Amazon’s All-new Kindle for $89.99 is priced for budget users

Amazon’s All-new Kindle for $89.99 is priced for budget users

Amazon’s All-new Kindle improves upon the company’s most affordable e-reader by adding a few new features for a slightly higher price. Announced Wednesday and due to ship April 10, the All-new Kindle starts at $89.99 with Special Offers (ads) enabled—$10 more than the starting price for the prior generation. It will cost $109.99 without Special Offers (you can also disable Special Offers later, for a fee)

Because the All-new Kindle is still the lowest-end model, you can’t expect it to have all the perks of the midrange Kindle Paperwhite, which is our pick for the best Kindle for most users; let alone the Kindle Oasis, which has every imaginable e-reader bell and whistle—and a price to match. (For more Kindle reviews and how-to’s, go to our Kindle product roundup.) Still, Amazon is offering some nice features for the price, including: 

  • Glare-free, adjustable front lighting for easy reading day and night
  • Improved E-Ink technology for crisper text
  • Capacitive touch for fewer mistaken swipes as you read
  • A three-month trial of the Kindle Unlimited service (access to a large library of content without per-product fees), normally $9.99 monthly

All-new Kindle vs. Kindle Paperwhite

Many users will be looking at the All-new Kindle and wondering, what are the trade-offs for the lower price? We’ll go through the highlights here. 

Display: The All-new Kindle sports a 6-inch, 4-LED screen with 167 ppi. The Kindle Paperwhite’s display is the same size, but has 5 LEDs (so it’ll be brighter), and a higher resolution of 300 ppi. Finally, the Kindle Paperwhite’s display is flush with the front of the device, while the All-new Kindle’s display is slightly recessed from the bezels. 

Storage: The All-new Kindle has just 4GB of storage, compared to a choice of 8GB or 32GB on the Kindle Paperwhite. 

Battery: While the devices are actually very similar in dimensions and weight, their battery life differs greatly. Amazon estimates four weeks of life from a full charge for the All-new Kindle, while the Kindle Paperwhite can last up to six weeks from a full charge. 

Connectivity: The All-new Kindle is Wi-Fi-only, while the Kindle Paperwhite offers a cellular option on its 32GB version for additional cost. 

Water resistance: The All-new Kindle is not water-resistant, while the Kindle Paperwhite is IPX8-rated to survive in two meters of water for up to an hour at a time.
