A Wi-Fi version of Amazon's (AMZN +2.1%) 8.9" Kindle Fire HD will sell for $299 (well below the 9.7" iPad), while a 7" model will go for $199. The latter arrives on Sep. 14, but the former won't ship until Nov. 20. Amazon is also rolling out a 4G version of the 8.9" model that costs $499, but offers 250MB/month of downloads and 20GB of cloud storage for just $50/year, undercutting carrier data plans. Amazon's Whispersync tech is being extended to games and audiobooks. No smartphone was unveiled. (live blog) (more)
