Is Apple going to release a new Kindle in March 2010?

Analyst Yair Reiner claims that Apple will ramp up production of the wonder-device in February 2010. He says that the Second Coming of the JesusTablet will be in March or April. Because Apple intends to offer 30/70 revenue split to book publishers, Reiner thinks it will kill Kindle. Right now, Amazon – who apparently has pissed off everyone in the book industry – offers 30/70 for exclusives and 50/50 the rest. Apple however will get 30% and give 70% for publishers for a non-exclusive distribution contract.

Analyst Yair Reiner says that Apple device will make “ebooks more relevant for education by simplifying functions such as scribbling marginalia.” Furthermore this new device will have the same screen technology of the iPhone but in a 10.1 – inch size, ironbarring the concept of a super-expensive OLED display.
