Kindle Paperwhite

  |   by TabletPCReview Staff

Amazon has built an e-reader that mimics the full book experience.

The Kindle Paperwhite has a 6-inch, e-ink display, and can be purchased as either Wi-Fi only or with a 3G connection. The e-reader doesn’t have any buttons besides the one for its power, so users have to control it through the touchscreen.

  • Pros

    • Solid hardware and attractive design
    • Excellent screen that allows you to read in all environments, from dim to bright
    • Excellent battery life
  • Cons

    • No MP3 playback or audio support, unlike previous models
    • Only 2GB of memory on this model, though with Amazon cloud storage, that should be more than enough for just about anyone

Quick Take

This backlit version of Amazon's popular eReader is perfect for newcomers, and even some existing Kindle owners may find it to be a worthy upgrade.
