It is the thinnest and lightest Kindle Paperwhite yet, 8.18mm thick and weighing 182g, and features a soft, gripping material so it's more comfortable for long reading sessions.
The thinnest, lightest Kindle Paperwhite yet-with a flush-front design and 300 ppi glare-free display that reads like real paper even in bright sunlight. Now, the Kindle Paperwhite is finally water-resistant with a rating of IPX8, meaning you can dunk in up to two meters of fresh water for up to sixty minutes.
Now with Audible. Pair with Bluetooth headphones or speakers to listen to your story. Today, it has announced its latest model of the Kindle Paperwhite, bringing welcome improvements over predecessors. Of course, no one's gonna do that, but at least now your Kindle won't get ruined if you accidentally spill something on it or decide to take it to the beach or pool. Now, for a limited time, you also get three months of Kindle Unlimited for free on pre-orders. It has a 6-inch, 300ppi touch display with five backlighting LEDs, and the new screen is now flush with the black bezels around it. We can probably expect to see the updated e-reader here in time for the festive season. The new Kindle Paperwhite has got two qualities compared to the previous one and that is being thinner and lighter. The new Paperwhite features meaningful upgrades in a package that doesn't stray from Amazon's familiar formula. Users will now also be able to save multiple reading settings, selecting the font, boldness level and orientation settings directly from the main menu.
I love ereaders. They're focused, calm, and peaceful. If you thought the book basically peaked somewhere between the arrival of the printing press in 1439 and the first Kindle Paperwhite in 2012, well... that's just a sign you don't have much imagination. The 32 GB with free cellular connectivity is $239.99.
But all in all, Amazon has essentially turned the new Paperwhite into a waterproof, updated Voyage.
Amazon will also be updating the Paperwhite's home screen and adding personalization settings. Where the old Voyage used to cost $200, the new Paperwhite starts at just $129.99 for the 8GB, Wi-Fi model (which is $10 more than the old Paperwhite used to cost).
