Amazon releases new Kindle Paperwhite

Kindle Paperwhite brings back the good old days of e-reading

Amazon releases new Kindle Paperwhite

Amazon’s Kindle line has been in the market since 2007 with the original e-reader having a monochrome E-Ink display. This device was primarily for e-book reading and nothing else. What was great bout that first Amazon Kindle is the great battery life and simplicity of the device.

Fast forward to 2012 where the latest Kindle Fire HD Tablet wants to put its mark on the tablet market place.

But there is the Kindle Paperwhite. This e-reader shows that Amazon still knows what an e-reader is.

The Kindle Paperwhite is a better version of the Kindle Touch, which was released last year. Unlike the Kindle Fire HD, the Kindle Paperwhite thrives for e-book reading.

It is thinner, shorter and narrower than the Kindle Touch. Unfortunately, Amazon removed the headphone jack and speakers on the Kindle Paperwhite. So say goodbye to listening to MP3s and audiobooks.

The Kindle Paperwhite has a much improved screen contrast and resolution and Amazon added illumination for better reading in poor lighting conditions. It still measure about 6 inches diagonally.

Just in time for the Holidays, the Kindle Paperwhite is a perfect gadget for you if you would only want to read and read and not do multiple things on your device.
