Amazon just announced an all-new Kindle e-reader for $79, which features a 20% faster processor, twice the storage, and a touch interface. The new Kindle removes the buttons from the previous generation ebook reader, while costing $10 more, but keeps the same 6-inch screen size.
Kindle’s touchscreen interface makes it easier to use features like X-Ray, Goodreads, built-in dictionary, highlighting, and more. And with a glare-free screen that looks like real paper, you can read as easily in bright sunlight as in your living room
Kindle uses actual ink particles and proprietary, hand-built fonts to create crisp text similar to what you see in a physical book. The blacks and whites on the screen are uniform, improving text and image quality.
Price and Availability
The new Kindle will be available October 2, 2014 for $79 in black. Pre-orders accepted now.
