Lightest ereader in the world?

The new iPod Touch 5th generation has the same 4-inch Retina (super-sharp) screen as the new iPhone 5. And the Touch is only 6mm thick and only weighs… 88 grams! Hokey smokes, a super-flat pocket-ereader at 88 grams! 
It is $300 though. 
But if you can do with 23 grams more, a bit shorter screen, a poorer camera and such things, you can still get a 4th generation one for $200. Still a very good ereader if you have the eyesight for the small device. 

And that's not even mentioning all the zombies, egg-stealing pigs, and space invaders you can get to kill on it.

Not to forget that the clunky first gen Kindle was $400!

The 4th gen DOES have a camera... in fact 2 of them (front and back) but pretty poor quality. Intended only for FaceTime calls.

Aha, thank you.
