The new generation 6-inch display Kindle comes in two models, with the major differentiator being the wireless technology built-in. The traditional Kindle came with 3G wireless, but Amazon has added Wi-Fi to the mix. Now there is Amazon Kindle 3G + Wi-Fi, which as the name implies comes with a built-in HSPDA modem (3G) with a fallback to EDGE/GPRS and built-in Wi-Fi 802.11b/g. The Second model is Kindle Wi-Fi, which comes with Wi-Fi 802.11b/g only, dropping 3G wireless. Amazon Kindle Wi-Fi comes with a price advantage, going for just 139 USD. A lower priced Kindle will surely position Amazon better in the ebook reader war.
The latest generation Kindle comes with more than twice as much storage as the previous model, coming with 4GB storage. Now you can carry up to 3,500 books in a lighter Kindle reader. Previous generation Kindle could only carry 1,500 books. The all new Kindle e-reader is available in graphite and white.
