A new Amazon Kindle release date has been hinted at as Amazon cuts the price of its current eReader

Amazon has slashed the price of refurbished Kindle eReaders in the US igniting speculation that the online retailer is preparing the imminent launch of the next-generation Kindle.

As reports reveal Amazon has dropped the price of refurbished Kindles in the US to just $99 and $129 for the Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi +3G models respectively rumours have once again kicked into overdrive suggesting the retailer is to launch the fourth generation Kindle eReader ahead of the Christmas shopping rush.

Earlier reports had hinted at a new Kindle landing from Amazon ahead of Christmas with touchscreen controls one of the hotly tipped inclusions for the next-gen device.

Also expect from Amazon ahead of the Christmas rush is the Amazon tablet release date with the company’s first tablet, a mooted 10-inch Android affair, reported as being lined up for October.

Will Android launch a new Kindle ahead of Christmas or is its current eReader dominant enough not to need a new model? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
