The other two additions are both new e-ink readers. Both will sport 6” Pearl e-ink displays and faster page turns than previous version Kindles. The Kindle Touch will have an infrared touchscreen and 4GB of storage (enough for 3,000 books), and will come in wifi only and wifi + 3G versions for $99 and $149 respectively. The new basic Kindle will offer a 5-way button for navigation and keyboard input and no 3G option and be priced at $79.
All of Amazon’s e-readers now come with “special offers” – ads that appear as your screen saver, but do not appear when you are actually reading. You can opt for the ad-free model for an additional $30-$40 depending on the model.
