New Kindles Coming Soon!

Christmas is definitely around the corner.  I just opened Amazon's website and this was on the Homepage:
Dear Customers,
Today we're excited to introduce the all-new Kindle Fire HD.
Kindle Fire HD 8.9 4GKindle Fire HD 8.9 WiFiKindle Fire HDAmazon Kindle Fire FamilyKindle Fire HD 8.9" 4G isn't just the best tablet for the price, it's the best tablet. $499 now gets you a large-screen HD tablet with a stunning 8.9" display, exclusive Dolby audio, dual stereo speakers, the fastest Wi-Fi, ultra-fast 4G LTE wireless, plus our new unprecedented $49.99 one-year 4G data package. Customers save hundreds of dollars in the first year compared to other 4G tablets. Kindle Fire HD 8.9" is also available in a Wi-Fi only model for $299.
Kindle Fire HD is the world's most-advanced 7" tablet, with a stunning HD display, plus the same exclusive Dolby audio, dual stereo speakers, the fastest Wi-Fi, and 16 GB of storage. Kindle Fire HD is just $199.
We are also introducing the world's most advanced e-readers, Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Paperwhite 3G.
Kindle Paperwhite 3GKindle PaperwhiteKindleAmazon Kindle FamilyYou'll do a double take when you see Kindle Paperwhite—we've added 62% more pixels and increased contrast by 25%, so whites are whiter, and blacks are blacker. We've also added a revolutionary built-in front light for the perfect reading experience whether you're out at the beach or at home in bed. Kindle Paperwhite starts from just $119. Kindle Paperwhite 3G is available for $179 with free 3G wireless—never pay for or hunt for a Wi-Fi hotspot. We've also updated our smallest, lightest Kindle with improved fonts and 15% faster page turns—it now starts at just $69.
Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Paperwhite are each in a class by themselves when it comes to hardware—there's nothing better. But the real magic is that they are also a service. When combined with our enormous content ecosystem, unmatched cross-platform interoperability and standard-setting customer service, we hope people will agree these are the best tablets and e-readers anywhere, at any price.
Thank you for being a customer,
Jeff Bezos
Founder & CEO

I think some readers would want to receive one this coming Christmas? *wink*  I got one for my birthday last May and I'm quite enjoying the e-reading experience.  I'm still all for printed books, but I support reading in any form, especially if it would get more people to read. :)

I would definitely recommend having an e-reader to your wishlist this year, especially if your bookshelf is overflowing like mine. *wink*
