Amazon Kindle Fire sold out with new model expected

NEW YORK — Amazon.com Inc. says it has sold out of its Kindle Fire tablet computer amid expectations of a new model for the holiday season.

The Internet retailer has a major press conference scheduled for Sept. 6 in Santa Monica, Calif. It is widely expected to reveal a new model of the Fire there, so Thursday’s announcement that the first model is ‘‘sold out’’ suggests that Amazon halted production a while ago to retool for a new model.
