Unboxing: Amazon Kindle (2011)

Amazon’s latest Kindle has arrived, much smaller than the one we remember. The new Kindle weighs only 170 grams – lighter than most books – and features the same 6 inch e-ink screen seen on previous models.

WiFi is built-in here on this model, with a battery that’s said to last up to one month.

The box doesn’t have much in it, as you can see in the gallery below, with the Kindle, an instruction card, and the microUSB to USB charging cable.

In case you’re curious to how small the new Kindle is, the last image in our unboxing shows it sitting next to an iPad 2.
