According to a report from yesterday, it was suggested that Amazon had new Kindle e-readers in the works, and sure enough they do. Amazon has since officially unveiled two new Kindle e-readers in the form of the Kindle Voyage and an updated Kindle that will be priced at a very affordable $79.
Starting with the Kindle Voyage, this is Amazon’s most advanced e-reader, or so they claim. The e-reader will sport a new glass front and a magnesium back, making it thinner, stronger, and lighter. The device will also use a new Paperwhite display with a higher resolution and even sharper text and images.
Amazon has also announced a new feature called Adaptive Front Light, which will adjust the brightness of the e-reader over time and based on the surrounding light. There is also a new PagePress feature that allows users to flip pages of the e-reader just by pressing on the bezels of the e-reader. There will be built-in vibration to let you know when a page has been turned. The Kindle Voyage will be priced at $199.
Next is the new Kindle which has been priced at $79. If you don’t need all the new features of the Kindle Voyage and want a basic e-reader, this could be it. It will feature more storage, a faster processor, and a new touch interface. The Kindle Voyage is pegged for a release on the 21st of October, while the new Kindle will be available 2nd October.
