Amazon’s new Kindle Touch is $99. Businessweek also reported that Amazon’s new Kindle Fire tablet is going to be an equally preposterous $200.
The tap zones on Kindle Touch have been rearranged-there’s a small top area for the menu, a small area for previous page on the left, and next page fills most of the screen. It uses an IR touch display.
The 3G model is $149 and will have free, unlimited wireless.
Kindle Touch will be up for pre-order today and ships Nov. 21st.
Update: The Kindle Touch is a beautiful piece of tablet. Thin, grip-able, and fine looking. The matte front is a great compliment to the e-ink display, and the absence of buttons is wonderfully minimal. But, most importantly, the Touch’s touch works just swell. Keyboards inputs and taps were very responsive—very impressive for an IR display, which usually pales in comparison to a capacitive screen like the iPad’s.
