About that cheaper, thinner, more stylish Kindle we were all hoping for? Yeah, doesn't look like it's going to happen . . . at least not this year, anyway. According to The New York Times, Amazon's chief spokesman, Craig Berman, had this to say about the rumors:

"Don’t believe everything you read, there’s a lot of rumor and speculation about the Kindle. One thing I can tell you for sure is that there will be no new version of the Kindle this year. A new version is possible sometime next year at the earliest."

This isn't the news I was hoping for. Considering the Kindle fever has died down, you'd think Amazon would be whipping up some sexier Kindles as we speak, just in time for the holidays.
