Folks the current Amazon Kindle backorder list might be getting an upgrade offer real soon. Stephen Windwalker, a Kindle book author, explains that the Amazon is gearing up for the Kindle 2. The updated eBook reader should be introduced on Monday at a press event.

So what happens if you ordered a Kindle but don’t have it yet? Steven says that Amazon will offer a chance to upgrade to the newer device at a small price increase. He says to expect roughly a 10% bump, which is around $35 at today’s Kindle pricing. If true, I figure Amazon will launch the device at the $399, which is the first Kindle’s original price; it later dropped to the current $359.

  1. $400 is still too expensive and I read all the time. Until it hits $200 and that white border that takes up inches of screen space is removed, I’m playing like a free agent and holding out… Call me a traditionalist, but going to the bookstore and getting 30 books for the same price still wins.

  2. I’m interested in buying if it comes out here (Australia). Net access on the device for reading things like RSS feeds would be quite a nice addition to ebooks. Something no reader available here currently does. Unless you include that one with the wacom screen, which has wifi but isn’t terribly good.
