The New Kindle Paperwhite

Published By

Like many of my generation, I was introduced to the world of ebooks through the original Kindle. Even in its unrefined form, the Kindle blew me away—giving me access to hundreds of books that I could take with me while traveling. But on the downside, the reading quality was always disrupted by anything short of perfect lighting.

With the new Kindle Paperwhite, all those lighting and quality issues have been done away with. An adjustable warm backlight pairs with a flush-front design, thin borders, and a 300-pixel-per-inch screen to make a glare-free display that feels darned close to reading a paperback. And with a ten week battery life and light waterproofing, it’s fully capable of becoming your surest travel companion.
