Review: Amazon Kindle Paperwhite

Amazon has announced their new improved version of Kindle reader. The new Amazon Kindle Paperwhite is the first Kindle with a front-lit or built-in light that allows reading wherever you are and anytime you need to.

The rig is a 6-inch screen with a 1024 x 768 resolution and provides improved experience, better hardware, and of course a front-lit screen.

The overall hardware of the Kindle Paperwhite is somewhat similar to the previous Kindle Touch. It is a light weight device that weighs just 7.5 oz and 9mm thin.

The Kindle Paperwhite comes with a slightly smaller bezel and a nice black casing. The dedicated buttons have been removed, but the capacitive touch display has been improved.

Under the hood, the device holds a 2GB of internal storage, but lacks a micro-SD slot for expanded storage.

Other specifications include a dedicated power button, LED notification light, and micro-USB if you need to charge the eReader. Amazon claims 8 weeks of battery life.

On the connectivity front, the device supports 3G and WiFi. The Wi-Fi model is available at a starting price $119 and the 3G model for $179.


It is a perfect device for those who want the best possible reading experience.
