Amazon has a lot of surprises in store for us today. It has launched not only its new Android tablet – the Amazon Kindle Fire – but also 3 new versions of the Kindle ebook reader.
When the Kindle was originally launched, it was a great deal. Amazon slashed the price over the years and now the new Kindles start at just $79, which makes them irresistible.
This will be the new standard Kindle. It will be priced at $79, and will be the cheapest version available.
Amazon has done away with the keyboard and made it much more compact. It comes with a standard 6 inch e-ink display, with 2 GB of internal storage. It will also support Wi-Fi and sports a 5 way controller for navigation.
Amazon Kindle Touch
This will be the touchscreen version of the Kindle. It will come with a 6 inch e-ink, touchscreen display with no physical controls. It will sport 4 GB of internal storage, and will come with Wi-Fi only. It will retail for $199.
Amazon Kindle Touch 3G
This will be the 3G version of the Amazon Kindle Touch. Exactly identical to the Kindle Touch, except for the price and connectivity options. It will sport Wi-Fi as well as 3G, and will be priced at $149.
