Amazon has announced a slew of new Kindles and there’s one for every need. First there’s the cheapest Kindle ever, the updated basic model, which has improved text, new fonts and at 69 bucks is ten dollars cheaper than its predecessor. Next, there’s the Kindle Paperwhite, which has a brighter, front-lit screen and can last eight weeks on a single charge. The Paperwhite is 119 dollars or 179 dollars for the 3g version.  Amazon also announced updated features and a price reduction to the original Kindle Fire and revealed two new tablets. The 499 dollar Kindle Fire HD 4G LTE is an 8.9 inch tablet with a screen at 1920×1200 resolution that has increased processing power and memory. Amazon introduced an accompanying 49 dollar a year data plan. Have no use for data on the go? The Kindle Fire HD is the tablet for you then, with all the features listed above without the 4G connectivity for 299 bucks
