Amazon Upgrades Kindle Paperwhite


Recommended Posts

Amazon has announced an updated version of the Kindle Paperwhite e-reader, maintaining a $119 price tag while introducing multiple improvements and new features. The pixel density of the screen has been increased from 212 pixels per inch (ppi) to 300 ppi, greatly improving readability for small text. A new font known as Bookerly is included and Amazon says it is "even more readable" even though "its more aggressive kerning and ligatures may take a bit of getting used to." The layout engine has also been updated with the addition of automatic hyphenation and improved handling of drop caps and embedded charts. The new Paperwhite is available for purchase now and begins shipping June 30.
