First-Ever Paperwhite Display

Paperwhite-the ultimate reading experience

Brilliant Resolution

The Paperwhite display offers 62% more pixels, and renders exceptionally sharp, clear text and images.

Stunning Contrast

Kindle Paperwhite's screen has 25% higher contrast. Crisp, dark text against a brilliant white background makes for the perfect read. p>

Up to One Month Battery Life

No battery anxiety - read for up to one month on a single charge.

Innovative Built-in Light

Paperwhite guides light towards the display from above instead of projecting it out at your eyes like back-lit displays, thereby reducing screen fatigue. You can adjust your screen's brightness to create a perfect reading experience in all lighting conditions, from bright sunlight to bedtime reading.

Uncompromised Battery Life

A single charge lasts up to eight weeks, based on half an hour of reading per day with wireless off and the light setting at 10. The breakthrough power management technology allows you to leave the light on at all times for the best possible contrast without sacrificing battery life.

Escape into a great story Anytime. Anywhere

  1.  Best ebook reader out there 30 April, 2014 On
    I purchased kindle paperwhite yesterday itself and i really loved it. After comparing with other ebook readers i found this one the best which does its job as mentioned. Some of the pros and cons i could figure out are listed below:

    1) The best display in its class (E-ink). Seriously there is no overhead/strain on your eyes. One can read any book, pdf document for longer times as if one is reading some physical book.
    2) in contrast to its predecessor, it has no physical key other than power on/off key. This model is completely touch based and quite responsive.
    3) There is one experimental browser application also present in this with which one can browser internet and watch html documents easily.
    4) One can buy book on kindle store directly through the paperwhite when connected to 3G or Wi-Fi. (though credit card needs to be linked with Amazon account).
    5)There is inbuilt dictionary so while reading any book or document simply long press on the word and dictionary will pop out and display the meaning of that word.
    6) All the words which one is searched for the meanings will be stored in other application named Vocabulary builder which later can be used to practice those words in sentences and then enhances your vocabulary. Awesome right !!!
    7) No glare like other tablets.

    1) There is no support for Audio and Video codecs in this obviously as for these media stuff you have tablets already in the market.
    2) Though it supports pdf documents to read but they are not as easy to read as kindle format books are.
    3) Opening a pdf document with high resolution images in kindle paperwhite makes the pdf reader application crash.

    Final Verdict:
    If you are book reader and loves technology then this is the device for you and it will definitely disappoint an avid reader. Just go for it.
    Thank you for your feedback Was this review helpful to you?
