Yesterday, Amazon introduced an updated entry-range Kindle that comes for the same price as before, but is thinner, lighter, and has a few new features as well. Even more, the all-new Kindle is also the first one to come in white since the Kindle Keyboard that arrived back in 2010.

Compared to its predecessor, the new Amazon Kindle is thinner, lighter, and features a more rounded design that allows its user to hold it easier with a single hand. The 6-inch glare-free touchscreen display remains in place, but the memory size has doubled. The reader has 0.36 pounds and measures 6.3X4.5X0.36 inches.

Although an entry-range device, the new Kindle is the first one with built-in Bluetooth audio support. This feature allows visually impaired users to use the VoiceView screen reader and enjoy their books without an adaptor.

In addition to the $79.99 USD Kindle, Amazon also introduced a white option for the $119.99 USD Kindle Paperwhite. Both can be already pre-ordered, and deliveries will start "in the coming weeks."

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
