Say Hello to the Newest Kindle

Dear Customers, Two pieces of news: First, our #1 bestseller Kindle is now $259, down from $299. Second, we are introducing a new addition to our Kindle family of wireless reading devices: Kindle with global wireless.
With this new Kindle, you can get your books, newspapers, and magazines delivered wirelessly while at home or abroad in over 100 countries. Whether you’re in Paris, Mumbai, or São Paulo, you can think of a book and be reading it in less than 60 seconds.
Kindle utilizes the same 3G wireless technology as advanced cell phones, so you never need to hunt for a Wi-Fi hotspot. Unlike cell phones, there are no monthly wireless bills and no yearly contracts. There is no software to install, and no syncing required.
Kindle is as thin as a magazine and weighs less than a paperback—but can hold 1,500 books. Its electronic-ink display looks and reads like real paper without glare—even in bright sunlight. A long battery life means you can read for up to two weeks on a single charge.
The Kindle Store has more than 350,000 books, including 104 of 112 New York Times bestsellers, plus top newspapers and magazines. We added more than 75,000 books in just the last five months. Our vision for Kindle is to have every book ever printed, in any language, all available in under 60 seconds.
Our $259 Kindle with U.S. wireless is available for immediate shipment, and our $279 Kindle with U.S. and international wireless can be preordered starting today with shipment starting in less than two weeks.
Kindle is the most wished for, the most gifted, and the #1 bestselling product across the millions of items we sell on Amazon.com. We are grateful for and energized by this reception. Thank you for being a customer.

Jeff Bezos
Founder, Amazon.com

P.S. Until now, Kindles have only been available to U.S. customers. Starting today, Kindle with International Wireless and get their English-language books in 60 seconds.
