“Of all the Kindles, the Paperwhite is the best gift for the avid reader. It’s not as expensive or fully featured as the Voyage or the Oasis, but its built-in adjustable light comes as a welcome improvement to the base Kindle or earlier Kindles that your giftee may have had in the past.”
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite E-reader is an e-reader that features a micro-etched screen that is designed to prevent glare and gives a papery touch feeling.
The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite E-reader has a 6-inch glass screen with a superior hi-res display of 300 ppi and twice as many pixels as the previous generation. The anti-glare display makes it easier for the Kindle Paperwhite E-reader to read like a paper. The Kindle Paperwhite E-reader has a long battery back-up by which a single complete charge can help the device to retain charge up to six weeks.
The Paperwhite E-reader directs light towards the display’s surface with its in-built front light that enables readers to read comfortably minus the eyestrain. You just need to adjust the brightness of the screen to read in any light. Weighing just 161 grams, the Kindle Paperwhite E-reader is lighter than most paperbacks and enables you to hold it in one hand for an extended period of time.
The reading device also enables you to choose from eight text sizes to help readers read for a longer duration of time and prevent their eyes from getting tired. The device also comes with translation assistance powered by Bing Translator that helps readers to get the appropriate translation for a word or a section into other languages including Japanese, Spanish, among others.
The reading device has a Smart Lookup feature that assimilates entries from Wikipedia, X-Ray, and The New Oxford American Dictionary, to help readers in getting the meaning, contexts, characters, and many other things at their own pace.
