You might be aware of the fact that there’s a new Amazon Kindle in town and it seems the model is a real success, since it was sold out shortly after its launch. The WiFi-only model goes for $139, while the full feature one costs $189, but they’re both “Temporarily Sold Out”, if you perform a quick search.

The new Kindle brings on an improved e-book reading experience and attracts many customers, thanks to a very low price. The Nook is also a decent alternative, although it involves an extra $10 per unit. What’s the new Kindle all about? A new E-Ink display with better contrast, faster page loads, more storage, a Webkit browser and an improved battery.

The form factor is also smaller and WiFi is always a welcome extra.
