That is the Goldilocks in Amazon’s line and our present PJDM Editors’ Selection within the class. Listed here are some issues we love concerning the Kindle Paperwhite:

  • It is 10% thinner and lighter than the earlier model.
  • It has a “flush-front” design with a again product of a softer, grippy materials as a substitute of arduous plastic. 
  • It is a absolutely waterproof Kindle, just like the high-end Kindle Oasis, and has a plastic display that Amazon says is shatter- and scratch-resistant.
  • It has built-in Bluetooth, so you possibly can obtain Amazon Audible audiobooks and take heed to them with wi-fi headphones.

As an illustration, USB-C charging could possibly be added and maybe the lighting scheme could possibly be up to date, however we would not anticipate any dramatic upgrades.

The most recent iteration of Amazon’s entry-level e book reader, which Amazon merely calls the Kindle, now has a self-illuminated display and an upgraded design. We want the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite, which has a higher-resolution show (textual content and pictures seem a bit sharper), is waterproof and has a barely higher lighting scheme. However in case you do not need to spend a lot for an e-reader, the usual Kindle is an efficient possibility, particularly when it is discounted.
