With it's touch screen, brilliant features like X-Ray and a 20% faster processor that delivers even quicker page turns, the new Kindle from Amazon is better than ever. Designed specifically for reading, Kindle reads like real paper, with no screen glare, even in bright sunlight, and it includes room to store thousands of eBooks, making it simple to take your library with you.
Built for reading
Designed to look and read like real paper, Kindle’s E-Ink screen uses ink particles and hand-built fonts to display sharp, dark text that reads like a printed page. It's easy on the eyes, no matter how bright the room is and will let you adjust your text to find the font and size that's most comfortable for you. Kindle is lighter than most paperback books, making it easy and comfortable to hold in one hand for longer.
A new touch screen interface makes it even easier to find your way around your Kindle. Opening books and turning pages is as simple as tapping on the screen, while it makes features like highlighting, the built-in dictionary and X-Ray easy to use. You can use Page Flip to skim page-by-page, scan by chapter or skip to the end without losing your place, and easily return to your margin notes or highlighted sections.
Kindle can do so much more than a paperback, too. X-Ray will show you relevant passages that relate to an idea, character place or topic, while you can discover even more by using Smart Lookup. Smart Lookup displays definitions, characters and settings from sources including The New Oxford English Dictionary, X-Ray and Wikipedia without losing your place. Words you've looked up before are automatically added to Vocabulary Builder, which lets you quiz yourself to expand your knowledge and reinforce retention.
