Amazon Kindle Paperwhite

The article will provide a reader with information on Amazon Kindle Paperwhite. The most important change with the Paperwhite is the screen, but not just because of that built-in light – it’s also had a resolution boost. While all of the old Kindle models used an 6in E Ink Pearl screen with an 800×600 resolution, the Kindle Paperwhite has a brand-new 6in E Ink screen with a resolution of 1,024×768 – a 62 per cent increase in pixels and a pixel density of 221ppi.

With a 1,024×768 resolution screen and backlight, the Paperwhite has sharper, clearer text than on previous Kindles Text looks a lot sharper on the Paperwhite’s screen than it did on the old Kindle Touch. A user can reduce the font size down to its smallest and still clearly be able to read it. In this regard, the Paperwhite comes close to accurately rendering the small font size and density typically used for paperback books.  It’s the backlight that’s going to garner the most attention and with good reason, too. It uses four LEDs at the top to bathe the entire screen in gentle light. Aside from a couple of slightly dimmer patches at the bottom that a User doesn’t notice when he is reading, the screen is very evenly lit.

At first glance it may seem as though the best use for this light is for when a User is in a dark room, as a direct replacement for the old Amazon Kindle Lighted Cover, which had a pop-out light. However, the Paperwhite’s light source is something that a User should use all of the time, as it makes the screen look whiter and the helps boost contrast. In this respect, the Paperwhite is a close to reading a ‘real’ book as a User can get.  When a User is somewhere in the dark, the screen works brilliantly, letting a User read easily without another source of illumination. Having the light built in has the secondary advantage that a User does’t get as much light leakage as from the Lighted Cover, so a User can happily read next to a partner without bothering them.

A User can also have complete control over the backlight, with an on-screen slider letting a User choose its brightness. Amazon recommends higher brightness in brightly-lit rooms, so that a User can maintain the contrast, with lower brightness for dimly-lit rooms. The Paperwhite is User friendly as it is easy to read.
Amazon uses low-power LEDs, ensuring that battery life won’t be reduced too much, although it varies depending on the brightness of the lamp. Amazon quotes battery life at eight weeks, based on half an hour of reading per day with wireless turned off and the light at setting 10. This equates to around 28 hours of continuous reading before a User has to charge the device again.
The Paperwhite has largely the same interface as the Kindle Touch, with the choice of book thumbnails or a simple text list on the home screen. When a User is in a book, he can tap the top of the screen to bring up the menu, which lets a User adjust the font size and type, search the book and highlight passages.  So far, so similar to the Kindle Touch; however, a User has much more control over the text with the Paperwhite. With the old Kindle Touch a User could select the font size and choose between three font styles; with the Kindle Paperwhite you still have font size control, but you can also choose from seven fonts – Baskerville, Caecilia, Caecilia Condensed, Publisher Font, Futura, Hevetica and Palatino – as well as having the choice of Line spacing and Margin sizes.
