We're excited to introduce an all-new Kindle family: three all-new Kindle e-readers that are smaller, lighter, and more affordable than ever before, and Kindle Fire - a new class of Kindle that brings the same ease-of-use and deep integration of content that helped Kindle re-invent reading - to movies, TV shows, music, magazines, apps, books, games, and more.

New Latest Generation Kindle-Fits In Your Pocket-Only $79

The new latest generation Kindle is for readers who want the lightest, most compact Kindle at an incredible price. The latest generation Kindle features a new design that is 30 percent lighter at just 5.98 ounces, 18 percent smaller, and turns pages 10 percent faster. Kindle is now small and light enough to fit easily in your pocket and carry with you everywhere, yet it still features the same 6-inch, most advanced electronic ink display that reads like real paper, even in bright sunlight.

Kindle is available starting today at

New Addition to the Kindle Family-"Kindle Touch"-Only $99

Kindle Touch is a new addition to the Kindle family with an easy-to-use touch screen that makes it easier than ever to turn pages, search, shop, and take notes - still with all the benefits of the most advanced electronic ink display. Kindle Touch is also lighter, smaller, eliminates battery anxiety with extra-long battery life and holds thousands of books.

Kindle Touch is available to customers in the U.S. for pre-order starting today at and ships November 21.

New Top of the Line Kindle e-reader-"Kindle Touch 3G" -Only $149

Kindle Touch 3G is a new addition to the Kindle family for readers who want the top of the line e-reader. Kindle Touch 3G offers the same new design and features of Kindle Touch - small and light, easy-to-use touch screen, storage for thousands of books, and extra-long battery life - with the unparalleled added convenience of free 3G. Kindle's free 3G connection means you never have to hunt for or pay for a Wi-Fi hotspot - you simply download and read books anytime, anywhere in over 100 countries around the world. Amazon pays for the 3G connection so there's no monthly fee or annual contract.

Kindle Touch 3G is available to customers in the U.S. for pre-order starting today at and ships November 21.

All three new Kindle e-readers also come with special offers and sponsored screensavers that appear when you're not reading. Customers enjoy special money-saving offers delivered wirelessly, including discounts on local services, products, and experiences from AmazonLocal, Amazon's local deals marketplace. Customers can also choose to purchase a Kindle without special offers and sponsored screensavers.

New Class of Kindle-"Kindle Fire"-Only $199

Kindle Fire is a new addition to the Kindle family that offers instant access to Amazon's massive selection of digital content, Amazon's revolutionary cloud-accelerated browser, free storage in the Amazon Cloud, Whispersync, 14.6 ounce design that's easy to hold with one hand, brilliant color touchscreen, and a fast and powerful dual core processor -all for only $199.

Kindle Fire puts Amazon's incredible selection of digital content at your fingertips - enjoy over 18 million movies, TV shows, songs, apps, games, books, and magazines in vibrant color.

Customers in the U.S. can pre-order Kindle Fire starting today at and it ships November 15.

Followup question on the Kindle comes 'pre-registered' to the buyer's account? What if I'd like to give it as a gift to my parents (who currently don't have an Amazon account)? Can it be obtained non-'registered' to let them sign up and set it up for whatever their account would be?

Why are none of these new models available for pre-order in Canada? Particularly the Kindle Touch and Touch 3G?

On the base model Kindle for $79, how does a consumer make annotations and notes, without the touch capabilities of the Touch, and without the keyboard of the Kindle 3. Wouldn't it be inconvenient to move key to key using only a five-way rocker?

Posted on Sep 28, 2011 8:57:55 AM PDT
Are the backs of the touches metal? I can't tell from the pictures and it isn't mentioned. I loved the aluminum back of the old Kindle.

Good news for the ppl that is not sure about buying a Kindle or an Ipad.

Posted on Sep 28, 2011 8:59:09 AM PDT
Does the price include internet access, or is a separate contract required? If so, how much is that per month, and how long is the contract. What is the carrier for the signal AT

Amazon - I love you so much I feel like sending money without buying anything! WELL DONE!

K. O'Rourke and Amber R. Smith - if you are within the 30-day trial window, you can return the K3 for a full refund.

If I keep my original Kindle, can I share content with the Cloud drive and access it on both devices? Also, is there an adapter for car usage (for music)? This could easily replace my need for the iPod touch and iPad....

Great to see new versions of the Kindle. I already own a Kindle with keyboard, and I'm perfectly happy with it. I wouldn't trade it for one with a virtual keyboard. The Kindle Fire should be available in a DX format as well, i.e. a 13" display. I would definitely consider purchasing one of those.

I don't have the original packing though. Does that matter?

when will the kindle touch 3G be available in Germany/Europe?

Will the 3G continue to have a browser? Might seem silly to some but it is listed as "Experimental" in current generation

In reply to an earlier post on Sep 28, 2011 9:02:35 AM PDT
I think you just check the box that says 'gift' and it is sent without pre-registration

From what I can tell, none of the newer Kindles have an option to add an additional card for storage. Are there any details on this? I have many items in my library that I purchased outside of Amazon and want to continue to be able to access those.
