Amazon Kindle Paperwhite With Wi-Fi, Model B00AWWE08E
The Best Device For Reading, Period.
- 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
Paperwhite guides light toward the surface of the display with its next-gen front light- unlike back-lit tablets that shine in your eyes- so you can read comfortably without eyestrain. Adjust your screen's brightness for great reading in any light.
- Charge Monthly, Not Daily
Kindle Paperwhite won't leave you thethered to an outlet. A single charge can last up to eight weeks (based on half hour of reading per day with wireless off and the light setting at ten), unlike tablets that need to be charged each night.
- Read Comfortable With One Hand
Thinner than a pencil, lighter than a paperback- and over 30% lighter than iPad mini. Comfortably hold Kindle Paperwhite in one hand for long reading sessions.
- No Distractions
Kindle Paperweight is purposely designed as a dedicated e-reader. Indulge your love of reading without interruptions like email alerts.
Reads Like A Book...

Enjoy even better contrast on the latest Kindle Paperwhite. Whites are whiter and blacks are blacker, creating sharp, clear text.
