No Glare in Bright Sunlight

Unlike reflective tablet and smartphone screens, the latest Kindle Paperwhite 3G reads like paper — no annoying glare, even in bright sunlight.

Won't Tire Your Eyes in the Dark

Paperwhite guides light toward the surface of the display with its next-gen front light — unlike back-lit tablets that shine in your eyes — so you can read comfortably with less eyestrain. Adjust your screen's brightness for great reading in any light.

Charge Monthly, Not Daily

Kindle Paperwhite 3G won't leave you tethered to an outlet. A single charge can last up to eight weeks (based on a half hour of reading per day with wireless off and the light setting at ten), unlike tablets that need to be charged each night.

Read Comfortably with One Hand

Thinner than a pencil, lighter than a paperback — and over 30% lighter than iPad mini. Comfortably hold Kindle Paperwhite 3G in one hand for long reading sessions.

No Distractions

Kindle Paperwhite 3G is purposely designed as a dedicated e-reader. Indulge your love of reading without interruptions like email alerts.

Whiter Screen, Darker Text

IMPROVED — Enjoy even better contrast on the latest Kindle Paperwhite 3G. Whites are whiter and blacks are blacker, creating sharp, clear text. The high-resolution display allows for elegant typeface options including Baskerville and Palatino, and all fonts on Kindle Paperwhite 3G have been hand-tuned at the pixel level for maximum readability and comfort.

Fast, Easy Page Turns

IMPROVED — The new Kindle Paperwhite 3G's processor is 25% faster. Books open and pages turn faster for a seamless experience. Kindle Paperwhite 3G also uses the latest in capacitive touch technology, more accurately responding to the smallest touches.

3.0 out of 5 stars Still no e-book support for Canadian libraries! Nov. 12 2013
By Craig Wilson TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Hey Amazon! When are you going to offer access to Canadian library e-books? It's been several years of waiting now. In fact I got tired of waiting and bought two Kobo e-readers for my kids; they're great.

I've owned my Kindle for a couple of years and really like it. It's a space saver, it's fantastically legible, offers fingertip access to a dictionary, the ability to buy and receive books in seconds, etc. It's great!

However, I just bought two Kobo e-readers for my kids because Kindle still does not support EPUB books from Canadian libraries and Kobo does. I got tired of waiting and thought you, and others, should know.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cannot be used for Canadian Library books Oct. 20 2013
By Grant Cowan TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
Although I am happy with the operation of the Kindle Paperwhite, I had not realized that it cannot be used to borrow ebooks from Canadian public libraries. Had I known this in advance, I might well have chosen a Kobo instead, or one of the other e-readers which are compatible with libraries in Canada.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than I expected Oct. 25 2013
By Sophia Burns TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
A few years ago, I got the Kindle Keyboard. I absolutely loved the device, it was perfect for reading out in the bright sun, as well as in airports etc. I loved not having to drag a thick book with me, only to find out halfway that I didn't feel like reading that at all. With the Kindle, I could take hundreds of books in my purse, and it weighed less than one paperback! My world was perfect... I would never need another device. Or so I thought.

When the new Paperwhite was announced, I finally broke down, lured by the prospect of the backlight. What a surprise! Now I can read it in any environment, sunlight, lamplight or a dimly lit room. I can even read it in bed at night, without disturbing my family. With the brightness adjustment, you can set it to any ambient preference, so it will never be too bright or too dim.

Not only that, but the font is so crystal clear, it truly is like reading a high quality book. One of my gripes with the Kindle Keyboard was the speed... to download about 10 books took as many minutes and a lot of clicking and browsing. This new Paperwhite does the same task in a mere 10 seconds, you just select the items you wish to download one by one and the download takes place entirely in the background. Another new feature I love is the way you can quickly scan through the book without losing your position. When reading a detective for example, I find myself flipping back quite a bit to remind myself who was who again, or what happened when... with the old Kindles that was virtually impossible. Now you just swipe up and you can scan through the pages, just like a paperback where you put your thumb between the pages and flip through the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Why no answer to the Canadian e-library question Dec 26 2013
By Carol TOP 100 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
I gifted myself with the newest Kindle Paperwhite for Christmas and am really excited to use it. Unfortunately, I have to finish 'Winter of the Worlds' in paperback before I can get reading on the Kindle but I have already loaded a good selection of books and experimented with the features.
But all my friends and family want to know about the issue of not being able to access books from Canadian libraries. I cannot seem to find the answer anywhere as to why Kindle PaperWhite works this way. It is a big issue with a lot of people and I would like to see Amazon address the question.
Thanks

For those of you who are having trouble with reading epub books, the format used by the Ontario Digital Library system, you can convert the Kindle format quite easily using the free Calibre Software. Once the epub is loaded into Calibre, convert it to Mobi format and you can read it without problems.

3.0 out of 5 stars Canadian Ebooks options Nov. 29 2013
By legalreader TOP 1000 REVIEWER
This Kindle is amazing! It's really too bad that I cannot use it. It does not allow me to access Canadian library books or the ebrary. It is not compatible with Adobe Digital Editions. It's strange that the only way to access books is through Amazon.ca and torrent sites. As I want to use only legitimate websites and respect copyright, I am extremely frustrated by this limitation. Furthermore, PDFs are very small and hard to navigate. On the positive side, the lighting is great and the battery lasts forever.

3.0 out of 5 stars No Canadian Support Nov. 24 2013
By OM4E
Great product, I enjoy it completely. However it is incomplete in Canada. Active Content, and library are not available. The American site says you access the same content "Active Content" but I can't even find an option for it other then Android Applications.

Feeling that your product isn't being 100% supported is features on the product that are unavailable and is also a failing on the company for lying to the customer.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read(er) Oct. 20 2013
By Pramod
Verified Purchase
I already own a Kindle Keyboard which is working perfectly well after three years. I still use it regularly. I also have an iPad 4 and an iPod 5 with the Kindle app installed which I sometimes use to read at night in semi darkness at the risk of getting eyestrain.

I passed on the opportunity to own a Kindle Paperwhite last year due to negative reviews pertaining to the front lighting. However, nearly all the professional and customer reviews I read about the new PW were positive about the evenness of the front light, so I decided to order one.

I have had all-new Kindle Paperwhite (PW2) for a few days now and so far I am very impressed with it. The lighting in spot-on and the screen is super-responsive to the touch. There is no eye strain at all, but in any case it is better to look at a faraway object every hour or so and take a little break as well. It is very easy to hold, but I suggest buying Amazon's own leather cover. I bought the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Leather Cover, Saddle Tan which fits it perfectly well. Coming from the KK world, I thought that physical buttons would be essential for turning pages, but the touchscreen works really well in this regard. My only advice is not to use the PW2 if you have food in the hand that you use for page turning. Page turns are really fast, though not silky smooth like on LED screen tablets. As usual, buying books on the Amazon Kindle Store is a breeze. You can store 1,000 books locally on the device, but if you really have to store more, the Amazon cloud is totally free.

Perhaps the only thing I miss on the PW2 the Audible integration and Text To Speech (TTS), both of which the KK featured.
