The new generation of Kindle Paperwhite is launched on Amazon China today. Only one model is available that is sold at RMB899, a little bit higher a price than that for the one without special offers in USD. Specs and new features are no different from the US model that was launched in September this year.

According to a letter from Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, to Chinese readers, Amazon China now offers 60,000-ish digital books, half of which are sold below RMB4.99 (about $0.8). More than 6000 are for free.
