A new Amazon Kindle ebook reader has been announced by the online retailer. The new Kindle offers better contrast, a faster response when turning pages, extra storage and built-in WiFi. There's a 3G+WiFi version for £149 (which includes all 3G charges) or a WiFi-only version for £109.
A new UK Kindle store will be launched on 27th August, which is when the new Kindle starts shipping. Amazon is currently taking pre-orders. Previous versions have only been available as imports ordered via the US-based Amazon.com website.
