This is one very nice ebook reader. The new Kindle Paperwhite is now available to order with immediate shipping. It claims to be the ultimate reading experience and I would have to agree. It sports a brilliant white eInk paper.
Here, according to Amazon, is what the latest member of the Kindle family of ebook readers offers:
The new Paperwhite display offers 62% more pixels, rendering exceptionally sharp, clear, text and images. Now you know that is going to make it easier, and more enjoyable, to read.
Kindle Paperwhite's new screen has 25% higher contrast. Crisp, dark, text against a brilliant white background makes for the perfect reading experience.
Innovative Built-in Light
The Paperwhite design guides light towards the display from above instead of projecting it out at your eyes like back-lit displays. In this way it reduces screen fatigue. You can even adjust the screen's brightness level to create your perfect personal reading experience in all lighting conditions, from bright sunlight to bedtime reading.
Uncompromised Battery Life
With all this you might expect battery issues. A single charge for the Paperwhite lasts up to eight weeks, based on a half hour of reading per day with wireless off and the light setting at 10. Amazon's breakthrough power management technology allows you to leave the light on at all times for the best possible contrast without sacrificing battery life.
