If you recall, a few weeks back there was a rumor circulating that Amazon was set to launch a new Kindle, a college friendly Kindle at that. Although there’s nothing in these ‘spy’ shots to confirm that particular rumor, it does solidify the notion that Amazon is refreshing its Kindle, but perhaps for worse. How so you ask? They’ve done away with the SD card slot, tossed in an iPhone battery job (not user accessible) and no more leather casing. It still rock EVDO, a good chunk of memory and they’ve added USB charging and rounded corners. Rounded corners! I knew Amazon has something in their war chest.
