We have already mentioned that rumours of a Kindle 3 – really the 3rd Gen of 6″ Kindle Wireless Reading Device have been rife. Well, after announcing a few days ago that the Kindle 2 was sold out, amazon have at last given us the Kindle 3 Release Date.
Thankfully we do not have to wait too long. The 3rd generation handheld Kindle with a 6″ display will be released 27 August 2010. In the meantime you can book yours by pre-ordering now (just click the links above).
There are two key choices now (a great improvement). You can go for a cheap Kindle with Wifi only (at $139) or spend a little more ($189) for a Kindle with 3G and Wifi. The Kindle 3G/Wifi option also allows you to choose the graphite color or their traditional white.
Whichever 6″ display Kindle you go for you get all the features you loved about the old Kindle Wireless Reader plus a whole lot more. We’ll be going into more detail soon about all the features on offer, but to wet your appetite:
- more memory
- longer lasting battery
- even more beautiful!
So we’ll be back soon for a slightly more technical update on the 3rd Gen Kindle Wireless Reader…
