Amazon has unveiled new 6-inch Kindle devices sporting a new design, display and color option. The smaller Kindles now come in graphite color and have the same e-ink display as Kindle DX with 50 percent improved contrast and offers 20 percent faster page turns. Amazon has also managed to shave off the extra bulk by making the Kindle 21 percent smaller and 15 percent lighter from its predecessor.
However, it’s the inclusion of Wi-Fi that makes the new Kindle more attractive. Users now options to go with the Wi-Fi only Kindle and Wi-Fi+3G Kindle model.
Both models will ship from August 27 but can be pre-ordered now for $139 (Wi-Fi only) and $189 (Wi-Fi+3G).
