    Amazon updates its most affordable Kindle reader

    At the same price it is thinner, and lighter, with twice the memory.

    You'd still be crazy to buy this over the Paperwhite, reading devices need to have the highest possible ppi. If you're buying a kindle you're probably doing it because reading on an LCD display is unpleasant, not sure why you'd subject yourself to other unpleasant experiences by accepting 167 ppi. The new colour is interesting though.

    I agree with you completely. It's all to do with the reading experience, and a Kindle doesn't cut it.

    Perhaps because some people might be able to afford £60 for this but not £110 for the paperwhite.

    You don't need a fantastic PPI for e-ink. It makes a massive difference on LCD but not so much for a kindle.

    Have a look at your average book, the printing is often pretty poor but people don't complain about that.
