Amazon appears to have discontinued the Kindle Voyage

At the end of July, Amazon quietly removed its Kindle Voyage
from its storefront, and appears to have discontinued the line
of eBook readers, according to
TheEbookReader
and
GoodEReader
.

Both sites report that Amazon removed the model (refurbished
versions are still available), as well as from its comparison
table, leaving only the basic Kindle, mid-range Kindle
Paperwhite, and premium Kindle Oasis.

The Voyage was
originally released in 2014
and featured some additional
perks above the basic Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite: it was
thinner and lighter, a glass screen, haptic buttons to turn
pages, and a “simple
and utilitarian
” design. But it came at a higher price:
$200, and with the
release of the $250 Kindle Oasis in 2016
, the Voyage seems
to have been overtaken for the premium slot in the Kindle
family.
