The new Amazon Kindle Paperwhite is still on sale for $100

Over the Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend, nearly every Amazon device — Fire TV sticks, Fire tablets, Echo speakers and so forth — was available at their lowest prices of the year. But the price of the brand-new Kindle Paperwhite — which has only been available since November 7 — didn’t budge: It remained at $130.

As of a few days ago, however, that changed: The Paperwhite has been selling at Amazon for $100 — that’s $30 off.

  • If you’re shopping for someone who’s looking for a dedicated ereader, that’s a great deal. The new Paperwhite is the Goldilocks in Amazon’s line:
  • It’s 10 percent thinner and lighter than the previous version.
  • It’s got a “flush-front” design with a back made of a softer, grippy material instead of hard plastic. 
  • It’s fully waterproof like the high-end Kindle Oasis and has a plastic screen that Amazon says is shatter-and-scratch-resistant.
  • It’s got Bluetooth built-in, for integration with Amazon’s Audible audiobook service.

It was an enthusiastic Techhnews Editors’ Choice at $130. At $100, it’s a steal. But it’s been on sale since the weekend, and that price drop could end at any time.
