Amazon reportedly aiming to launch front-lit Kindle in July

  • Amazon will reportedly launch new models of its Kindle e-reader and tablet in July.

    The latest versions include a monochrome e-reader with front lighting, according to an unnamed source who has seen the prototype.

    The current Kindle requires readers to buy an external attachable light in order to read in the dark.

    Amazon’s new tablet, the Kindle Fire, is reportedly expected to have a bigger diagonal display of 8.9 inches, bringing it closer to the size of rival Apple's iPad.
