Welcome to Tuesday evening, everyone. The afternoon brought us a number of interesting stories, including brand new shots of what appears to be the long-rumored iPad Mini.

Kindle Paperwhite arrives with backlit screen

Just as we were expecting, Amazon pulled the veil off the newest iteration of the Kindle today. Dubbed the Kindle Paperwhite, by far the most noteworthy feature about this new eReader is its display. With it, we're seeing Amazon make a departure from the Pearl E Ink display it has used in previous Kindles and instead go for a white display that comes complete with a backlight.

Amazon’s new Kindles are almost here (and lateness doesn’t matter)

Amazon’s new Kindles are almost here (and lateness doesn’t matter)

The clock is ticking, and Amazon is building up to wow us at its Kindle event in just a few hours time. Expectations are high, and yet Amazon is - unusually for the company - playing catch-up, in hardware if not market share.

Amazon clearing tablet inventory

Amazon clearing tablet inventory

It appears that Amazon may be feeling the heat of the Nexus 7 wave - or perhaps even the oncoming Apple iPad mini - as they place essentially their entire Kindle collection on sale for back-to-school. Though many of the sales have halted here on the morning after a super-sale weekend, Amazon did have the Kindle DX up for 29% off (that's $110!) and cases, speaker docks, sleeves of all kinds, and more. This could mean several things, but what we're banking on is this: a whole new model - or models - coming on quick.
