A popular e-book reading device is sold out. Amazon says its Kindle e-reader is temporarily out of stock.

The web retailer sold out of the least-expensive model of the device which sells for $189. Some industry analysts believe it might be a sign that Amazon is about to launch a new model.

The more expensive Kindle DX remains in stock.

Amazon's website says it will e-mail customers who want the Kindle as soon as it determines when it can fill new orders.
