Amazon Kindle Voyage E-reader

Amazon Kindle Voyage E-reader

Amazon just announced their thinnest and highest resolution ebook reader for $199, called Kindle Voyage. The high-end, 6-inch e-reader features an all-new design with a beautiful flush glass front and a magnesium back. At just 7.6 mm thin and weighing less than 6.4 ounces, it’s even easier to hold with one hand and read for hours.

Kindle Voyage uses a brand new Paperwhite display, with the highest resolution, highest contrast, and highest brightness of any Kindle. With 300 pixels per inch, the new Paperwhite display delivers laser-quality text and images. The exclusive flush-front display stack uses specially strengthened glass, which is designed to resist scratches. Since regular glass would create glare, the cover glass on Kindle Voyage is micro-etched in order to diffuse light, ensuring you can read easily in bright light without glare. The etching pattern on the glass also serves to match the feel of paper.

A new adaptive front light automatically adjusts the brightness of the display based on the surrounding light, but can also be fine-tuned to your personal preference. Also, since the human eye adjusts to darkness over time, the light you need when you start reading in the dark will seem too bright 30 minutes later — the adaptive front light slowly lowers the display’s brightness over time to match the way the eye responds to darkness.

Kindle Voyage introduces PagePress, a new way to turn pages. PagePress uses a custom-designed force sensor that sits directly under the bezel. You simply rest your thumb on the bezel and turn the page by lightly pressing. When you turn the page, Kindle Voyage delivers tactile feedback from a haptic actuator. The actuator delivers just enough vibration to let you know you turned the page, but is subtle enough that you won’t be distracted from your reading. You can personalize both the pressure level needed to trigger a page turn and the haptic feedback level.

Kindle Voyage is available with free 3G, which means you never have to hunt for or pay for a Wi-Fi hotspot—simply download and read books anytime, anywhere, in over 100 countries around the world. Amazon pays for the 3G connection, so you pay no monthly fees and sign no annual contracts.

Price and Availability
Amazon’s Kindle Voyage E-reader will be available October 21, 2014, priced from $199 to $289 with or without 3G or “Special Offers.”
