The company has unveiled the Kindle Touch e-reader for $99, a full $40 cheaper than Barnes & Noble's popular Nook Simple.

If you want the 3G data version of it, the cost is $150.

Additionally, Amazon has set a new low price for e-readers with its latest E-ink Kindle, which is "small enough to fit in your back pocket" and will cost just $79.

The smaller device is "75 percent lighter" than current Kindles, says CEO Jeff Bezos.

Both are available today, although they have not shown up on Amazon just yet.
