Amazon has introduced an interesting variant of the most affordable Kindle e-reader. It features a longer display as well as a built-in light source, a characteristic earlier reserved for its pricier products. At £69.99, £10 more than the prior model, the brand-new Kindle includes a 6-inch E ink screen with an adaptable front side light source that projects at the sides of the paper for a clearer display screen.
“Customers regularly explain to us just how much they value a forward lighting on Kindle products”, stated Eric Saarnio, the European top of Amazon products. He included that this was the very first Kindle below £100 with an integrated adaptable front side light source.
The brand-new Kindle not only compares to the Kindle Paper white in terms of lighting but also reflects the original 2015 layout with curved plastic material sides of the paper, along with a lip (aimed at the display screen) along the bottom part of the device in which the forward lighting is kept. It is 8.7mm thick and weighs in at 174g, which makes it 0.4mm finer but 13g weightier compared to the prior variation. According to Amazon, this makes it very easy to read with only one hand. The brand new 2019 Kindle can be bought only in white or black.
