We reported yesterday on a rumor that suggested Amazon were soon to release a new Kindle Paperwhite, and for the most part, this is true. The online retailer announced to the world details on its latest e-reader, which they describe as the Kindle Voyage with a next-Gen Paperwhite display.
Amazon is still selling the current generation Paperwhite, so this latest model is considered to be more of a high-end e-reader, which is also what we assumed yesterday. The question is, is there a market for such an item?
Kindle Voyage price — Before we look at the specs of this new e-reader, we thought that you would rather know its cost first? The starting price is $199 with offers, and without $219. The Wi-Fi and 3G model is to cost $269, so not cheap.
Kindle Voyage release date — If you live in the US, then you will be able to get your hands on this new Kindle on October 21st, and November 4th in the UK. This is good news because instead of waiting months in the UK, people looking to get hold of the next generation Kindle e-reader only have to wait a couple of weeks.
Kindle Voyage specs — The biggest feature has to be its high-resolution 300 ppi display, which makes it look even more like a book. PagePress means that you can now turn a page without moving a finger, all you need to do is apply pressure on the bezel, which is pretty much where your fingers would rest while holding the devcie.
There is a new adaptive front light, which offers the perfect brightness during day or night, so no need to adjust it manually anymore.
