Amazon have revealed their UK release date and pricing for their very latest Kindle e-reader, the Kindle Paperwhite.
If you love reading and technology then an e-reader is the perfect product for you, with the product category in recent years obliterating the paper book industry. That’s no bad thing however if you are indeed an e-reader believer, and Amazon with their Kindle are the largest player within the e-reader market.
If you have been tuning in to technology news over the last few months then you will know that Amazon have launched their latest addition to their Kindle range, the Kindle Paperwhite, of which features back lighting for the first time on a Kindle. The build has also changed significantly from previous generations also, with Amazon opting for a more subdued professional look ditching the silver palette for a darker one, whilst the display is touch screen for intuitive input.
If you are on the hunt for a new e-reader, the Kindle Paperwhite is perhaps the very best e-reader money will be able to buy upon release. Barnes & Noble do however have good offerings with their Nook Simple Touch.
UK release date and pricing
The ad-supported basic model of the Kindle Paperwhite will knock you back £109, while an extra £60 will get you the 3G version. Amazon’s Lending Library service will roll-out at the same time, offering Prime members free loans from a collection of 200,000 books as part of the £49 per year subscription.PS: Digging this story, news or review?
