Amazon Kindle Paperwhite e-Reader Review [Tablet]: Amazon has formally set foot in the Indian market and newly introduced two tablets – the Kindle Fire HD tablets and the Kindle Paperwhite e-reader. The problem that is on everyone’s brain is whether you in fact need a devoted e-reader device when you are able to read e-books on the tablets or even a Smartphone? We got our hands on the Kindle Paperwhite and were interested to see how special the reading knowledge would be. Is it value spending in an e-reader? So, let’s go through the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Review.
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Review:
More From Geeks9: See all latest gadgets review.
The Paperwhite e-reader will make an impression you with its stylishly modest and curved edges in matte black finish. Its 6-inch capacitive touch screen snuggles within a plastic bezel. The rubberized back panel offers it a good grip, but it gathers blotches rather simply. The front bezel is just wide sufficient to rest your fingers contentedly when holding the device. On the base panel, you will observe a Kindle logo in white. The power button is expediently located at the bottom, beside the micro-USB slot. Lacking a physical keyboard and buttons, the Paperwhite sports a toned-down look when contrasted to the earlier generation Kindle. At 222 grams, the Paperwhite is not too grave, and its 169 x 117 x 9.1 mm dimension makes it extremely moving. Using the Paperwhite alone does not really pose a trouble.
The tablet marks a 6-inch Paperwhite display packing-in 212 pixels per inch and displaying 16 level gray scales. The Paperwhite display is fundamentally a front-lit display that directs light under an anti-glare layer and down toward the display, absent from the reader’s eyes, permitting readers to read with less eye fatigue and strain. Amazon states that the e-reader presents 25 percent superior contrast for pointing dark text and packs in 62 percent more pixels for higher resolution. The screen’s intensity can be attuned to reading in dissimilar light conditions.
OS Platform Review:
It runs on the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. Amazon has known the Kindle Paperwhite e-reader a novel OS, which feels much more similar to a tablet operating system as different to the spayed and plain OSs on past devices.
Coming to the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Review of Processor, it features a 1 GHz TI OMAP 4430. Its performance is faster with any application. It features a faster performance with all the applications we had tested so you no need to bother about this processor.
Memory and Storage Review:
It approaches with 2GB of internal storage space out of which 1.25GB is obtainable to the customer, able of holding approximately 1100 books. It in addition presents free cloud storage for all content (books and magazines) purchased from Amazon.
To the extent that connectivity is worried, the Kindle Paperwhite and Paperwhite 3G both hold up 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi hotspots, with WEP, WPA, or WPA2 encryption allowed. The 3G model works over AT&T’s data network as before and in addition works on a lot of abroad networks; I had no problem with it throughout the review. You by no means disburse for 3G access, but Amazon limits you to either shopping for or buying books, or accessing Wikipedia with it. The Kindle Paperwhite 3G in addition connected to our WPA2-encrypted labs network devoid of issue.
Just as with last year’s account, the Paperwhite e-reader is fine for approximately eight weeks of reading on an only charge, with wireless turned off, even though Amazon says that is with the front light setting at 10. A full charge takes four hours. Either way, battery life just is not a difficulty with E Ink-based ebook readers, and the Kindle Paperwhite is no exemption.
Going with the general presentation and user-friendliness, not to forget the quality of display, the Paperwhite is certainly one of the most excellent e-readers obtainable in the market. It is obtainable in two variants – you are able to choose for the Wi-Fi only model that will cost you Rs 10, 999 or the Wi-Fi + 3G model that will set you back by Rs 13,999.
