Unsurpassed high resolution – reads like real paper
Kindle Paperwhite has an improved high-resolution 300 ppi display for crisp, print-quality text.
Next-generation reading experience
Kindle Paperwhite introduces our most readable font, Bookerly. Designed from the ground up, Bookerly offers a lighter, more graceful look, much closer to traditional print than to computer displays for enhanced readability, particularly for long-form reading. With improved character spacing and the addition of hyphenation, justification, kerning, ligatures and drop-cap support, Kindle’s best-in-class typography allows you to read more easily and quickly with fewer page turns.
No glare in bright sunlight
Unlike reflective tablet and smartphone screens, the latest Kindle Paperwhite reads like paper – no annoying glare, even in bright sunlight.
Won’t tire your eyes in the dark
Kindle Paperwhite guides light towards the surface of the display with its built-in front light – so you can read comfortably without straining your eyes. Adjust your screen’s brightness for great reading in any light.
Charge monthly, not daily
Kindle Paperwhite won’t leave you tethered to a socket. A single charge can last up to six weeks (based on half an hour of reading per day with wireless off and the light setting at ten).
Read comfortably with one hand
Thinner than a pencil, lighter than a paperback. Hold Kindle Paperwhite comfortably in one hand for long reading sessions.
Kindle Paperwhite is purposely designed as a dedicated E-reader. Indulge your love of reading without interruptions such as e-mail alerts or push notifications.
Sharp, dark text
Enjoy text that reads like the printed page. All fonts have been hand-tuned at the pixel level for maximum readability and comfort.
Skim through without losing your place
With Page Flip, you can skim page-by-page, scan by chapter, or skip to the end for a sneak peek without losing your place.
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 and Twitter, and see passages frequently highlighted by other Kindle readers.
Read comfortably in one hand
