Amazon’s 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 an array of other new features.

 

New features include:

  • New display technology with higher contrast and better reflectivity which means whites are whiter and blacks are blacker.
  • Next generation built-in light—guides light toward the surface of the display so you can read comfortably without eyestrain.
  • New, 25 percent faster processor—books open and pages turn faster for a seamless reading experience.
  • New touch technology—19 percent tighter touch grid makes Kindle Paperwhite respond even more accurately to the smallest touches, while still avoiding accidental page turns.
  • 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 screenshots: 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. 
  • New Smart Lookup—integrates a full dictionary, with X-Ray and Wikipedia so you can access definitions, characters, settings and more without leaving your page or losing your place.
  • New In-line Footnotes—with a tap, read the complete text of each footnote in-line without changing the page or losing your place in the book. 

Kindle Paperwhite is available for pre-order at www.amazon.com/kindle-paperwhite-global www.amazon.com/kindle-paperwhite-global and ships October 1.
