Pricing for the 6-inch Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite drop to all-time lows

If you need to get some reading done without lugging around a ton of books, today’s deal is for you. Amazon is selling the latest version of the 6-inch Kindle with no ads and the Kindle Paperwhite with ads at $70 and $100 respectively–a discount of $30. Sure, those are their typical sale prices, but this is about as good as it gets, as these are the all-time low prices for these devices. The sales started earlier this week, and it’s not clear when they will end.The latest version of the 6-inch Kindle without “Special Offers” comes in either black or white, and has built-in Audible functionality. This feature lets you read a book, and then switch to listening to the audio book via Bluetooth headphones while you’re on a run. This basic device features a 6-inch, 167ppi, glare-free display and 4GB of onboard storage. The fact that it comes without special offers is great since it means your Kindle won’t show ads when it’s idle (which is a standard feature for most Kindles).To read this article in full, please click here Continue reading at 'PC World'
