Amazon announces its most affordable Kindle ever: $69 with new fonts and crisper text

At today’s Amazon Kindle event in LA, the ecommerce giant has announced a new $69 Kindle. The company first released its entry-level $79 kindle last year, and now that device has been updated with new fonts and crisper text at a lower price.

Beyond these improvements, little else has changed, but the device is definitely looking like quite a bargain, and will ship September 14th.
