The price for the Wi-Fi only Kindle Paperwhite will start from 849 yuan (US$134). It costs US$119 in the US. Amazon will also sell 3G Kindle in China as well as Kindle Fire. The sales will begin on June 7, and said yesterday.

Suning, one of China's major electronics retailers, will also sell the Kindle devices in the domestic market.
