“Speaking Tuesday at the online retailer’s annual shareholder meeting in Seattle, founder and CEO Jeff Bezos said that adding color to the Kindle’s ‘electronic ink’ display is a difficult technical challenge and that a color screen is ‘still a long way out,'” AP reports. “Bezos said he’s seen things ‘in the laboratory’ that are ‘still not ready for prime-time production.'”
AP reports, “As usual, Bezos did not detail how many Kindles Amazon has sold since the product launched in 2007, except to say customers have bought ‘millions’ of them.”

MacDailyNews Take: People have bought “millions” of Zunes, too. Obviously, you can find a couple million morons who’ll buy just about anything.

Bezos can’t detail Kindle unit sales if he wants to continue to attempt to perpetrate his illusion of success. However, it appears that reality may finally be starting to dawn on him.
Note to the eleven people waiting to buy color Kindles: Now you can go get those Apple iPads you want so badly! (If you can find one left to buy.)
Amazon should focus all of their attention on their Kindle software for Apple hardware than on Kindle hardware going forward. – MacDailyNews Take, January 05, 2010
