All New Kindle - Now With Touch

All New Kindle
Amazon Introduces 2 All-New Kindles with a touch interface.

The updated model also features a 20 percent faster processor and twice the storage with 'weeks of battery life'.

The pre-orders for the new Kindle start on Thursday, and it will start shipping on October 2, 2014.
The new Kindle ebook reader features Kindle Freetime which allows parents to hand-select books for their kids to read, and hand out achievement badges when they hit reading milestones. A progress report keeps parents updated on total time spent reading, number of words looked up, badges earned, and books finished.

It continues to have other features like the Vocabulary builder, Whispersync and Smart Lookup. Amazon states that over the next couple of months new features like Word Wise and Enhanced Search will be introduced as part of a free, over-the-air software update, which will also be available on Kindle Paperwhite.
