New Amazon Kindle device readable in bright sunlight

Reading ebooks on tablets usually works just fine, except many tablets have one drawback: They are often hard to read in sunlight. To solve this problem, Amazon has developed a new Kindle with some improvements of interest to avid readers. It's now available for preorder for a July 7th release.


  • 11% thinner and 16% lighter than the previous generation Kindle, making it easy and comfortable to hold in one hand.
  • Kindle uses actual ink particles and proprietary, hand-built fonts to create crisp text similar to what you see in a physical book. The blacks and whites on the screen are uniform, improving text and image quality.
  • No screen glare, even in bright sunlight, unlike tablets
  • Kindle doesn't need power to maintain a page of text, allowing you to read for weeks on a single charge.
  • Unlike reflective tablet and smartphone screens, the high contrast touchscreen display eliminates glare in any setting—even direct sunlight.
If you're interested in getting the new Kindle, then you might want to think about an Amazon Kindle Unlimited 30-Day Free Trial. For $9.99 a month, you'll get access to a large selection of ebooks in many subjects and genres.
