New Kindle Launching Tomorrow

Amazon to Release $140 Kindle Starting Tomorrow

According to an article from the Wall Street Journal, Amazon is set to launch two new versions of its widely popular Kindle tomorrow. Both versions will be 21 percent smaller (but will maintain a 6-inch screen), come with a crisper display and increased grayscale contrast, two color options (graphite and white), and launch at two different price points: $190 for a 3G version and $140 for a WiFi-only version.

You can begin placing orders for both versions tomorrow on Amazon, and the ereaders will begin shipping on Aug. 27 to 140 countries. I suppose this explains the case of the missing Kindle on Amazon's website and could solidify the company's lead against the competition.

I guessed that they were finally releasing the new Kindle. Did you notice that they also dropped the price of the DX? Not sure if they did that when they released the new one or if it just happened today, but it's down $100 to $379. I'm guessing the DX will eventually come down to an even lower price point int he future. I think it might be time to upgrade to a newer Kindle.
