Amazon has released all-new Kindle Paperwhite. With a waterproof design, the eReader lets you comfortably enjoy your favorite books even in the bath. Need more features? Let’s have a look.
The all-new Kindle Paperwhite measures 6.6 x 4.6 x 0.32 inches and weighs 6.4 oz (6.8 oz for WiFi + 4G LTE). As we can see from the images, the new Kindle Paperwhite shows off a low-profile and minimal appearance design, and compared with the original Kindle Paperwhite, it features a smoother rear cover plus matte finished coating in order to provide a comfortable and firm grip experience. More importantly, the new model meets IPX8 rating, which means it withstands immersion in 2 meters of fresh water for 60 minutes, so you’re free to read at beach, by the pool or in the bath.
The original 4GB internal storage has been increased to 8GB so that your Kindle Paperwhite can hold more magazines, comics and audiobooks, and an optional 32GB storage capacity allows it to handle more content. Furthermore, the eReader features built-in Bluetooth technology so that you can listen to your audiobooks or books with text-to-speech using Bluetooth headphones or speakers.
Moreover, the 6-inch E-Ink display with touchscreen features 300 ppi pixel density, 6-level gray scale and built-in adjustable 5-LED backlit, so you can comfortably read indoors and outdoors, day and night. In addition, a single charge lasts up to 6 weeks.
Amazon all-new Kindle Paperwhite is priced at $129.99 USD ($159.99 for 32GB model). If you’re interested, jump to the product page for its more details.
