Every so often Amazon offers an installment plan for their e-readers and tablets. For a low upfront fee, you can get one shipped out and play around for it for a few weeks. If you don’t like it, you can return it within 30 days for a full refund or keep it and pay a low monthly fee on your credit card. Today, Amazon has brought back the program for the second generation Kindle Paperwhite and the Kindle Voyage.
The second generation Paperwhite features a six inch e-Ink display screen with a resolution of 1024×768. Overall the touchscreen is more responsive and text has higher contrast to make text more legible than the first generation model . Underneath the hood is a 1 GHZ processor and 256 MB of RAM. Late last year, Amazon increased the amount of memory this unit has from 2GB to 4GB, this is useful because there is no expandable memory.
The Kindle Voyage features a six inch e-ink Carta display with a resolution of 1430 x 1080. It has 300 PPI, which is the highest we have ever seen. The Voyage likely is the best e-reader ever made and quite expensive, retailing at $199.
In order to take advantage of this promotion you have to live in the United States and simply make your first payment at checkout. Then pay the remaining balance in three equal installments every 90 days. The first payment is 25% of the purchase price.
