Amazon's all-new, waterproof Kindle Paperwhite

Amazon's all-new, waterproof Kindle Paperwhite

Now, the newest Paperwhite appears to be a mix of the old model and the now-defunct Kindle Voyage (the latter disappeared from Amazon's site about a month ago).

The new model boasts twice the storage space of previous Kindles, and the screen is not only the highest resolution offered by Amazon (300ppi), but also flush with the front of the reader's bezel for a higher-quality finish.

According to Amazon the Paperwhite is the best-selling and highest-rated Kindle on the market, which is why pre-orders for the All New Kindle Paperwhite are opening up today. Well Amazon claims to have designed the new Paperwhite "from the bottom up", which means we have a sightly different design. The new design is 8.18mm thick and weighs 182g.

Amazon says the waterproofing means you can now enjoy your Kindle Paperwhite in the bath or on the beach, and the soft, grippable material found on the rear means that it should not slip from your grasp.

Built-in Bluetooth : Listen to Audible content on Bluetooth devices such as speakers or headphones. Now we have smartphones that are the size of tablets, and also tablets that are the size of computer screens, which may make an e-reader feel as redundant as a handheld video camera or a Walkman.

Amazon also announced some software changes that will be available on the new Paperwhite.

The new Paperwhite costs just over half as much as the Oasis, at £120, offering the same protection for up to 2m depth for up to 30 minutes. You know, in case you like reading on something that has a battery that lasts longer than Luke Skywalker's Jedi training.

If you've wanted to take your Paperwhite into the hot tub, now you can.

For those of us who still prefer reading on books on a device that has a glare-free display, Amazon has updated its Kindle Paperwhite ebook reader. Perhaps most impressively, Amazon lists the new model as "waterproof", not "water-resistant", so you can use it on the beach, next to the pool, or even in the pool without having to worry about splashes or dunks.

The "invert colours" setting featured in the Kindle Oasis is also now available in Amazon's new version of the Paperwhite. Further, it's now possible to save multiple reading settings, including font, boldness level, display orientation and more. The 32GB version is priced at $159.99, while the 32 GB with free cellular connectivity is $249.99.
