Kindle releases Paperwhite 3G

Apr 1, 2013

The new Kindle Paperwhite 3G is set to revolutionise the future of e-readers, featuring a new matte white screen which reflects light evenly to ensure easy reading, and 62% more pixels for unsurpassed resolution.

The download time via 3G wireless has been reduced dramatically, allowing books to be ready to read in less than 60 seconds.

“This new Kindle Paperwhite 3G is the most incredible piece of technology. Kindle just keep getting better at their game,” says Steve Nossel, MD of Circuit City, sole retail distributors of Kindle products in South Africa.

The improvements to Kindle while designing the Paperwhite have been largely focused on 3G technologies, with the goal being a decrease in download time and a main focus on global connectivity – allowing free 3G wireless connection to millions of books at any time, anywhere.

This brilliant, high resolution black and white touch screen Kindle is the perfect device for those who love technology coupled with convenience and efficiency.

Kindle makes available for download exclusive titles that cannot be found anywhere else written by best-selling authors.

The new “time to read” feature calculates reading speed and lets users know when they should be finishing that specific chapter. The improved battery life, of up to eight weeks with the light feature on, is highly beneficial for users who are travelling and who do not have access to a charging point.

The Kindle Paperwhite 3G allows users to read in bright light with no glare. The matte white screen has been designed to look like ordinary paper, which allows users to read in any kind of lighting, whether indoors or outdoors, at night or during the day.

Unlike backlit tablets, the Kindle Paperwhite 3G guides light towards the surface of the screen from above, so that the light never shines in users’ eyes and makes reading uncomfortable because it is too bright.

Kindle Paperwhite 3G supports children’s books with Kindle Text Pop-up and comic books with Kindle View. It also features a parental guidance control panel.

Kindle Paperwhite is available at numerous retail outlets.
