An out of stock message often does not mean all that much aside from the fact that the item is out-of-stock, however when you combine a popular item with an upcoming press announcement from the company — you may be on to something. Anyway, that seems to be the case with the Kindle Touch. Both the 3G model and the Wi-Fi only models are out-of-stock at the moment and are showing as “currently unavailable.” Maybe a bit more telling for those who like reading into things, that unavailable note is followed by this;
“We don’t know when or if this item will be back in stock.”
Hmmm, things look to be shaping up nicely for a Kindle announcement come September 6th. Of course, the interesting part here, up until now the speculation for the event was pointing towards a new Kindle Fire. As of now it is looking like we may see something Kindle and something Kindle Fire related.
