As I’m sure most of you heard, Amazon unveiled a few new Kindles this past week. We’re Kindle lovers on this blog so we thought we’d share this information again.
You now have the option of getting a Kindle Fire in HD in 7″ and 8.9” inch models and with 4G wireless. The Fire HD is faster, has a hi-resolution front facing camera, a sharper display and comes with Dolby digital plus. Even the original Fire has more memory, a longer battery life and has been discounted to $159. These are just some of the features. Visit Amazon for a full list of features for each Fire.
The one I’m interested in his the Kindle Paperwhite. One of the big reasons I haven’t upgraded from by Kindle 2 (which was renamed the Kindle Keyboard) is because with that I get free 3G +wireless. That is now offered with the Kindle Paperwhite plus it comes with a built in light (which according to Amazon “…illuminates the screen to provide the perfect reading experience in all lighting conditions” ), higher resolution and contrast and an 8 week battery life.
My Kindle, that I love so much, is getting old and the battery won’t hold it’s charge like it use to so I think I’ll be getting myself a new one for Christmas. I just need to decide on which one.
