The Kindle Fire Is Sold Out

The Kindle Fire is sold out, Amazon says. Oh that's funny. Maybe that means we will get those new Amazon tablets next week after all.

We've been anticipating a refresh for a while, and Amazon announced this morning that its best-selling device is no longer available. There's an Amazon event next week, so perhaps we'll have some new stuff to fawn over in a few days. What exactly might that be? We're coming up on the one-year anniversary of the launch of the original Kindle Fire, so we're anticipating a possible second-gen 7-inch Kindle Fire, in addition to a brand new 10-inch Kindle Fire, as well as front-lit Kindle Touches. We'll be at the Amazon shindig next Thursday with all the news. [Amazon]
