Amazon is launching a new version of its regular Kindle device today. The company’s newest Kindle is not much of a major upgrade, and it’s only being upgraded to include a new adjustable front light.
The adjustable front light is nothing new for Amazon, the Kindle Paperwhite has an adjustable front light, too, for example. As for the new Kindle, the new front light makes it easier to read wherever you are on the 6-inch, 167ppi display. “Customers consistently tell us how much they appreciate having a front light on Kindle devices so they can read in any environment—from a sunny patio to their bed at night,” said Kevin Keith, Vice President, Amazon Devices.
The new Kindle ships with Amazon’s newest reading features like cross-device syncing. It will also come with three months of Kindle Unlimited for free.
Amazon claims the new Kindle comes with an updated design and “latest electronic ink technology” for better contrast, though the device doesn’t look all that different from the outside.
Apart from that, most of the new Kindle is pretty much the same. The device does cost $89.99 now, which is $10 more than before. It comes in the same black and white finish. You can pre-order one here, and get it by April 10.
