What̢۪s Hot and Not With the Kindle Paperwhite?

People read for a variety of reasons. Some do it because they want to learn about something, thus they read on whatever it is. There are also people who just want to read to entertain themselves and find the activity as a stress reliever. It just so happens that for these people, passing the time and entertaining oneself has changed, and even this revered habit of reading has evolved. With the birth and popularity of e-book readers, a subculture has risen, with distinguished nuances different from bookworms who prefer books they can hold, and also wouldn't want to be seen with any gadget to replace their beloved tomes.


With the rising culture of e-books comes the recognition of the Kindle, Amazonâs gadget that caters specifically for the storage and reading of electronic books. After all, there are people who do not want to read books and surf the Internet and play games all using the same gadget. There are some tablet PCs (even including the Kindle Fire, which is also by Amazon) that combine all of these things, but there are also purists who only want an e-book reader, which is why the Kindle is still very popular. It does have web access, but this is primarily for acquiring or buying e-books.



One look into stores that sell tablets and accessories like the iPad charging station would say that the number of people who want a dedicated gadget only of reading e-books is stable. They do not want a lot of bells and whistles that would just distract them from their reading habits, which is why the simple Kindle e-reader is still a hit.

The Kindle Paperwhite is the newest model of dedicated e-readers from Amazon, the worldâs largest online marketplace/bookstore. Now on its second edition (the 2nd generation of Paperwhites was just released on September 30, Amazonâs pride just got even better, and you wonât even doubt for a second why it is still the most popular e-reader. The Paperwhite feature of the screen is the factor that sets it as the standard among e-book reader models.


The new Paperwhite glows, thanks to its built-in backlight, which makes it possible for readers to enjoy their book even in low light. Moreover, this new generation of Paperwhites just got better with that backlight feature, as the backlight now goes through the entire parameter of the tablet, unlike the previous one that only has light emanating from the lower portion of the screen. So, if you have an iPad and accessories like the iPad charging station or apple Thunderbolt cable, and you are an avid reader, it is still very much advisable to get a Paperwhite, especially this generation.


Moreover, the Kindle Paperwhite still has its capacitive screen that makes you feel like you are actually flipping through paper used in expensive hardcover books. The tactile feel can make even the most jaded user feel like he or she is actually reading a book, albeit a very thin and light one.


The new Paperwhite sells for $119, with an option for a WiFi/3Gg model for an additional $21. If you are into reading more than anything else, even if you already have the most advanced tablet accessories like the iPad charging station, it is still wise to invest on a Kindle Paperwhite.
