Will Amazon delay new Kindle shipments? According to sources, Amazon may have to delay shipments of its upcoming generation of Kindle devices.
Apparently, mass production is being delayed due to issues with the device's front-light design.

If the issues are not resolved, the device will have to be delayed until later in the third quarter, say the same sources.

The front-light design, which was introduced earlier this year by Barnes & Noble with their Nook Simple (with GlowLight), allows for illumination in low-light areas. Amazon will need to match the game-changing feature, and fast.

Reports indicate that Amazon has been forced to stop some parts shipments while the issues are worked out.

I think I'll just stick with my pencil and paper and flashlight to see in the dark.
