Thin and light for one-handed reading

New—The all-new Kindle is 11% thinner and 16% lighter than the previous generation Kindle, making it easy and comfortable to hold in one hand.

No glare in bright sunlight

Unlike reflective tablet and smartphone screens, the high contrast touchscreen display eliminates glare in any setting—even direct sunlight.

No eye strain, reads like real paper

Kindle uses actual ink particles and proprietary, hand-built fonts to create crisp text similar to what you see in a physical book. The blacks and whites on the screen are uniform, improving text and image quality.

Battery lasts weeks, not hours

Kindle doesn’t need power to maintain a page of text, allowing you to read for weeks on a single charge.

Unlike tablets, no blue light to disturb your sleep

Recent studies have shown that evening exposure to blue light from backlit screens like tablets and smartphones can suppress the body’s production of melatonin, a naturally occurring hormone that helps the body fall asleep. Because the Kindle display emits no light, you can read anytime without losing sleep.

Thousands of books, no distractions

Kindle is designed as a dedicated e-reader. Indulge your love of reading without interruptions like email alerts and push notifications.

Every Kindle E-reader...
Reads like a book...

Flip through books while saving your place

Page Flip makes it easy to find pictures, charts, maps and even your notes and highlights from different parts of a book. While you swipe to other pages or zoom out to see page thumbnails, Page Flip automatically saves the page you’re reading, pinning it to the side of your screen so you’ll never lose your place.

Sharp, dark text

Enjoy text that reads like the printed page. Our fonts, such as Bookerly, have been hand-tuned at the pixel level for maximum readability.

Export and share notes

It’s now easy to export notes and highlights from a book to your e-mail, so you can always have them on-hand for reference. Receive your notes both as an easily printable PDF that’s ready to bring to your book club, and as a simple file you can open in your favorite spreadsheet app.

Read comfortably with one hand

Lighter than a paperback, comfortably hold Kindle in one hand for those times when you can’t put the book down.

Lose yourself in a book

By design, Kindle is purpose-built for reading and creates a sanctuary so you can lose yourself in a book. Unlike tablets and phones, Kindle doesn’t distract you with social media, emails, and text messages.

Which E-Ink Kindle

E-Ink Kindles Comparison

Which-E-ink-Kindle-Comparison

* Senses the light in your environment and changes the setting to the ideal brightness (as compared to choosing brightness manually in the Kindle Paperwhite)
** PagePress allows you to turn the page without lifting a finger. Simply apply pressure on the bezel to turn the page, a silent haptic response for consistent and immediate feedback will be provided. (as opposed to tapping/swiping on touchscreen to flip)

So, which one should I get?

Here, it really depends on your reading habit and we will distil it down to the main factors of consideration.

Do you read in the dark?

If yes, get the Paperwhite or Voyage as it has a built-in light that allows you to read in the dark.

If not, the Kindle 7/Basic will suffice.

Do you need a super HD screen?

The main difference between the Paperwhite and Voyage is that the Voyage has a super high resolution screen (300 vs 212 ppi).

This makes greyscale, images, and especially comics appear extremely clear on the Voyage. Therefore, get the Voyage if you intend to read comics or images.

If you are mostly doing normal reading, the Paperwhite’s screen is more than crisp and clear enough. You don’t really need a super HD screen for reading text.

Ultimately, consider whether it is worth playing another $130 for a higher resolution screen to read text. Our store would recommend the Paperwhite it provides the best compromise between features and price.

E-ink or Fire

How are the E-ink Kindle and Kindle Fire different?

The main difference is that the E-Ink Kindle is a dedicated e-book reader while the Kindle Fire is essentially an Android tablet.

E-ink-or-Fire-Comparison

Which one should I get?

It ultimately depends on what you are using it for.

If you are buying a device just for reading, nothing beats E-ink Kindles (Basic/7, Paperwhite, and Voyage).

If you are getting a device for light reading, with the occasional multimedia usage of apps, movies or other content, then you should get the Kindle Fire – a more versatile tablet.

More detailed explanation of the differences:

Why E-Ink Kindles rock as dedicated e-book readers

i.e. Basic/7, Paperwhite, and Voyage

SCREEN

If you have ever read for an extended period off a monitor/tablet, you will be sure to experience discomfort in your eyes or even headache due to the bright light and glare of the LCD screen.

Rather than LCD screens, E-Ink Kindles use well, E-Ink screens that are designed specifically for comfort and ease on your eyes.

With no screen glare and sharp, dark text, they are meant to replicate the feel of reading a book. In that regard, it has succeeded; reading on the E-ink screen doesn’t feel very different from reading an actual book.

BATTERY LIFE

Thanks largely to the energy sipping E-ink screen technology, you can easily get a battery life of an astonishing 4-8 weeks on the E-Ink Kindles.

This means that you can lose yourself in the world of your book instead of fretting over the next charge, making it a perfect travelling companion.

WEIGHT

Weight is an important factor if you want to read comfortably for prolonged periods.
