Kindle (10th generation) on sale for $59.99 USD.

We have had reports that storage has been bumped up to 8GB, but maybe this sale is of older stock that has the 4GB as listed in product specifications. White model is out of stock until July 7, perhaps that means it has the newer configuration? Seems we can only speculate.

I have bought one. It appears to be a repackaging of the Kids' Edition (G090VB) and it comes with 8GB of storage. Stock firmware is 5.12.2 . I bought it expecting it to be a KT4 that I could jailbreak. I guess I'm just going to be sitting on it disconnected from the wifi and praying for a jailbreak for the time being.


Sucks, I was hoping to play some Zork.

Maybe they've heard rumors that Kobo's Nia is going to be released soon and Kobo/Walmart are planning a low introductory price for it. (Assuming it is the Kobo clone of the Tolino Page 2.) It would be nice to have competition at the low-end again.

Just type in Kindle.com... or click...

Maybe it depends on where you live?

I'm curious - why would you jailbreak an e-ink Kindle?

Forget the $59.99 price. The price is back to $89.99.

That didn't take long. Amazon has been doing more of this lately. Maybe Kobo is starting to cut into their market a little.

That would be so nice if true.
