Good e-Reader Gives is a two month program where we giveaway a free e-reader every week. Today we have a brand new 7th generation Amazon Kindle, which is the model that came out in 2014. You can win this e-reader by simply subscribing to our YouTube Channel, Liking the Video and dropping a comment on the video letting us know you have done both of these things.
We receive a copious amount of free e-readers from companies looking for us to give completely unbiased reviews. In the past three weeks we have given away a Kindle Paperwhite, Pocketbook Touch, and a Inkbook Obsidian. The primarily reason we started Good e-Reader Gives is to thank everyone for reading our news website and watching our unboxing and review videos on YouTube.
The Kindle Basic features a six inch touchscreen with a resolution of 800 x 600 at 167 ppi. The touchscreen technology is using Infrared, courtesy of Neonode. The fonts and overall screen clarity have been dramatically increased and in a head to head comparison with the Kindle Paperwhite 2, the Kindle Basic had a whiter background and crisper fonts, which was very surprising.
Underneath the hood is a 1 GHZ Freescale processor and 512 MB of RAM. Amazon has doubled up the amount of internal memory from 2 GB on prior models of the basic model to 4 GB. This in effect gives you the ability to store more books and PDF files on your device, without having to run in there and free up space.
