Amazon’s eReader wasn’t very heavy before, neither was it too big, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t get slimmer, or lighter, especially since Amazon has done exactly that this week.
This comes after the announcement of a brand new Amazon Kindle this week, which is thinner and lighter than the previous model, but also has double the memory.
Despite those changes, it is still the same price as the previous model at just £59.99/ $79.99.
Amazon explains more about it with the following:
The all-new Kindle is thinner and lighter and has twice the memory compared to the previous generation Kindle. Now available in black and white color options, the new Kindle features a more rounded design, making it easy and comfortable to hold in one hand at any angle for extended reading sessions. Unlike reflective tablet and smartphone screens, the high contrast touchscreen display on Kindle eliminates glare in any setting, even in direct sunlight. Recent studies have shown that evening exposure to blue light from backlit screens like tablets and smartphones can suppress the body’s production of melatonin, a naturally occurring hormone that helps the body fall asleep. Because the Kindle display emits no light, you can read anytime without losing sleep. Like all Kindle e-readers, the all-new Kindle has a battery life that lasts for weeks and not hours.
