Amazon to Release $139 Wi-Fi Edition of Kindle eReader

kindle13923.jpgLast night, with typical Amazon timing, Amazon unveiled a $139 edition of the Kindle eReader. The “Kindle Wi-Fi” will be smaller, cheaper, and have higher resolution.

UPDATED: eBookNewser has more Amazon news today–the bookseller has launched a Kindle Store in the UK, but UK publishers won’t get to set their own prices. In addition, the president of the American Booksellers Association has criticized Amazon’s deal with the Wylie Agency: “Diminishing the availability of titles and narrowing the options for readers can only harm our society in the long run.”

Finally, we live-blogged Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos‘ appearance on Charlie Rose last night–follow this link to read our coverage to learn more about the new Kindle (pictured above).
