The Kindle Paperwhite 6" eReader features a slim, lightweight design and an anti-glare, 6" Carta e-paper display with capacitive touch control and next-generation built-in light. Its battery lasts for up to 8 weeks and it offers access to thousands of books from a variety of sources. The Paperwhite's high-resolution display provides 212 ppi and it offers more contrast than previous Kindle models. The Paperwhite also has a 25% faster processor that allows you to open books and turn pages faster than you could on older Kindle eReaders.

Besides the obvious advantage that you can carry up to 1100 books with you at all times, the Paperwhite offers several other useful features that make reading more fulfilling. If you don't know a word, just tap on it and a definition will appear. You can access footnotes easier as well. Just tap on each footnote and it appears on the page. The Paperwhite comes with an exclusive X-Ray function as well, which you can use to learn about themes, characters and relevant information throughout a book.

The Paperwhite also includes features for kids. You can create FreeTime profiles personalized for kids. Their reading accomplishments are rewarded with achievement badges and a progress report lets parents stay abreast of what their kids are reading, how much time they spent reading, and what words they've looked up. The Paperwhite's other features include access to free books, personalized recommendations, and fast Wi-Fi connectivity so you can download books without ever needing to connect the Paperwhite to a computer.

Glare-Free Carta E-Paper Capacitive Touch Display
Unlike reflective tablet and smartphone screens, the Kindle Paperwhite reads like paper and features no glare - even in bright sunlight.
Battery Only Needs to Charge Monthly
A single charge can last up to eight weeks (based on 30 min of reading per day with wireless off and the light setting at 10).
Built-In Next Generation Light
Unlike the LED backlighting in tablets that shines in your eyes and causes eye-strain, the Kindle Paperwhite guides light toward the surface of the display with its next-gen front light. You can also adjust your screen's brightness for reading in any light.
Read Comfortably with One Hand
Thinner than a pencil and weighing only 7.3 oz, the Paperwhite's compact and lightweight design makes it easy to comfortably hold in one hand for long reading sessions.
Paperwhite Is a Dedicated eReader with No Distractions
Kindle Paperwhite is purposely designed as a dedicated eReader. Indulge your love of reading without worrying about interruptions like email alerts or text messages.
Whiter Background Screen & Darker Text
This Kindle Paperwhite model features a high-resolution display with whiter screen and darker text than its predecessor. This contrast creates sharp, clear text that's easy to read. The high-res display also supports a larger variety of typeface options including Baskerville and Palatino. Plus, all fonts on the Paperwhite have been hand-tuned at the pixel level for better readability and comfort.
Flip Through Pages without Losing Your Place
The Paperwhite's innovative Page Flip feature lets you skim page-by-page, scan by chapter, or skip to the end for a sneak peek without losing your place.
Fast & Easy Page Turns
The Paperwhite's processor is 25% faster than its predecessor. Books open and pages turn faster for a more seamless experience. It also uses improved capacitive touch technology that responds more accurately to smallest touches.
Bookmarks
You can highlight and clip key passages and bookmark pages for future use. You'll never need to bookmark your last place in the book, because Kindle remembers for you and always opens to the last page you read.
Take & Share Notes
Add margin notes that you can edit, delete or even export from the Paperwhite to your computer. You can also share highlighted sections and meaningful quotes on Facebook and Twitter, as well as see passages frequently highlighted by other Kindle readers.
Look Up Information Instantly
The Paperwhite's Smart Lookup feature integrates entries from The New Oxford American Dictionary with information from X-Ray and Wikipedia so you can access definitions, characters, settings and more without leaving your page or losing your place.
Explore Your Books with X-Ray
Use the exclusive Kindle X-Ray function to see all the passages across a book that mention relevant ideas, fictional characters, historical figures, places or topics of interest. Simply press and hold the name to zoom in on a character's bio.
Adjust Text Size
Design your own reading experience by increasing the text size to suit you. Choose from eight text sizes to prevent tired eyes and keep you reading longer.

      I purchased this for a family member, and it's a simple book reader that does what it does without much fuss, and I give high marks for the cost-to-performance ratio, however the device is slow for my tastes, and I can't imagine having to surf the internet on the thing, or load up my own PDFs without issues, etc..

