The all-new Kindle E-reader is thinner and lighter than the previous-generation Kindle, and now available in your choice of black or white.
Thin and light for one-handed reading
The all-new Kindle is 11% thinner and 16% lighter than the previous-generation Kindle, making it easy and comfortable to hold in one hand.
No glare in bright sunlight
Unlike reflective tablet and smartphone screens, the latest Kindle reads like paper – no annoying glare, even in bright sunlight.
Reads like the printed page
Kindle uses actual ink particles and proprietary, hand-built fonts to create crisp text similar to what you see in a physical book. The blacks and whites on the screen are uniform, improving image quality.
Weeks-long battery life
Kindle does not require power to maintain a page of text, allowing you to read for weeks on a single charge.
Unlike tablets, no blue light to disturb your sleep
Recent studies by the Harvard Health Publication have shown that evening exposure to blue light from backlit screens such as tablets and smartphones can suppress the body’s production of melatonin, a naturally occurring hormone that helps the body fall asleep. Because the Kindle display emits no light, you can read anytime without losing any sleep.
Kindle is purposely designed as a dedicated e-reader. Indulge your love of reading without interruptions such as e-mail alerts or push notifications.
Go beyond a book with the following features:
Look it up instantly without leaving your page
Kindle's Smart Lookup feature integrates a full dictionary with X-Ray and Wikipedia so you can access definitions, characters, settings and more without leaving your page or losing your place.
Pick up where you left off
Whispersync technology synchronises your last page read, bookmarks and annotations across all your devices so you can pick up exactly where you left off reading.
X-Ray lets you explore the “bones of the book”. See all the passages across a book that mention relevant ideas, fictional characters, historical figures, places, or topics of interest. X-Ray’s new timeline view lets you easily flip through notable passages to remind yourself of what’s happened in the book, or navigate easily through images.
