Amazon has recently announced its new Kindle Voyage eReader, and it has quickly gained wide recognition as perhaps the best eReader currently available. And now it is becoming available for those in the UK, along with the new Fire HDX 8.9 tablet.
Amazon’s Kindle Voyage eReader will be available at £169 for the WiFi-only model and £229 for the 3G connectivity-enabled one. The Paperwhite starts at just £109, but it doesn’t feature the goodies present in the new Voyage eReader.

Jorrit Van der Meulen, VP Amazon Devices, EU, said the following:
“Kindle Voyage and Fire HDX 8.9 are leading edge devices that our customers are going to love. Kindle Voyage is our best Kindle yet, providing an unmatched reading experience that helps you truly lose yourself in a story. With Fire HDX, our team has packed an incredible amount of technology into a startlingly light design, combining an incredible display with faster graphics and powerful audio to provide performance that’s up there with the very best. We think both these devices are going to be very popular with our customers this Christmas.”
Amazon’s Kindle Voyage device features a high-resolution 300 ppi disply and comes with reimagined page turns. It also features a new adaptive front light and allows users to try Kindle Unlimited for free for 30 days. Also, at just 7.6mm thin, Voyage is Amazon’s thinnest Kindle ever made.
