The Amazon Kindle originally came out in 2007 and it changed the way people read digital books. Instead of a backpack or a purse with one or two books, the Kindle houses hundreds. One of the benefits of the Kindle is the eye-friendly e-paper display, making it a pure joy to read on. The technology is called E INK, and it powers the e-readers of not only the Kindle, but also Kobo and Nook branded e-readers.
Over the years, as the technology has improved, the Kindle is the most popular e-reader on the planet. The digital ecosystem has gone beyond books and now includes comics, graphic novels, magazines and newspapers.
Interested in getting a Kindle or upgrading to a new model–but not sure which one is right for you? Below is a brief overview of each e-reader to help you make that decision.
First up is the base-model Kindle. The lightest and most compact Kindle to date, with all of the great features you can expect from Kindle e-reader.
The display on the latest base-model Kindle has been upgraded, and it looks great. Kindle offers a display resolution of 300 pixels per inch, meaning that text is crisp and sharp, and ensures that even small text looks great. The display is six inches, making it the smallest Kindle display, but that also means that the device itself is smaller and more portable. And, in case you’re reading in the dark, Kindle features a built-in adjustable front light for the display.
Under the hood, the Kindle offers 16GB of storage, capable of storing thousands of books.
The base Kindle is perfect for those who want premium features at an affordable price. The base Kindle starts at $99.99 and is available in Black and Denim. You can also get a Kindle Kids model, which comes with a one-year subscription to Amazon Kids+ with thousands of award-winning kids books, parental controls, and a kid-friendly cover for $119.99.
The Kindle Paperwhite, is the most popular Kindle, and is worth considering for its range of extra features.
The Kindle Paperwhite has the same high-resolution display tech offered by the base Kindle, so you’ll still get crisp and detailed text. But the display is slightly larger, at 6.8 inches, and the display is flush with the bezel around it, which helps give it a slightly more premium feel. And, this Kindle offers 17 LED front lights and adjustable front light, for even better lighting across the screen
One other feature that the Paperwhite offers is IPX8 water resistance, which means that it should survive the odd accidental splash or drop in shallow water. This Kindle comes in two storage options: 8GB or 16GB.
