Yesterday, Amazon made waves by announcing what experts are calling "a bajillion new Kindles." Pre-orders went live yesterday from Amazon, but if you'd rather pick yours up from a store like they used to do when your parents were kids, Best Buy is now offering you that chance. You will have to give up that cardboard grin, though:
All of the new Kindles will be available for pre-order, including the non-Androidy ones. Here's a list of which devices will be available when:
September 14: Kindle e-reader ($69), updated Kindle Fire ($159), 7" Kindle Fire HD ($199
October: Kindle Paperwhite ($119, $179 for 3G)
"Before Christmas": 8.9" Kindle Fire HD ($299), Kindle Fire HD LTE ($499)
It's a little unnerving that Best Buy is using the "before Christmas" language, when Amazon stated that orders would ship on November 20th for some of the late-bloomers among yesterday's announcements.
