Amazon's all-new Kindle is now 11 percent thinner and 16 percent lighter than the previous generation Kindle, making it easier to hold for longer.

It also features twice the memory of the previous-generation hardware - 512MB instead of 256MB - presumably to allow the system to run smoother.

The all-new Kindle also comes with a few new reading features, such as Export Notes, built-in Bluetooth audio support for better accessibility, Chinese Word Wise Hints, and more.

What hasn't changed is the price - the all-new Kindle is still only $79.99.

In other Kindle-related news, the Kindle Paperwhite is now available in white.
