Today, Amazon announced that the world’s best-selling e-reader–Kindle Paperwhite–is getting even better. The all-new Kindle Paperwhite features new display technology with higher contrast, the next generation built-in light, a faster processor, the latest touch technology, and exclusive new features designed from the ground up for readers. The All-New Kindle Paperwhite is available for pre-order starting today. The price is $119 Wi-Fi with Special Offers; $139 Wi-Fi without Special Offers; $189 3G and Wi-Fi.
Here’s what makes the all-new Kindle Paperwhite better than ever:
•New display technology with higher contrast–Kindle Paperwhite’s display is the most advanced e-reader display ever constructed. Higher contrast and better reflectivity means whites are whiter and blacks are blacker, so the pages are virtually indistinguishable from a physical book. You won’t find this level of contrast with any other e-reader display.
•Next generation built-in light–Guides light toward the surface of the display so you can read comfortably without eyestrain.
•New, 25% faster processor–Books open and pages turn faster for a seamless reading experience.
•New touch technology–19% tighter touch grid makes Kindle Paperwhite respond even more accurately to the smallest touches.
•New Kindle Page Flip–Skim page-by-page, scan by chapter, or skip to the end of your book, all without losing your place. For example, it’s now easy to quickly flip back and forth to that map of Beyond the Wall in A Dance With Dragons. See a screenshot: www.amazon.com/kindle-page-flip.
•New Goodreads Integration–Combines the world’s largest e-reading community and the world’s largest community of book lovers. Join over 20 million other readers and see what your friends are reading, share highlights, and rate the books you read with Goodreads on Kindle, available exclusively from Amazon. See screenshots: www.amazon.com/kindle-goodreads.
•New Kindle FreeTime–Built-in parental controls have been extended to give parents a simple, engaging way to encourage kids to spend more time reading. Hand-select books for your kids to read, and hand out achievement badges when they hit reading milestones. A progress report keeps parents updated on total time spent reading, number of words looked up, badges earned and books finished. See screenshots: www.amazon.com/new-kindle-freetime.
•New Vocabulary Builder–Compiles words you look up in the dictionary into an easy-to-access list. Use these lists to quiz yourself with flashcards and instantly see words in context. See screenshots: www.amazon.com/kindle-vocabulary.
•New Smart Lookup–Integrates a full dictionary definition with other reference information about a word, character, topic or book via X-Ray and Wikipedia. For example, using an ordinary dictionary to look up “credit default swaps” in Michael Lewis’ The Big Short would give the individual definitions of “credit,” “default” and “swaps.” Smart Lookup recognizes this is an important topic and phrase in the book, and gives you the correct definition of “credit default swaps” via X-Ray. See a screenshot: www.amazon.com/kindle-lookup.
•New In-line Footnotes–With a single tap, read the complete text of each footnote in-line without changing the page or losing your place in the book. See a screenshot: www.amazon.com/kindle-footnotes.
•New Kindle MatchBook–New benefit lets customers purchase Kindle editions of print books purchased from Amazon–past, present and future–for $2.99 or less.
The Goodreads and FreeTime features will be delivered later this year as part of a free software update.
