The foregone pastime of reading physical books is dwindling, and Amazon’s latest Kindle Paperwhite is here to push the gap even further.
E-readers are far from new, but the revamped Kindle aims to set a new standard for the gadget. It boasts a crisp 6.8-inch display, razor-thin borders, and an IPX8 rating, going to show the highly-capable release aims for optimized portability. So whether you find yourself by the pool or on a mid-day flight, you can get your reading in.
To make things even easier, it features a flush-front design with a glare-free display that reads similarly to paper, allowing you to utilize it on sunny days. Additionally, it has an adjustable warm light that shifts the color of your screen from white to a soothing shade of amber, which is ideal for reducing eye strain in low-light environments. As with any other Kindle model, you have access to Kindle Unlimited’s boundless library of over 2 million titles and thousands upon thousands of audiobooks. Plus, if you have an Audible subscription, you can listen to your most recent read on the go.
Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite is available exclusively through the online retailer starting from $140. Moreover, the new 16GB option is available for $150 — that’s right, for a mere $10, you can double up on storage space.
