Rumor: Larger Kindle 3 in Late 2009

There is a rumor that Amazon is developing a new Kindle, Kindle 3 perhaps, that is larger and has touch capability with EPD (Electronic Paper Display) supplier PVI (Prime View International), who is the primary supplier of the EPD that was used for the original Kindle and for the new Kindle 2. The newer, larger, touch-enabled Kindle 3 is expected to be launched by the end of 2009. PVI is based in Taiwan and has a subsidiary in Korea that it bought last year, Hydis. Most likely Hydis will be manufacturing the larger EPDs for the new Kindle 3 as PVI is accelerating the transition of larger-sized EPD production to Hydis.
