Amazon drops price of Kindle by £10 to £59

Amazon cut the price of the cheapest Kindle device by nearly 15 per cent to £59, a price that includes free delivery and will last till tonight.

The price has been recuced as part of its special one-day offer on the Kindle so one might expect other Kindle readers and tablets to be discounted over the next few days.

This newer version of the award-winning Kindle weighs only 170g, has new darker, hand-tuned fonts for easier reading, can download books in less than one minute thanks to the built-in Wi-Fi and can hold up to 1,400 books.

Furthermore, its battery can power it for up to 30 days and its E Ink screen has a uniform contrast ratio which means that your viewing angle doesn’t affect readability.

The Kindle also comes with free cloud storage for your Amazon Kindle content which means that even if you lose it, your content will be safe and retrievable. The other Kindle sell for £159 (Fire HD), £129 (Fire), £169 (Paperwhite 3G) and £109 (Paperwhite)

In mainland Europe, you will be able to get the reader for 59 Euros (that’s just over £51) while you can get the US-bound Amazon Kindle Fire HD for around $269 and $449 for the Wi-Fi and 4G LTE versions respectively.
