Amazon Kindle (2022) — $85, was $100
The 2022 release of the Amazon Kindle is the easiest way to read e-books on the go — and also the cheapest Kindle Black Friday deal among different models. The device has a 6-inch e-ink display with a resolution of 300 pixels per inch, up from 167 ppi on the previous version, with a backlight that lets you manually adjust the screen’s brightness. It comes with 16GB of storage, which is enough space for thousands of books, and a battery that can last up to six weeks on a single charge. After linking your Kindle to your Amazon account, you’ll have access to the Kindle Store, where you can search and purchase books, as well as download the best free books for Kindle.
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (16GB) — $100, was $150
The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite, which has a 6.8-inch e-ink screen and 300 ppi resolution, is a definite upgrade over the basic Kindle. Between the Kindle and the Kindle Paperwhite, the latter’s advantages include an IPX8 waterproof rating, which will let you use the device in the bathtub or swimming pool without fear of damage; a long battery life; and the option to go online using a cellular connection.
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Kids (8GB) – $105, was $160
The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Kids offers the same specifications as the Kindle Paperwhite with its 6.8-inch e-ink screen with 300 ppi resolution, but also comes with a one-year subscription to Amazon Kids+. The service offers thousands of books through Amazon’s Audible and hundreds of audiobooks geared toward children, such as the entire Harry Potter series. After the free year, you can continue to subscribe for $5 per month.
Amazon Kindle Oasis – $185, was $280
The Amazon Kindle Oasis tops Digital Trends’ best e-book readers because it takes everything great about other Kindle models, including an e-ink screen with 300 ppi resolution, an IPX8 waterproof rating, and a long battery life. Can last up to six weeks on a single charge, but adds improvements like a larger 7-inch display, a design that’s comfortable to hold with wll-placed buttons and expandable storage to 32GB. If you’re going to invest in an e-book reader thanks to the Kindle Black Friday deals, the Amazon Kindle Oasis should be at the top of your list.
