Amazon may be having problems with new Kindle front light design

There have been rumors for some time that Amazon is working on a front-lit version of its black & white Kindle eReaders. A blog claimed to have actually seen a working prototype of a front-lit Kindle, shortly before Barnes & Noble launched its front-lit Nook Touch with GlowLight. However, DigiTimes' sources report that Amazon has told some of its parts vendors to stop shipments, and it may stop orders for E Ink displays through July and August, because of a problem with the design of its front light. If true, it suggests that Amazon won't be able to launch a front-lit eReader until late Q3 or Q4.
