Amazon India has introduced a Rs 1,000 discount on all Kindle e-readers. These include the new Kindle, previous-generation Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite, and Kindle Paperwhite 3G variant.
The new Kindle, which was launched in India for Rs 5,999 last year, is now available on Amazon India for Rs 4,999. This is the same price at which the previous-generation Kindle is retailing as well. While both the e-readers are similarly priced, the new Kindle boasts a touchscreen display, 20 percent faster processor compared to the previous-generation Kindle and twice the amount of storage as well.
The Kindle Paperwhite variants too are available with a Rs 1,000 discount. The Wi-Fi only variant was launched in India for Rs 10,999, but is now available for Rs 9,999. The 3G variant, on the other hand, is now available for Rs 12,999 instead of the Rs 13,999 it was launched at.
While Amazon’s Kindles are the popular choice among buyers, there are also alternatives available including Kobo’s e-readers. They are however a bit more expensive than Amazon’s offerings. The Kobo Touch N905-KBO-B 6-inch e-reader with an anti-glare display is priced at Rs 6,999, while the Kobo Glo N613-KBO-P 6-inch e-reader with a backlit display is priced at Rs 10,999.
