Just announced: Amazon.com's new Kindle Touch, a $99 touchscreen e-reader with Wifi; a Kindle Touch 3G at $149; a non-touch Kindle priced at $79. And the piece de resistance, the Kindle Fire, a full-color Android touchscreen that does movies, songs, apps, books, magazines, everything, syncs wirelessly and can search the web. CNN reports 16 million colors, 169 pixels per inch, Gorilla glass, just like the iPad, and priced at $199. Ships November 15th, best to order ASAP. Um, excuse us while we go launch our "I love Jeff Bezos" fanblog. [Fortune]
