Amazon unveils the Kindle TouchIf you’re in the market for an e-reader or you want to upgrade your current Kindle, Amazon has today just announced three new Kindle models that you can choose from – the Kindle Touch, Kindle Touch 3G and a smaller version of the Kindle (all three pictured above 0 image courtesy of IntoMobile).

The Kindle Touch is Amazon’s new e-reader device and it uses an infra-red finger tracking system for navigational purposes. It’s slightly smaller than the current version of the Kindle (thanks to the removal of the dedicated keyboard) and appears to sport a new control UI that favors the right side of the device to flip pages forward, while a strip on the left of the device is used to go back in pages. The Kindle Touch will retail for $99 while the 3G version of the Kindle Touch will retail for $149.

Amazon also revealed a smaller and lighter version of the current Kindle which will retail for $79. It does not appear to be much different from the current version apart from its size and weight. It will feature WiFi connectivity and can be ordered and shipped out today.
