Amazon Kindle Touch out of stock, possible launch hints

Stock reduction ahead of Amazon press conference

The Kindle Touch is currently not available on the Amazon.com store, leading to suggestions that it may be replaced by something new. Pages for both the Wi-Fi and 3G editions display the message "Currently unavailable. We don't when or if this item will be back in stock" while other Kindle products remain unaffected by shortages.

With a press conference scheduled for September 6th in California, the sudden lack of stock for both Kindle Touch devices adds fuel to the speculation fire, where many have suggested some sort of product refresh is in the works. The Amazon conference last year showed off the Kindle Fire, its first attempt at a tablet.

Suggestions for what Amazon may show off that the conference include both back-lit and front-lit versions of the Kindle, a range of Kindle Fire tablets in different sizes, and ad-supported models. It won't be known which it will be, if any, until Amazon's event takes place, or a product leak occurs. [via Engadget]
