Kindle 2022

Todd Haselton:

Amazon on Tuesday announced a new entry-level $99 Kindle e-reader with several improvements over the prior model.

The biggest change is the display, which is a lot sharper than the earlier $89 Kindle. That means text will look clearer when you’re reading, instead of slightly blurry. The sharpness is now on a par with Amazon’s more expensive $140 Kindle Paperwhite.


The new Kindle also has a backlight, but it doesn’t have some of the more advanced backlight features in the Kindle Paperwhite, like the option to change the white balance to an orange hue for reading comfort.

Finally, it uses USB-C. It’s $119.99 without lockscreen ads. Amazon’s product page refers to this as the 2022 release. Otherwise, I guess it would be the Kindle 11.
