail use. Amazon hasn't formally commented on the fresh supply and has not said whether it expects the supply level to remain stable in the near future.
