Old Kindles will soon lose internet access, but Amazon is offering upgrade incentives

If you’re in the US and have a first or second generation Kindle, or a second generation Kindle DX, then you’ll soon find your device without internet access – meaning you won’t be able to access the Kindle Store from the device to buy or download books, though of course you can still hook your Kindle up to a computer to transfer content.

Those who own a 3G-enabled Kindle Keyboard (3rd generation), Kindle Touch (4th generation), Kindle Paperwhite (5th generation, 6th generation or 7th generation), Kindle Voyage (7th generation), or Kindle Oasis (8th generation) meanwhile will still be able to access the internet over Wi-Fi, but not over 3G.
