Our all-new Kindle includes an updated design, the latest electronic ink technology for better contrast, and comes in black or white for just $139. It is available for pre-order today from Amazon and other retailers.
Like all Kindle devices, our all-new reader provides a sanctuary reading experience with no distractions and includes a glare-free display with laser-quality text that’s easy to read. The new adjustable front light makes it even more comfortable to read in a variety of places, while still delivering weeks of battery life. The all-new Kindle also includes updated electronic ink technology for better contrast and now uses capacitive touch, so Aussies don’t have to worry about accidental swipes on the six-inch, 167 ppi display.
The refreshed design delivers all these great features while keeping the device thin and light, so it’s easy to hold in one hand for long reading sessions. And our all-new Kindle comes with features Australians love, including storage to hold thousands of books so you can take your library with you, a battery life that lasts weeks not hours, and a durable design that makes it easy to bring with you on the go.
The all-new Kindle helps you go beyond your book with our newest reading features. Now, when you finish a book, it will automatically be marked as read in your library and synced across your reading devices including Kindle and the free Kindle apps for iOS and Android. With just a few taps, you can filter to see which books you’ve read and which you haven’t, so organising your library has never been easier.
This new feature will be delivered as a free, over-the-air update to the all-new Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite Gen 6 to current (released in 2013), and newer devices in the coming months.
