Amazon today announced the next generation of entry-level Kindle. For the same $99.99 price point, the updated Kindle comes with a 300 ppi high-resolution 6-inch display, USB-C port, battery life of up to six weeks, and twice the storage. Also, this is the lightest and most compact Kindle model available. Amazon also announced the Kindle Kids with the same specs, additional kids content and some customization options on cover. Kindle and Kindle Kids pre-orders start today and will begin shipping October 12.
Kindle and Kindle Kids feature an all-new 6-inch, glare-free, 300 ppi high-resolution display with three-times more pixels for laser-quality text and sharp images that read like paper.
