Amazon has started the pre-booking process of the new Kindle Paperwhite for Rs 10,999.
It comes with a 6 inch display with 212 ppi pixel density. The device is 9.1 mm thick and weighs 206 grams. It has 2 GB storage (1.25 GB available for users).
“The new Kindle Paperwhite’s processor is 25 per cent faster. Books open and pages turn faster for a seamless experience. Kindle Paperwhite also uses the latest in capacitive touch technology, responding more accurately to the slightest touches,â€ claimed Amazon.
The latest Kindle Paperwhite also said to have better contrast levels. It also brings a new Page Flip feature, which allows e-book readers to skim through page by page, scan by chapter or skip to the end for a sneak peek. The new Kindle Paperwhite introduces a Smart Lookup feature that comes integrated with a full dictionary with X-Ray and Wikipedia so you can access definitions, characters, settings and more without leaving your page or losing your place.
Unlike tablets which come with back-lit display, the new Kindle Paperwhite guides light towards the surface of the display with its next generation front light so you can read comfortably without straining your eyes. The e-book reader also comes with WiFi connectivity.
Amazon is currently also selling Kindle e-reader for Rs 5,999, Kindle Paperwhite 3G for Rs 13,999, Kindle Fire HD 8.9 for Rs 17,999, and Kindle Fire HD for Rs 11,999.
