It’s no longer the case that you can get the Kindle in any colour you want as long as it’s black, as Amazon have now released a white version of the e-reader. It’s the first time we’ve seen the standard Kindle in anything other than standard black and, to be honest, it gives us the same reservations as most other white tech – what about the marks, the scratches? Won’t we just cover it with a protective case anyway?
Other than being a different colour, this is the same basic Kindle that was released last year, with the same 6-inch touchcreen and 4GB of storage. It even has the same price tag: £59.99.
The white Kindle is available now on Amazon UK. Could this introduction of choice be a sign of a bigger basic Kindle colour wheel to come? We hope so; it’s always nice to feel like you have more choice, even in your more basic tech purchases.
