Amazon has just announced a new Kindle that upgrades the previous generation but still keeps that same £60 price.

The new Kindle for 2016 is thinner and lighter than its predecessor yet manages to cram in double the memory for greater storage capacity.

The Kindle is available in white or black and comes with a more rounded edge for comfortable holding over long periods of time. Despite the size change the battery will still last for weeks on a charge.

New reading features have been introduced with the new Kindle. Export Notes allows you to export highlights and notes from your kindle to your email that will be sent as a PDF. This feature will be free and arrive as an over the air update in the coming weeks.

Bluetooth audio is now built-in allowing for support for the visually impaired thanks to VoiceView which can read books and other Kindle content over a Bluetooth speakers or headphones.

The home screen has also had an update with easier navigation aimed at helping you find favourites, manage Wish Lists and more.

The new Amazon Kindle is available for pre-order now for £60 and will begin shipping in the coming weeks.
