Amazon Releases New Kindle & Kindle Kids, Available for Pre-Order

Amazon Releases New Kindle & Kindle Kids

Amazon on Tuesday announced a new entry-level $99 Kindle e-reader (affiliate link). The new device also has several improvements over the prior model that launched three years ago.

The biggest change is the display, which is much sharper than the earlier $89 Kindle. The sharpness is now on a par with Amazon’s more expensive $140 Kindle Paperwhite. The new Kindle also comes with double the storage, 16 GB (up from 8 GB), which should be sufficient for most people. The new Kindle also has a backlight, but it doesn’t have some of the more advanced backlight features in the Kindle Paperwhite, and is not water-resistant.

The new Kindle has the newer USB-C charger, which is the more common port used by Android phones, Apple tablets and other devices nowadays.

Amazon also introduced a new Kindle Kids (affiliate link) model with similar upgrades today. Both devices are available for preorder beginning Tuesday.
