Kindle News: Amazon Announces Third Generation of Kindle
      07/28/10 09:37 PM

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.
