Latest waterproof Kindle Paperwhite is $90 ($40 off), its lowest price yet

However good smartphone displays may get, when it comes to long-form text, e-readers offer a noticeably superior experience. Reading for long periods of time on an e-ink display results in less fatigue to the eyes, battery life is measured in weeks instead of hours, and you get a break from the barrage of notifications that distract you while reading on a phone. Amazon has virtually no competition in this market, but it still keeps making better Kindles every few years. The latest generation Kindle Paperwhite is currently on sale at an all-time low price of $90 across various retailers. This is $10 lower than the $100 sale price from last month.

The new Kindle Paperwhite is $30-40 off ($100-$120) right now

Amazon makes the best e-readers around — mostly because Barnes & Noble hasn't refreshed its Nook lineup in years (excluding the recent LCD tablet) and Google never entered the market. New models of the Kindle Paperwhite arrived a few months ago, and now they're on sale for the first time.

[Weekend Poll] Will You Be Buying A New Kindle?

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Do You Stream Your Music Library On Android, Or Store It Locally?

On September 6, Amazon announced three new Kindles: a 6" non-Android model called the Paperwhite (with or without 3G), the 7" Kindle Fire HD (16 and 32GB), and an 8.9" Kindle Fire HD (16 or 32GB), while updating the hardware and dropping the price of the original Fire to $160. Pre-orders for the new versions went live the same day, and release dates vary anywhere from September 14 to November 20.  The specs show Amazon's commitment to the ecosystem - and to not be undersold by Google:

As David found out, they certainly offer a compelling package at a very accessible price, especially thanks to the ecosystem Amazon has built up around the devices.

New Kindles Available For Pre-Order From Best Buy, In Case You Prefer Brick And Mortar Instead Of Smiling Boxes

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.
