Bezos: Color version of Kindle is "multiple years" away

The story, by is here.  The statement was made at Amazon's annual shareholders meeting in Seattle.

In the meantime, Plastic Logic is demo'g its business model due out in 2010 and a flexible display version. Here's a video of the demo by Plastic Logic's CEO Richard Archuletta.  Here's another video demo at D7.

Engadget's Joshua Topolsky reports some "lust" for this large grayscale reader:
"... but we noted a fairly slow screen refresh (way slower than the Kindle), which is kind of a downer -- along with that fairly distant 2010 launch date..."
  Also, though it will have WiFi and built-in 3G data capability, a report May 10 on, in part, a talk by Plastic Logic's Sarah Geata, reminded us that Plastic Logic doesn't plan to have email or a web browser on this. Below are ways to Share this post if you'd like others to see it.

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
