Amazon Kindle Touch Ereader

Amazon Announces $99 Kindle Touch

Jeff Bezos revealed a new Kindle this morning at a press conference in NYC. The Kindle Touch looks to be about the same size as the previous generation, but it will come sans keyboard but with an infrared touch eInk display — the infrared layer will sit on top of your eInk display so it doesn't interfere with reading. Additionally, the Kindle Touch will include free cloud storage and come stocked with a new "X-ray" feature that will show relevant info on the page (like dictionary and Wiki entries). The Kindle Touch will also be lighter than previous models, and store up to 3,000 titles on its on-board 4GB of memory, but also comes with free backups with Amazon's cloud storage.

There will be a few price points to consider: the Kindle Touch will run at $99 with WiFi while the 3G version will be priced at $149. You can preorder now; shipping will start Nov. 21.
