What's Different About the New Kindle Paperwhite?

New Paperwhite

Kindle Paperwhite is already the best e-reader on the market, but now it has been improved in ways that make it even better. If you want to know what has actually changed in the new version to decide if the Paperwhite is right for you, here is what you need to know.

About Paperwhite

First of all, you should know that this Kindle has some important features that make if far superior to a common tablet for reading. In fact, if what you really want to do is read rather than use tablet apps, a solid e-reader is going to make you happier in the long run. With a Kindle you get access to millions of books, as well as magazines and newspapers, and you can even borrow many books for free or check out a book from your local library – directly to your Kindle.

The Best Points

  • There is no glare in sunlight, so you can read your favorite book at the beach
  • The battery lasts for days, unlike a tablet, so you don’t have to read next to an outlet
  • The weight is so light that you will not get tired of holding this electronic reader
  • You won’t be bothered by email and app notifications that may distract you on a tablet
  • The light is much easier on your eyes, so reading at night won’t end with eye strain like it might with a tablet

Other Cool Stuff You Can Do

You can easily highlight your favorite text and even send it via social networks to friends. The text size is simple to change, making it easy to read for near or far-sighted people. The Paperwhite can hold over 1,000 books – try carrying that many around with you or building a bookshelf big enough to hold so many books. Since it’s a Kindle, you still get Whispersync – that technology built right in that lets you pick up right where you left off. There are no other bookmarks needed thanks to this handy feature.
