Amazon recently renamed its 3rd generation e-readers the Kindle Keyboard WIFI and Kindle Keyboard 3G. This was mainly due to the fact that Amazon just released a slimmed down e-reader and simply named it the Kindle.
In this exclusive Good e-Reader Video we go over the price differences between the older model released last year and the one released a few days ago, as well as the hardware and software differences.
The main distinction between the two models is the Kindle Keyboard has a physical keyboard and audio. The new model has a virtual keyboard and no audio functionality. The newest version of the Kindle has an updated operating system with Amazon Kindle 4.0! You feel the difference between the OS with faster page turns and a more fluid internet experience. I dug the fact that the page turn refresh was greatly sped up with the new model. This toned down the flickering that happens as you turn pages.
Check out the video below for our full hands on video comparison of the Amazon Kindle Keyboard and new Kindle review.
