Kindle Paperwhite

Last week I got a late christmas gift.

Kindle Paperwhite

The brand new Kindle Paperwhite.

It doesn’t have a color display. But that is a good thing, because that means that the battery lifetime is epic! 8 weeks! And because it doesn’t have a glamor display you can read on it comfortable on sunny days outdoors.

The iPad is on sunny days outdoors not usable. Because of the shiny glamor display turns into mirror 🙂 This is not the case with a Kindle device. And it has some cool features. If you read a book, you can see a list of all people appearing in the book. That is useful.

The device is even smaller than the iPad mini. It fits easily into your jacket pocket.

One new feature at this device is the background light. The old kindle didn’t had background light and in dark rooms it was very hard to read them. This generation has a build in background light you can turn on and off.

And beside books, there are a couple magazines and newspapers available, too. For example “New York Times” or “Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung”.

I like it pretty much, because:

  1. It’s small & light 
  2. 8 weeks battery life time
  3. No shiny glamor display. It’s very good readable outdoors on sunny days
  4. No disturbing apps (Email, Messanger and so on).
  5. Background light
  6. Multitouch

And it is not very expensive. $119 is a fair price.
