New Kindle Paperwhite Added To The Kindle Family

December 21, 2012 ( December 24, 2012 -- One of the latest updates to the Kindle family, along with the Kindle Fire HD, is the Kindle Paperwhite. The Paperwhite is Kindle's e-reader tablet, built for those who simply want to read, and read a lot. The latest Paperwhite offers some great features that book lovers are looking for and need in an e-reader.

First, the display is improved for reading ability. As most e-reader fans know, it's best to read from an e-reader screen that is not backlit compared to a backlit tablet. The contrast and light does not hurt the eyes and it reads like a book. While the previous Paperwhite needed a light source for reading in the dark, it no longer needs such a source. Now, the Paperwhite has a built in light source that does not impede reading ability or hurt the eye, so readers can enjoy their books at night.

The battery of any device is always a hot topic. The Paperwhite, dedicated to books only, is packed with an incredible 8-week battery, or so described by Amazon. Claims are that readers can enjoy reading for 8 weeks even with the light on. If these claims are true, then Amazon knocks many e-readers out of the ring with this type of battery. Users can worry less about charging and more about their books.

Built in Wi-Fi allows the user to purchase books at a rapid pace, so you never miss a beat while you're reading. Also, the new Paperwhite comes with 6 font style options and 8 adjustable sizes for the reader. Everyone is different and has different preferences, and now the reader can tune the e-reader to their reading desires.

While Wi-Fi is nothing new for e-reader users, Paperwhite now comes in a 3G model, offering download capabilities on the go.

This is the new Paperwhite, with new additions, features and functions. It's time to read in comfort.
