If you missed the Black Friday sale on Amazon.ca for the new touchscreen Kindle e-reader, the online retailer has again cut its price down to $64 ($15 off), which includes free shipping. This new model launched back in September and has a touchscreen display, 20% faster processor and double the storage over its predecessor.
If you read your Amazon book collection from your iPhone or iPad using Amazon’s Kindle iOS app, the Kindle will sync pages where you left off using WhisperSync. This 6-inch screen with 167 ppi has Wi-Fi built-in, has battery life of weeks on a single charge and weighs 191 grams.
I currently have the first-gen Paperwhite (unfortunately not on sale), which has the built-in front-lit screen and it’s pretty great. But for first time Kindle owners, this touchscreen model is great way to enter into the world of owning an e-reader for the first time.
This is probably the best time to buy a Kindle as it only goes on sale a couple times every year and could make a pretty cool Christmas gift for those avid readers!
