Amazon reveals revamped lighter, thinner Kindle Paperwhite

17 October 2018

Amazon has launched a new version of its popular Kindle Paperwhite e-reader, which is thinner, lighter and now finally water resistant.

The new Kindle Paperwhite is available for pre-order today starting at $129.99 here and will start shipping November 7.

Improved display: The six-inch, high resolution 300 ppi display created to reproduce crisp, laser-quality text that reads like real paper includes five LEDs and an adjustable front light for a uniform, glare-free display created to work under all conditions, including even direct sunlight.

The new Paperwhite, which is the first redesign of the company's mid-range e-reader since 2015, also borrows some of the best features from the high-end Kindle Oasis, namely a waterproof body (rated IPX8) and the ability to display white text on a black background. "We've also included six months of Kindle Unlimited for free so you can enjoy even more great content, including books, audiobooks, comics, and magazines".

The waterproofing means users can read on the beach, in the tub, and around water in general and not worry about the safety of their Kindle.

Now with Audible. Pair with Bluetooth headphones or speakers to listen to your story. Like all Kindles, the new Paperwhite has a battery capable of going weeks at a time between charges. You will also find new information like how many days in the past month you read along with fun facts and tips to help you know more about your Kindle.

Get instant access to new releases and bestsellers, plus over a million titles at $2.99 or less.

For those of us who still prefer reading on books on a device that has a glare-free display, Amazon has updated its Kindle Paperwhite ebook reader.

It's the thinnest and lightest Kindle Paperwhite yet, measuring 8.18mm thick and weighing 182g.

This new feature, along with a redesigned Home screen, will be coming to older devices as well as the new Paperwhite.

The 32 GB with free cellular connectivity is £219.99.