      Do not even remotely consider this device if you're looking for iPad or Android performance + versatility; However, if you're strictly looking for a competent book reader that is light, has great form factor, and is highly competent in what it does, then this device is a good buy.

      I found it easy to read in various lighting conditions, and I would much rather take the Paperwhite Kindle with me on a trip as opposed to an actual magazine or book.

      When I initially charged up the device via my notebook's USB, the battery graphic never showed it gaining a charge... not even when I used my iPhone's charger to charge it (don't buy the Kindle charger- waste of money). Later I noticed that the device reported fully charged only after I unplugged it from the charging device which still doesn't make sense to me.

      For anyone just wanting a book reader, I recommend the device.

      The paperwhite was purchased for portability and reading in different lighting situations as a secondary reader to Kindle. Fine for this purpose. Some negatives, notable that the capacitive touch capablility is not as sharp as the Kindle requiring some pounding and pressing to navigate. Also, the reading status is not synced to the cloud requiring redownload from the cloud to return where last read.

            Amazon really nailed it with this iteration of the paperwhite. It is so light and convenient and makes reading enjoyable again (I am not a fan of touting a book everywhere - one, because of the bulk, and two, because others try to look at what you are reading). There is no eye strain, thanks to the lack of backlighting. If you are a prime user - USE THAT LENDING LIBRARY!

              As much as I liked my original Kindle, this one is the BEST! I often read in bed, and the backlight is eons ahead of the hang-on light I once used! VERY user friendly, and a super buy at the current price. Could not be more satisfied.

                The Kindle Paperwhite is not like reading on a computer screen. It is like paper that glows. Also, because this device is dedicated to reading books, it's free from distractions like internet browsers and random apps like you would find on a tablet. Factastic product. Awesome display. Great way to save space by not hving to keep/buy as many hard copy books.

                  Great little reader. The back light function helps the eyes. Page transition is weird at first. Especially if you are used to the Ipad. But it it the way kindle refreshes the page. You will get used to it. Ad's are only on the sleep screen and under the library. they don't show while you read. I suggest getting a case.

                      I moved to the Paperwhite from the Touch. I would have been satisfied with the Touch but for the fact that it needed at reading light in the dark. The glow screen of the Paperwhite is what hooked me. I love it! It is just as I expected. I really enjoy reading at night sans a reading light.

                          I use my Kindle to read at home, and while I'm on the bus going to and from work. It is so great to be able to continue to read as the bus goes through tunnels and under overpasses. The backlight is great. It's there when you need it, but you don't even notice that it's on most of the time. I also really like that there are so many different levels that the backlight can be set at.
                          The battery life does seem to be a bit shorter than a regular kindle, but I guess that makes sense with the additional energy that a backlight uses. I haven't had any issues with it running out though.
                          The special offers and ads are pushed much more heavily in this kindle than with my last one (first gen touch kindle). They advertise books to you on the page of books that you own. So you only see three of the books you own at a time on the page, the rest is ads for other books.

                            My mom was very excited to get her new Kindle Paperwhite for Mother's Day. She has not spent a lot of time playing with all the features it has to offer but she loves the lightweight feel and easy to read screen. It fits in her purse so she has all her books whenever she wants them.

                                Excellent as a reader but after having used a Asus Nexus 7 with acts like a full fledged color computer (well almost)with Kindle on it. The Kindle reader does seem limited. On the other hand to use as a digital book only it works just fine.

                                  Great product for reading novels; not sure about magazines or periodicals... Great features for adjusting fonts and text size. Very intuitive. Screen works as if by 'magic'. Extremely readable in all lighting conditions. Really an incredible e-ink experience. The device is a bit pricy when comparing it to full-featured tablets such as the Kindle Fires and Google Nexuses, so you'll have to be the judge if the readability and long battery life are worth the trade-offs.

                                    .....This is the newest generation Kindle PaperWhite2.There is no big differences between the first one and this; paperwhite slightly better than first one. And the color of screen most warm than first gen. First paperwhite has a cool white screen with light; this one warmer, between white and beige and in long term readings it will be better. You can see the difference between PaperWhite 1 - PaperWhite2 and Nook Simle Touch with GlowLight on the atteched picture.

A lot of PDF format book can be converted in an acceptable way, though the conversion is still not perfect. The kindle paperwhite is very light, you can even not feel it, and the paper ink is very comfortable for eyes.
