Amazon refreshes Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite e-readers

Amazon today launched refreshed editions of its Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite e-readers, bringing in new features and design for the same price.

You can buy the new Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite e-readers for £59.99 and £109.99 and get to try some great new features.

Amazon Kindle Oasis is a reimagined e-reader

The Kindle is now thinner and lighter than its predecessor and with twice the storage, will let you save more content. If you are looking for ease of usage, the new Kindle comes with a more rounded design for better one-handed usage and the display prevents glare and doesn't reflect light sources, thereby saving your eyes from the strain which comes from hours of reading.

The new Kindle will let you export notes and highlights from any book to your e-mail which you will be able to refer to anytime you so desire. This feature will be available as part for a free software update which Amazon will roll out in a few weeks. The new Kindle will also come with Bluetooth Audio support, letting you pair your Kindle with Bluetooth headphones or speakers. This feature will be very helpful for visually-impaired rea ders who wish to access the vast catalogue of books available at the Kindle Store.

Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited launches in UK with unlimited book rentals for £7.99 a month

You will also be able to experience a personalized home screen in the new Kindle. It comes with an updated interface and navigation which will make it easier for you to find new books, manage Wish Lists and view recommendations from friends. The pricier Kindle Paperwhite is now available in White, still costs £109.99 and comes with a 300 ppi display, is as lightweight as before and can run for weeks on a single charge. You can either pre-order you favourite Kindle or buy one from retailers including Argos, Currys PC World, John Lewis and Tesco.

For regular Kindle users and new ones as well, Amazon runs its Kindle Unlimited services, offering unlimited content at just £7.99 a month. Subscribers can not only access such content on Kindle readers but also in free Kindle apps on PC, Mac, iOS, Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry. New users will be able to access the service for free for the first 30 days.
