Amazon on Tuesday announced a new entry-level $99 Kindle e-reader with several improvements over the prior model.
The biggest change is the display, which is a lot sharper than the earlier $89 Kindle. That means text will look clearer when you’re reading, instead of slightly blurry. The sharpness is now on a par with Amazon’s more expensive $140 Kindle Paperwhite. The new Kindle also comes with twice the storage, 16GB instead of 8GB, which should be more than enough for most digital book libraries. You’ll be able to store thousands of books.
