Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Reader


Build and Display

The latest Amazon Kindle Paperwhite looks a lot like its predecessor, showing off a plastic body. The biggest difference from the previous-generation Kindle Paperwhite is the screen.

This new one sports a sharper 6-inch E Ink Carta display with two times the pixels of the original Paperwhite. The touchscreen has a resolution of 1440 x 1080 pixels for a pixel density of 300 ppi – similar to what you get on the top-end Amazon Kindle Voyage.

It has integrated adjustable light to make for comfortable reading both day and night. Amazon says the display reads like actual paper. However, the Paperwhite is the heaviest Kindle on the market at a weight of up to 217 grams.

The Kindle Paperwhite reader still uses the same 1GHz processor found on its predecessor. But RAM capacity has been doubled to 512 MB, from 256 MB, for smoother performance when navigating through or downloading books.

Inbuilt storage memory of 4 GB is enough to store several thousands of e-books, helping to make the absence of a microSD card slot a non-issue. Amazon Kindle Paperwhite also offers unlimited Cloud storage for Amazon content.
