Today Amazon announced a new sleeker, lighter and less expensive version of their popular eBook Reader. The new Kindle is priced at a very affordable $139 and is available in White or Graphite. Besides the obvious physical changes, the display is supposed to have 50% better contrast that previous versions, battery life is supposed to last an impressive length of time – one month! What’s missing to make the price so cheap? 3G connectivity. This new $139 version only offers WiFi. No word on availability yet. I don’t even see this new model posted on Amazon’s site.
