Amazon unveiled yesterday what they describe as "our thinnest, most advanced Kindle ever." According to the official press release, the new Kindle Voyage offers the best Paperwhite display of all Kindle e-readers released so far and also offers "reimagined page turns" - all for $199 USD.

Kindle Voyage has a 6-inch display with 300 ppi, a solid increase from the 212 ppi offered by the Kindle Paperwhite. The e-reader's screen is protected by scratch resistant glass that has also been micro-etched to match the feel of real paper and to diffuse light for an enjoyable reading experience in bright light.

The front-lighting system has not been changed, but now is 39 percent brighter than before. This system can also adapt to ambient light and adjust brightness accordingly.

Kindle Voyage does not have any physical buttons for page-flipping. The new PagePress system uses sensors placed under the bezel. Haptic feedback has been added as well.

This new e-reader comes loaded with Amazon's full suite of services and features, including Kindle Unlimited, Kindle FreeTime Unlimited, Family Library, Word Wise, Enhanced Search, and more. Customers can order it already, but shipping will start in October.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
