Images of what appears to be the new Kindle Fire leaked yesterday, and today we got our first look at the Kindle. The key feature: 'Paperwhite,' a new technology that improves the display's readability in various lighting conditions.
The Verge is reporting that the eBook reader will tout higher contrast, high resolution, and eight weeks of battery life—even when using the powerful backlight.
We will know more about this new Kindle next week. Until then, you'll want to wait to make a Kindle purchase. You may not have a choice: The current Kindle Fire is sold out.
