New Amazon Ereader and Kindle Fire Tablets

Are You Buying Any of Amazon's New Kindle Offerings?

Amazon revealed updates to the Kindle ereaders and its line of Kindle Fire tablets this week, so in case you missed it, here's a quick recap:

  • Kindle Fire HD — The popular Kindle Fire tablet now has HD capabilities, bigger storage capacities, and two screen sizes to choose from. The seven-inch tablet starts at $199 and will be available Sept. 14. The 8.9-inch tablet makes it debut Nov. 20 and has pricing from $299 for a WiFi model to $599 for the 4G LTE Wireless version.
  • Next-Gen Kindle Fire — Available Sept. 14, the next-generation Kindle Fire includes many of the same features as its predecessor, but with a lower $159 price point, faster processing speed, and longer battery life.
  • Kindle Paperwhite — After the Nook Glowlight's debut, it makes sense that Amazon would unveil their own version of a back-lit ereader with the touchscreen Kindle Paperwhite. At less than eight ounces in weight, it makes use of the Kindle Touch X-ray feature and includes the new ability to estimate how much reading time is left in a book. Available Oct. 1, the Kindle Paperwhite WiFi model will cost $119, and the 3G version, which requires no data contract or plan, will be priced at $179.
  • Next-Gen Kindle — The entry-level ereader got a small revamp with a 15 percent faster page-turn speed, new fonts, crisper text, and a price drop — it's now available for $69.

What Kindle will I buy? Get real, stupid! None! Not now, not ever! Not tomorrow, not next week, not next month, not next year, not next decade, not next century! They can take their forced ads and their opt-out fees and put them right where the sun doesn't shine. Amazon, go take a long walk off a short pier!
