Highlights:

  • Amazon has just sent an email to a number of Kindle users who have older e-readers on their accounts.
  • The Company will let you use a promotional code to get 30% off a new Kindle, as well as $40 in e-book credit.
  • Amazon Kindle is available in five variants in India.

Amazon’s Kindle e-readers with built-in 3G will begin to lose the ability to connect to the internet on their own, according to an email sent to customers. The Kindle and Kindle DX models in the list will no longer be able to connect to the internet, but all the other models can continue to do so using a Wi-Fi connection.

Amazon has just sent an email to a number of Kindle users who have older e-readers on their accounts. The company has stated that the Kindle (2nd Gen) International, Kindle DX International, Kindle Keyboard, Kindle (4th Gen), and Kindle (5th Gen) will no longer be able to browse, buy, or borrow books directly from these Kindle e-readers. The only way you can have books delivered to these devices is to buy them from your local Amazon website and have them delivered to the Kindle. Existing books that are on these models will still be accessible.

Amazon Kindle users: Here’s What You Can Do

You’ll still be able to make purchases on the Amazon website and send them to your Kindle, and likewise, your existing e-book library will still be accessible on the device, so it’s not like this hardware is being made completely obsolete. If you are feeling tempted to upgrade to a newer model, Amazon will let you use a promotional code to get 30% off a new Kindle, as well as $40 in e-book credit.

Amazon Kindle is available in five variants in India. The basic 10th Gen Kindle with a 6-inch display is priced at Rs 7,999, the Kindle Paperwhite is priced at Rs 13,999, the Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition with a 6.8-inch display is priced at Rs 17,999, the Kindle Paperwhite 4G LTE variant is Rs 15,999, and the top-spec Kindle Oasis is priced at Rs 24,999 in India. Users can purchase the e-book reader on Amazon’s Kindle Store.
