Three new models are attacking the most popular e-book reader

The new generation of Amazon Kindle Paperwhite brings useful improvements.

Contrary to bolder expectations, e-books haven’t really succeeded in triggering a revolution, but they have carved a nice slice out of the market, so dedicated readers are also a catchy product.

Amazon recently unveiled a new generation of its mid-selling model, the mid-range Kindle Paperwhite, which is more desirable in more ways than its predecessor.

Most importantly, this time we get three models right away: the Paperwhite Signature Edition, which offers more storage space and other extras, in addition to the basic Paperwhite Standard Edition, and the Kids Edition, designed specifically for children.

Above all, the new Paperwhite has increased the size of the display: instead of 6-inches, letters can expand on a 6.8-inch panel, while the 300ppi resolution remains. The good news is that the color temperature setting has been added to the repertoire, so we can filter the blue light just like the mobiles, for which we also get an automatic brightness adjustment in the Signature Edition. All three versions guarantee IPX8 water resistance, with which they can last up to 60 minutes at a depth of two meters without soaking.

In addition to these, Amazon promises 20% faster paging, as well as managed to upgrade uptime from 6 to 10 weeks. And the only bonus is that the charging is finally done with a USB-C connector and it only takes 2.5 hours. Wireless Qi charging is also supported according to the requirements of the age.

A later software update will also tweak the interface, Amazon says it will be easier to navigate and browse our library, and the first setup will be faster so we can even do the process via mobile (iOS, Android) via the Kindle app.

Pre-orders for the novelties have already begun, with Amazon promising delivery by October 27th. As for pricing, the 8GB Standard Edition costs $ 140, the 32GB Signature Edition costs $ 190, and the Kids Edition costs $ 160. The latter guarantees ad-free reading and comes with a “kid-friendly” case and a 12-month membership to Amazon Kids +.
