The All-New Kindle Paperwhite is more readable than ever. Featuring a higher resolution screen and a font that's been specially designed for digital screens, plus your favourite returning features such as an improved Carta E-Ink screen, a built-in light that won't tire your eyes and a long battery life, the Kindle Paperwhite takes eReading up a notch.

Next-generation reading experience
At 300 pixels per inch, the All-New Kindle Paperwhite features twice as many pixels as the previous generation, for sharp, print-quality text. It also includes an exclusive font, Bookerly, which has been inspired by the best fonts in modern print books and crafted to ensure great readability at any font size.

Built-in light
Paperwhite features an innovative built-in light to deliver a brighter, evenly-lit display. It guides light from above towards the display instead of projecting it towards the users eyes like with a traditional backlit display, reducing the chance of screen fatigue. It also illuminates the screen instead of the entire room, so you can read in the dark without disturbing others.

E-ink touch screen
Designed to look and read like real paper, Kindle’s E-Ink screen features a matte screen and no backlighting, preventing glare so you can read just as easily at the beach as you would in your living room. The responsive touch grid allows you to interact with menus, settings and even highlight words and phrases simply by touching the screen.

Recharge once a month, not once a day
Kindle Paperwhite benefits from an incredibly long battery life. You’ll be able to go for six weeks without needing to recharge. The included USB cable makes it simple to recharge too- simply plug into any chargeable USB port or plug adapter to reinvigorate your Kindle’s battery.

A vast selection
There are over 3 million books, newspapers and magazines available for you to download and enjoy from the Kindle store – so you won’t be short of reading options. Including more than a million free books; choose from classics like Pride & Prejudice and Treasure Island or for not much expense you could try Cold War thriller: Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy or comedic fantasy: Rispin Quill, The Dragon Tongue, to name a few.

Paperwhite can download books through your computer and the supplied USB cable, or directly onto your device using Wi-Fi, either at home or through Wi-Fi hotspots. Downloads are quick and easy, with books available to read in as little as 60 seconds.

You can store up to 4,000 books on a Kindle Paperwhite, so you can move from one book to the next with ease. It’ll also help substantially reduce luggage weight for keen holiday readers!

Kindle PageFlip lets you skim through books, page by page, scan by chapter or skip to the end without losing your place.
Kindle makes it easy to look things up, thanks to the new Smart Lookup feature. Smart Lookup integrates a full dictionary with X-Ray and Wikipedia, giving you more information, just a tap away. Words looked up on Kindle Paperwhite are automatically added to Vocabulary Builder, where you can quiz yourself with flashcards.
Kindle makes it easy to bookmark and annotate text, as well as clip and highlight passages. And because these markings are digital, they can easily be deleted or exported to a computer. You can even post them directly to Twitter or Facebook without leaving the page.
