Summary of Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 3G
The Kindle Paperwhite features a 6-inch Paperwhite display packing-in 212 pixels per inch and displaying 16 level grey scale. The Paperwhite display is essentially a front-lit display that guides light underneath an anti-glare layer and down toward the display, away from the reader's eyes, allowing readers to read with less eye fatigue and strain. Amazon claims that the e-reader offers 25 percent higher contrast for sharp, dark text and packs in 62 percent more pixels for higher resolution. The screen's brightness can be adjusted for reading in different light conditions. The Kindle Paperwhite sports a 2-point multi-touch display eliminating the need for physical buttons. It comes with 2GB of internal storage space out of which 1.25GB is available to the user, capable of holding around 1100 books. It also offers free cloud storage for all content (books and magazines) purchased from Amazon. The e-reader is light weight at 213 grams and promises a battery life of 8 weeks with the front-light on when Wi-Fi/ 3G connections are turned off. The Paperwhite's built-in Wi-Fi allows users to purchase and download books from the Kindle store directly through the e-reader. Amazon will also offer free 3G access with the 3G plus Wi-Fi version of Kindle Paperwhite. This essentially means that Amazon pays for the 3G connection on Kindle Paperwhite Wi-Fi + 3G, so customers pay no fees for data.
