Lots of new information released about these bad boys.
A lot of websites, even Amazon.com, are advertising the Kindle, and the Kindle touch at $79 and $99 respectively. They fail to mention (obviously), that they are with ads. They are non obtrusive ads, also called KSO (Kindle Special Offers). You can purchase non KSO’d Kindles for $109 and $139 respectively.
Obvious differences :
The Kindle Touch has twice the battery, twice the space/memory, and the touch screen compared to the non-touch version.
They also have 3G models for the Kindle Touch, which offers unlimited, no plan data from your kindle.
Release date is November 21, 2011.
