At today’s Amazon Kindle event in LA, the ecommerce giant has announced a new $69 Kindle. The company had released a $79 kindle last year and now that device has been updated with new fonts and crisper text at a lower price.
Beyond these improvements, little else has changed, but it’s definitely looking like quite a bargin. The device will ship September 14th.
This is one of three new models announced today, including the all new Kindle Paperwhite, which features a front-lit screen and 8 weeks of battery life.
Rumors had suggested that Amazon would be announcing a new Kindle Fire tablet, as well as updates to its Kindle e-reader line. We’ll report confirmations as the event unfolds.
Only yesterday, both Nokia and Motorola held events in NY. Motorola announced the Droid RAZR HD, HD Max and the RAZR M, while Nokia announced the 920 and 820.
