Amazon has announced the release of a new version of the Kindle Reader at the new lower price point of $139 for a Wi-Fi only model.
The all-new Kindle model has a new electronic-ink screen with 50 percent better contrast than any other e-reader, a new sleek design with a 21 percent smaller body while still keeping the same 6-inch-size reading area, and a 15 percent lighter weight at just 8.7 ounces. The new Kindle also offers 20 percent faster page turns, up to one month of battery life, double the storage to 3,500 books, built-in Wi-Fi, and a graphite color option.
Trading the 3G wireless feature for a new lower price point makes a lot of sense to me, and would even persuade me to buy one for reading mostly around the house, although i still find the Kindle Reader app on iPhone more contenient for reading on the go.
You can pre-order now for delivery on the August 27 release date.
