Here is a recap of the tweets from this morning’s announcement from Amazon for their new Kindle Touch’s and Kindle Fire.  Bottom line: The new Fire for $199 with tons of features/services, the black/white Touch 3G is $149 or WiFi for$99, and a super affordable and ultra-sleek new Kindle for just $79
