Eric Saarnio, head of Amazon Devices in Europe, said: "Customers love the Kindle Paperwhite, and we're excited to bring premium features - like a thinner and lighter flush-front design, additional storage, waterproofing and Audible - to our most popular Kindle". But the newmodel does support Bluetooth-connected headphones or speakers, which should make listening to Audible books even easier.
It is the lightest and thinnest Kindle Paperwhite, measuring 8.18mm in thickness and weighing in at 182g. It includes five LEDs and an adjustable front light for a glare-free display in any setting, even direct sunlight. The new Paperwhite has the same IPX8 rating as the Kindle Oasis, which means you can dunk it in fresh water for an hour. The 8GB Paperwhite will cost $129.99, while the 32GB model will retail for $159.99.
Amazon has added Bluetooth to the Paperwhite, as well, so you can now use Audible to listen to your favorite stories. After three months, customers can subscribe to Kindle Unlimited plans starting at Rs 150 per month.
You'll be able to buy the new Kindle Paperwhite from November 7, but pre-orders have already opened on Amazon for the ereader. Now, the newest Paperwhite appears to be a mix of the old model and the now-defunct Kindle Voyage (the latter disappeared from Amazon's site about a month ago).
The most popular Kindle is now waterproof, so you can read in even more places.
The Kobo Forma has an 8 inch display E INK Mobius and Carta HD screen, making it more flexible than the Oasis. This has been the first update to the best selling e-book reader.
Kindle Unlimited is a subscription service that costs $10/month and gives you access to more than one million titles from the Kindle Store. Despite all these additions, though, the new Paperwhite is 23 grams lighter than the old model and nearly a full millimeter thinner at 8.18mm.
You can also opt for other things like more storage and cellular 4G connectivity. It now comes in 8- and 32-gigabyte versions. You can personalise your reading experience on the Kindle with multiple reading and orientation settings which you can switch to quickly from the settings menu.
Amazon's new Kindle Paperwhite e-reader is coming out at just the right time.
