Amazon mistakenly reveals new Kindle Paperwhite: Looks the same, sports new display tech

Amid several bits of Amazon news this morning, it looks like someone mistakenly pulled the trigger on a product page for a new version of the company’s flagship Kindle Paperwhite e-reader.

As Engadget reports, the listing notes that the new Paperwhite sports new display technology (promising higher contrast and better reflectivity), a 25 percent processor, and a refined touch response. Amazon also mentioned that integration for Goodreads, the book recommendation service it bought in March, is coming soon.

Assuming the details are accurate, Amazon will sell the Wi-Fi only version of the new Paperwhite for $119, while the 3G version will run your $180. The page also lists a September 30 shipping date for the new Kindles.

The product page was taken down by the time of this post, but its details seem legitimate. The Paperwhite was a major upgrade for its Kindle lineup last year, so I didn’t expect the company to offer anything drastically different this year. Amazon also seems far more interested in focusing on its Kindle Fire tablet lineup, rather than its aging e-reader segment.
