The latest incarnation of Amazon's ebook reader comes packing an illuminated touchscreen – which, in the US, is used to display Special Offers and adverts on the lock screen and screensaver. For US$20, you can upgrade to an ad-free variant.

Or would you rather save a few quid and have a few Kindle Daily Deals on your display? Let us know on Twitter.
