Kindle News: Amazon Announces Third Generation of Kindle

Amazon today announced the third generation of their popular Kindle eReader series, which is expected to ship on August 27.

Here are some of the highlights:
  • All-New, High-Contrast E-Ink Screen: 50% better contrast than any other e-reader
  • New Sleek Design: 21% smaller body with same 6" size reading area
  • 15% Lighter: Only 8.7 ounces
  • Built-in WiFi: In addition to the 3G wireless, you can connect to WiFi hotspots
  • Double the Storage: Carry 3,500 books wherever you go
  • New Model, the Kindle WiFi: Taking a page from Barnes and Noble's eBook, the Kindle WiFi is less expensive and lacks 3G
  • Read Even in Bright Sunlight: No glare
  • Books in 60 Seconds: Think of a book and start reading it in 60 seconds. Kindle uses the same 3G wireless technology as advanced cell phones - but unlike cell phones, there are no monthly bills and no annual contracts
  • Battery Life of One Month: A single charge lasts up to one month.

The third generation Kindle and Kindle WiFi will cost $189 and $139, respectively, and are available for pre-order now at Amazon.com.
