Amazon has sold out of the 8GB and 32GB Kindle Paperwhite 4 e-reader in the United States. This has occured because the company discounted both models recently and it looks like enough people purchased one that the stock has utterly diplited. Both models will be replenished on December 25th, which means if you are looking for a last minute gift, it will not arrive in time for Christmas.
The only other retailer in the United States that is still observing the Paperwhite 4 discount is Best Buy. They are selling the 8GB model for $99.99 in their stores and online and ditto with the 32GB version. If you utterly need a new Kindle right away, they are your only option.
