Amazon has just released their first entry level Kindle since 2014 with a major refresh. The device has Bluetooth, double the RAM and more memory to store your e-books. There are also two different color options, black and white.
The 2016 Kindle has already been experiencing a some controversy. The promotional images that Amazon was circulating when they first announced the device are very different from the final product that has been reaching reviewers hands. I have heard many reports that the e-reader screen is much darker in real life, but the promotional images show it as being fairly white. This has resulted in mixed reviews on the Kindle Product Page, with more 1 star ratings than 5 stars.
In order for users to immediately get the most out of their new Kindle e-Reader, Calibre has just updated their e-book management app today with full support. This will allow you to upload e-books, swap the cover art and send content directly to your device.
By the end of the week Good e-Reader will be posting a very comprehensive review of the new Kindle. Most of the reviews I have read so far have been very woeful.
