Kindle Paperwhite—World’s Most Advanced E-Reader— Available Starting Today at Gandhi Stores
Reviews of Kindle Paperwhite are overwhelmingly positive and reinforce that Kindle Paperwhite is the best e-reader in the world:
Advanced E-Reader Display
Kindle Paperwhite’s display features a 212 ppi display that makes text in books crisp and clear at any size. Images are sharp, rich and show great detail.
Innovative Built-In Light
Backlit LCD displays direct light up through the display into the user’s eyes. Kindle Paperwhite’s innovative front-lit display guides light underneath an anti-glare layer and down toward the display, away from the reader’s eyes. This means a reader can read for hours with less eye fatigue and strain. The screen brightness is easily adjusted for reading in any light. The Paperwhite display provides an incredible experience in the dark and in direct sunlight.
Breakthrough Battery Life
Kindle Paperwhite’s built-in front light is designed to be used at all times—both in daylight and in a dark room—for the clearest, crispest reading experience. In order to use the light at all times, Kindle Paperwhite sustains the battery life that customers love about Kindle. Amazon’s light guide technology precisely diffuses the light across the screen and only requires four LEDs to light the entire screen (unlike LCD screens which can use up to 50 LEDs). The light guide is so efficient that Kindle Paperwhite has a remarkable 8 weeks of battery life, even with the light on at all times.
Kindle’s free 3G connection means customers never have to hunt for or
pay for a Wi-Fi hotspot—they simply download and read books anytime,
Kindle Paperwhite comes with built-in Wi-Fi, letting readers discover new content at home or on the road anywhere you can access Wi-Fi.
Books in 60 Seconds
Find a book and start reading in seconds with our fast, free wireless delivery. No computer required to download content.
New Touch Technology
Kindle Paperwhite’s new capacitive touch technology is uniquely integrated into the Paperwhite display, allowing for a thinner form factor for Kindle Paperwhite and even better touch accuracy.
Slim and Sleek Design
At just over a third of an inch thin and weighing 213 grams, Kindle Paperwhite is thinner than a magazine and weighs less than a typical paperback.
Every font on Kindle Paperwhite is hand-tuned for maximum readability.
Time to Read
Time to Read helps readers know the amount of time it will take them to finish a chapter or a book. This feature is smart—it personalizes the time for each customer based on their reading speed and is constantly updated as the reader’s speed and habits change. With Time to Read, it’s never been easier to decide when to start a new chapter or finish the chapter you’re reading.
Features Built Just for Readers
