Amazon clearing out Kindle inventory It appears that Amazon is preparing for a new line of Kindle devices, as current generation tablets and e-readers are disappearing from their site at a quick pace.
For example, the Kindle Keyboard Wi-Fi now shows as 'discontinued' on Amazon, with no units left.

Additionally, the Kindle Touch 3G is "currently unavailable," and the Wi-Fi Kindle Touch has a five-day shipping delay. If you want the discounted "Special Offers" version of the Kindle Touch, you are also out of luck as it has sold out.

Furthermore, Amazon has taken 40 percent off accessories on the base model Kindle if you use the Amazon Visa rewards card.

While the Kindle Fire remains in stock, Amazon is widely expected to launch the sequel device this month or next to better compete with the Google Nexus 7. Additionally, Amazon is also expected to unveil an e-Ink e-reader with a backlight to compete against the Nook Simple with Glow Light.
