Amazon debuts the next generation Kindle Paperweight and the Kindle Paperweight with USB C Port
A new option to get started is a simplified setup on the Kindle app for iOS and Android —just pair your device to your phone so you can set it up in fewer steps. Settings are accessible in one swipe from wherever you are in your device, making it quick and easy to adjust features such as screen brightness or turn on airplane or dark mode, without losing your place. These new software features will roll out through the end of the year.
Features that Enrich Your Reading Experience
By design, the all-new Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition have been purpose-built to help you get lost in your favorite book. Unlike most tablets and phones, a Kindle has no glare and won’t distract you with social media, emails, text messages, or notifications. The all-new Kindle Paperwhite includes features that have long made the Kindle family the best device for reading, enhancing the experience beyond a print book, including:
Whispersync—Saves and synchronizes your last page read, bookmarks, and annotations from your Kindle eBooks across all of your Kindle devices and apps, so you can pick up where you left off on any device.
Book Covers—Let’s you see the cover of the book you are currently reading on the lock screen.
Word Wise—Provides short, simple definitions that automatically appear above difficult words in many popular English language titles, so children or those learning a new language can keep reading with fewer interruptions.
Accessibility—Allows customers to access devices and reading applications that work with assistive technology, features that support a variety of reading needs, and tools that enable anyone to become a Kindle author.
The World’s Best eBook Store
As with all Kindle e-readers, the new Kindle Paperwhite models come with instant access to the Kindle Store. Customers can access the Kindle Store on Amazon US, which includes a massive selection of over 1 million eBooks in more than 40 languages including English, Arabic, and Hindi. You can try a book before purchasing by downloading a free sample.
