Best Kindle for many is the basic $99 version ($85 for Black Friday)

I’ve written a largely favorable review of this 2022 basic Kindle that shows up near the top of customer reviews because of its list of tips. I think this is a super device that’s well worth the price. Oddly enough (smile), you can find it under the alias (as here): Abycats

Amazon is back again with the latest base Kindle, and it’s called the All-new Kindle (taking a page out of Nintendo’s misguided book.) This 11th-generation model is finally bringing plenty of long-requested features at a $99 price point. The most significant addition is the new 300ppi high-res screen, alleviating the blurry text the base Kindle was known for.

But that’s not all; like the latest Paperwhite, the All-new Kindle finally offers a USB-C port. You can also expect a bump in storage space, now up to 16GB. No matter how you slice it, the All-new Kindle is the best base Kindle we’ve ever seen, and at $99, it’s currently one of the best purchases in the Kindle lineup.

The All-new Kindle offers many improvements over the previous generations, including a new 300ppi screen, USB-C charging, and a bump in storage to 16GB. Sustainability is also part and parcel this year, with many recycled materials in use, where the packaging can be 100% recycled.
