Amazon has introduced "the next generation of Kindle--the lightest and smallest Kindle." Starting at $99.99, the new Kindle features a 300ppi high-resolution six-inch display, adjustable front light, dark mode, USB-C charging, battery life of up to six weeks and 16gb of storage. The same features are included with Kindle Kids, along with a one-year subscription to Amazon Kids+. Shipping for Kindle and Kindle Kids began October 12.
Kevin Keith, v-p of Amazon devices and services, said the new Kindle "is the latest example of how we continue to bring premium features to our most affordable devices for even more customers to enjoy. And since we launched Kindle Kids three years ago, kids have logged nearly three billion minutes reading on Kindle devices."
