Amazon Planning a Color E-Reader?

Andrew Webster reports for The Verge:

News out of China suggests that Amazon will be adding a device with a six-inch, color E Ink screen to its Kindle lineup. Chinese newspaper the Economic Daily News is reporting that Massachusetts-based E Ink Corporation has landed an order from Amazon for an estimated three million color e-reader modules per month, with shipments expected to begin in March.

Whether or not this proves to be accurate for the coming months, I have little doubt that color e-ink displays will find their way into Kindles and Nooks in the next product cycle or two.
