According to a New York Times article, "the new Kindles, which will ship Aug. 27, have the same six-inch reading area as earlier Kindles but weigh about 15 percent less and are 21 percent smaller. The Kindles have twice the storage, up to 3,500 books."
And the expected price? $139 (yes, one hundred thirty-nine dollars).
No wonder the articles also notes that "some analysts are predicting that e-readers could become this year’s hot holiday gift." Summer birthday, anyone?
