The Kindle Paperwhite is ready for the bath
Sometimes you just want to read a book. Or maybe all the books. That's the promise of the Kindle line. Access to thousands of books in a form factor that's mobile and won't distract you with a litany of notifications about the world being on fire or that someone liked your photo of last night's poke.
The updated Paperwhite from Amazon starting at $129 does all that while its features move closer to the more expensive and robust Kindle Oasis.
The new Paperwhite (available for order now and shipping on November 7th) is waterproof, has a higher resolution screen (300ppi) and supports Audible audiobooks via Bluetooth headphones. So you can now listen to your audiobooks, then when you have time to actually read, Amazon's Whispersync will drop you in the book right where the audiobook left off on the same device.
The Paperwhite's six-inch display is now flush with the rest of the front of the device and the company has expanded brightness range up to 10-percent brighter at the top end for those extra sunny days. The new design is 8.18mm thick and weighs 182g.
