Amazon last week announced plans to host a press event on September 5. Considering the tech world has been talking about a Kindle Fire 2 since the launch of the original Kindle Fire, the general assumption was that the event was going to be a Kindle Fire 2 unveiling. However, today it emerged that the Kindle Touch is out of stock online, which has sparked talked that Amazon is going to announce a new version of that next week.
Engadget points to Amazon U.S., where both the Wi-Fi and 3G versions of the device are sold out. They're still available as used products, but if you want a new one, you'll have to hit up brick and mortar stores and hope you get lucky.
It's not impossible that Amazon would announce both a Kindle Fire 2 and a new Kindle Touch. After all, when the company unveiled the original Kindle Fire, the company also launched the Kindle Touch, and the regular Kindle. Could next week be another bumper event with multiple new Kindles?
