Amazon’s latest Kindle Paperwhite appeared briefly in a product page this morning, but swiftly disappeared. Soon enough, however, a pre-order page popped up for it on both the UK and US storefronts. The price remains constant, at £109/$139 for the base WiFi model without special offers, but for your dosh you’ll get a screen with even higher contrast and less reflectivity, GoodReads integration, a 25% faster processor and a 19% increase in touch sensitivity thanks to a tighter touch grid. What remains the same from the original model that we reviewed earlier this year is everything else, including 8 weeks of battery life with typical reading and wireless connectivity disabled and the best dedicated e-reader money can buy today. Orders placed today will ship from September 30th in the States and October 6th in the UK, while variants with free worldwide 3G connectivity are promised for early November.
