The stylish Kindle Paperwhite eReader is the easy way to put a library in your pocket.
The glare-free 6 inch eInk display is designed to replicate the feeling of reading a regular book with the matte screen reflecting light like ordinary paper. Weighing just 206 g it also feels like a regular book in your hand.
WiFi connectivity gives you quick access to books and content, so there's never any shortage of something to read. Pick from the nearly 1.8 million downloadable titles available, with over 400,000 exclusive to Kindle.
You can even download your favourite magazines and newspapers or borrow books from your public library, then customise them all to be read in the style that fits you best by changing fonts and text sizes.
The built-in light with adjustable brightness means you can read comfortably in any conditions. The light is also directed towards the page, rather than behind the page towards the reader, so there's no danger of screen fatigue.
The Smart Lookup feature integrates a full dictionary with Wikipedia so you can access definitions, characters, settings and more without leaving your page.
- Unsurpassed resolution
The Paperwhite display offers 62% more pixels, and renders exceptionally sharp, clear text and images.
- Stunning contrast
Kindle Paperwhite's screen has 25% higher contrast. Crisp, dark text against a brilliant white background makes for the perfect read.
- Built-in light
Paperwhite guides light towards the display from above instead of projecting it out at your eyes like back-lit displays, thereby reducing screen fatigue. You can adjust your screen's brightness to create a perfect reading experience in all lighting conditions, from bright sunlight to bedtime reading.
- Uncompromised battery life
A single charge lasts up to eight weeks, based on a half hour of reading per day with wireless off and the light setting at 10. The breakthrough power management technology allows you to leave the light on at all times for the best possible contrast without sacrificing battery life.
- Read in bright sunlight with no glare
Kindle Paperwhite has a matte screen that reflects light like ordinary paper so you can read as easily in bright sunlight as in your living room with no glare.
- Read at night
With Kindle Paperwhite, reading in bed just got better. The patented built-in light illuminates the screen, not the entire room, so you won't disturb your partner when you can't put your book down at night.
- Designed for reading
Unlike a backlit tablet display, Kindle Paperwhite guides light towards the surface of the e-ink display from above so that the light never shines directly towards your eyes, allowing you to read comfortably without eye strain.
- Perfectly balanced whiteness
The design uses nanoscale optical diffractive patterns to enable tight control over the direction of the light. Enjoy reading with exceptional lighting uniformity and evenly balanced whiteness across the entire display.
- Adjustable brightness
Your eyes adapt to the amount of light around you, so you'll prefer dimmer light when reading in a dark setting and brighter light when reading in well-lit surroundings. You can adjust the brightness of Kindle Paperwhite across a wide spectrum - from low light to full brightness - so you can read comfortably in any setting.
- Power efficient
Because the patented technology enables fine-grain control over where the light is diffused, Kindle Paperwhite uses low-power LEDs, requiring very little power to evenly illuminate the entire screen.
- Holds up to 1,100 books
You'll never have to leave your favorite titles behind. With Kindle Paperwhite, you can keep your entire library at hand wherever you go.
- Built-in Wi-Fi
Kindle Paperwhite connects easily to your home Wi-Fi network or Wi-Fi hotspots on the road for quick, convenient access to books and content anywhere you can access Wi-Fi.
- Adjustable text sizes
Design your own perfect reading experience by customizing the text size to suit your tastes and reading comfort. Choose from eight text sizes to prevent tired eyes and keep you reading longer.
- Hand-tuned fonts
All six fonts on Kindle Paperwhite have been hand-tuned at the pixel level for maximum readability and comfort. Higher resolution allows for unprecedented sharpness. The new high-resolution display allows for elegant typeface options including Baskerville and Palatino.
- Bookmarks and annotations
Add your own notes to the text just like writing in the margins of a book. Edit, delete, and export your notes. Highlight and clip key passages.
- Notes and sharing
Share highlighted sections, notes, and meaningful quotes on Facebook and Twitter directly from Kindle Paperwhite without leaving the page. See passages frequently highlighted by other Kindle readers to discover interesting and meaningful passages in your books.
- Read with one hand
Lighter and thinner than a paperback, you can comfortably hold Kindle Paperwhite in either hand for long reading sessions without fatigue or discomfort.
- Fast, easy page turns
EasyReach tap zones on Kindle Paperwhite's responsive touchscreen let you tap lightly to turn pages. No need to swipe or use two hands for fast, seamless page turns.
- Special offers and sponsored screensavers
Love deals? You'll receive special offers and sponsored screensavers directly on your Kindle Paperwhite. Offers display on the Kindle Paperwhite screensaver and on the bottom of the home screen while not in use - they don't interrupt reading.
- Beautiful design, perfect fit
The Kindle Paperwhite cover features a premium textured leather exterior and a subtle woven nylon interior to provide the lightest and thinnest form of protection. The integrated magnetic clasp ensures your cover will remain securely closed while in a backpack, purse, or briefcase.
- Auto wake and sleep
The cover automatically wakes your Kindle Paperwhite upon opening and puts your device to sleep when closed, making it easy to dive right back into your book.
