Amazon: no new Kindle this year

Updated e-book reader may appear in 2009

Amazon has denied that it will be releasing a new version of its Kindle digital book reader.

Reports had been rife that Amazon was planning to introduce two new models in October this year, one slightly larger and one slightly smaller than the current version of the Kindle.

However, the company has claimed there will be no new models, this year at least.

Amazon spokesman Craig Berman told the New York Times: "Don't believe everything you read, there's a lot of rumour and speculation out there about Kindle".

"One thing I can tell you for sure is that there will be no new version of Kindle this year. A new version will come out sometime next year at the earliest."
