All-New Kindle E-reader – White, 6″ Glare-Free Touchscreen Display, Wi-Fi – Includes Special Offers

A booklover’s new best friend

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 high contrast touchscreen display eliminates glare in any setting—even direct sunlight.

No eye strain, reads like real paper

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 text and image quality.

Battery lasts weeks, not hours

Kindle doesn’t need 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 have shown that evening exposure to blue light from devices with backlit screens like 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 sleep.

Thousands of books, no distractions

Kindle is designed as a dedicated e-reader. Indulge your love of reading without interruptions like email alerts and push notifications.

Kindle

Read comfortably with one hand

Lighter than a paperback, comfortably hold Kindle in one hand for those times when you can’t put the book down.

Lose yourself in a book

By design, Kindle is purpose-built for reading and creates a sanctuary so you can lose yourself in a book. Unlike tablets and phones, Kindle doesn’t distract you with social media, emails, and text messages.

Take and share notes

Add margin notes that you can edit, delete, or even export from your device to your computer. Share highlighted sections and meaningful quotes on Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads, and see passages frequently highlighted by other Kindle readers.

Look it up instantly without leaving your page

Smart Lookup integrates entries from The New Oxford American Dictionary with information from X-Ray and Wikipedia, so you can access definitions, characters, settings, and more without losing your place.

Read more challenging books

Word Wise makes it easier to enjoy and quickly understand more challenging books. Short and simple definitions automatically appear above difficult words, so you can keep reading with fewer interruptions. Tap on a word to bring up a simple card with definitions, synonyms, and more. Available on many popular English language titles.

Build your vocabulary

Words looked up in the dictionary are automatically added to Vocabulary Builder to expand your knowledge and reinforce retention. Swipe through your vocabulary words, quiz yourself with flashcards, and instantly see those words in context.

Share your library

With Family Library, you and your family can access and easily share not only your own Kindle books, but also books from the linked Amazon account of a spouse or partner.

Lowest book prices, massive selection

Over a million titles are priced at $2.99 or less. Over 2 million titles are $9.99 or less.

    Sometimes Simpler is Better – the Least Expensive Kindle is a Great E-Reader (and see video for demo of new Bluetooth VoiceView) Just two months following Amazon’s introduction of their premium-priced (and somewhat controversial) , Amazon has brought out their 8th-Generation Kindle. Imagine, the Kindle was first released on November 19, 2007, for $399!This is the least expensive model in the current Kindle lineup and bookends the Oasis at about a third of the price, with the Paperwhite and Voyage in between. In the eight and a half years that have now gone by since the first Kindle, Amazon continues to make incremental improvements, and this new refinement of the Kindle has a couple of significant differences that make the product and experience better, for some users at least.I ordered this model because I wanted to see how much different this Kindle is from my other models (I have one each of the others mentioned above). Does it really make that much difference to have a Kindle without the built-in lighting?IN BRIEF – WHY PURCHASE THIS PARTICULAR KINDLE MODEL?– It’s the least expensive Kindle (and the price is unchanged from the 7th generation version).– As an e-reader it does everything that the more expensive Kindle models do – it runs the same e-reader software, it has the same processor as the more expensive Paperwhite and Voyage models, and it synchronizes with your Kindle book library and downloads books via wi-fi.– It has exactly as much storage for books as any other current Kindle model, 4 GB, enough for ‘thousands’ of books.– It will operate for almost as long on a battery charge as any of the Kindle models (see more details below)– Plus, if you want to have the new VoiceView capability (see explanation later) then this Kindle can do that too (and some of the others cannot, at least at this point in time).WHAT DOESN’T IT DO THAT THE MORE EXPENSIVE MODELS DO?– It does not have a lighted screen. It works great and is totally readable under all normal lighting conditions.– The screen resolution is a bit less sharp – the specifications are 167 ppi and 16-level grayscale (see more detailed discussion below).– It does not have 3G capability for downloading books away from a wi-fi network.– It does not have page turn buttons, the controls are only touchscreen.– Other Kindle’s have different style covers available from Amazon (in particular the ‘origami’ cover for the Voyage, for those who like that particular cover style).HOW IS THIS KINDLE DIFFERENT FROM THE PREVIOUS MODEL?The previous Kindle can still be viewed on Amazon here: This new version is priced the same as the previous one (and note that they are sometimes discounted by twenty dollars or more). There are only a couple of changes, however they are significant:– It’s a bit smaller and thinner (6.3″ x 4.5″ x 0.36″ compared to 6.7″ x 4.7″ x 0.40″), and it’s significantly lighter (5.7 oz vs 6.7 oz, which may seem like not much difference at just 1 oz but it’s actually quite noticeable). This is now the second-lightest Kindle. Only the Oasis without cover is lighter, and the Oasis is a different concept with most of the battery in the cover rather than in the device itself.– It has BLUETOOTH!! For the first time, a Kindle includes Bluetooth capability, which doesn’t mean that it can play your audio books but does mean that the Kindle VoiceView capability can be used (see explanation later).– after several years when Kindle’s were only offered in black, Amazon has re-introduced the option of a Kindle in WHITE!! (OK, it may not sound like a big deal, but for some Kindle fans who fondly recall the first Kindle’s that were ONLY available in white, this is a welcome change).AMAZON HAS FOUR DIFFERENT KINDLE MODELS? WHICH ONE SHOULD I PURCHASE?Well, I may be able to help with that, because as it happens I have each of the current models and can give at least my own perspective on what the pros and cons are of each:– Lighted Kindles: Three of the four current models have self-illumination:—- : least expensive of the lighted Kindles, has the same display resolution as the Voyage or Oasis, touch screen control only, the best value for lighted Kindles and I believe this is Amazon’s best selling Kindle model.—- : Adds page turn buttons to the sides of the display as well as touch screen, the lighting technology is improved, the case design is a…
