Amazon Kindle Tablets and Ereaders

Are You Buying a New Kindle?

Amazon unleashed a flurry of new Kindles earlier this morning, so in case you missed it, here's a quick recap:

  • Kindle Fire — The all-new Android-backed tablet from Amazon will come with a seven-inch screen, a dual-core processor, and WiFi. It's priced at $199 and will be available Nov. 15.
  • Kindle Touch — The new (and unexpected) Kindle Touch will come with a six-inch infrared multitouch eInk display and the ability to loan books from your local library, and it will come in two models — WiFi-only for $99 including special offers on your screensaver, and $139 without offers, and WiFi + 3G for $149 with special offers, and $189 without special offers. All versions will be available on Nov. 21.
  • Kindle — A brand-new version of the Kindle is available today, which comes with a smaller and lighter body than the previous Kindle editions, comes with WiFi connectivity, and has free cloud storage for backing up your books and documents. You can get a Kindle for as low as $79 if you opt for the model that displays special offers on your screensaver, and $109 without special offers.

Amazon is releasing these devices at the perfect time, right before the frenzy of the holiday shopping season. Tell me — will you be buying a new Kindle? If so, which one?

I love my current Kindle, but the Touch sounds really neat. If I have the money and the touch tech is stable, I'll probably spring for it, but not until next year. No Fire for me, though. I love E-Ink for reading and I don't have any interests in magazines. As for movies and TV, amazon's new streaming options are promising, but I'll only use them through my TV or PC. I want my reading device to ONLY be my reading device.

in the same vote as @stylinfab queen not to mention (while tablets are cool) when I want to read I really have to stick to a reading device... to many other elements distract me, make me wander from the intent. :|

not really buying one, just wanted to vote and "not really buying one" was not an option. ;) I'm going to wait it out like the rest of new tech. I use to be an early adopter and it's just proven to expensive to maintain. Sides, the "next" one is always better.
