Kindle Paperwhite, 6

Yay, it is official! Amazon introduced its 6th Generation of Kindle, the All-New Kindle Paperwhite, yesterday. The newly introduced Kindle Paperwhite is already available for pre-order for $119Kindle Paperwhite, 6 and will start shipping on September 30, 2013.

Although there is no apparent change in its appearance, the All-New Kindle Paperwhite has now a better technology with all-new reading features like Kindle Page Flip, Goodreads, Kindle FreeTime, Smart Lookup, Vocabulary Builder and so on.

So without further ado, let’s take a close look at the world’s best-selling ereader and find out the 11 new reasons why you should buy the All-New Kindle Paperwhite:

1. New display technology with higher contrast: The All-New Kindle Paperwhite’s display is the most advanced ereader display ever constructed. Higher contrast means that whites are whiter and blacks are blacker and therefore, the pages are virtually indistinguishable from a physical book.

2. Next generation built-in light: The built-in guides light toward the surface of the display, so you can read very comfortably without eyestrain.

3. New, 25% faster processor: The faster processor allows you to open your ebooks and turn the pages faster for a seamless reading experience.

4. New touch technology: The 19% tighter touch grid makes the All-New Kindle Paperwhite respond even more accurately to the smallest touches that you make.

5. New Kindle Page Flip: It unables you to skim page-by-page, scan by chapter, or skip to the end of your book, without losing your place (see image above).

7. New Kindle FreeTime: The built-in parental controls have been extended to give you a simple and engaging way to encourage your kids to spend more time reading.
