Amazon has announced an all-new Kindle Paperwhite, featuring a thinner and lighter design, sleek flush-front display, and waterproofing. It also comes with Audible so you can read and listen to a large selection of audiobooks.

“Customers love the Kindle Paperwhite, and we’re excited to bring premium features—like a thinner and lighter flush-front design, additional storage, waterproofing, and Audible—to our most popular Kindle,” said Eric Saarnio, Head of Amazon Devices, Europe. “With the all-new Kindle Paperwhite, it’s never been easier to get lost in the author’s story no matter where you go.”

Features:
● Sleek, modern design
The all-new Kindle Paperwhite features a sleek, flush-front design and a back made of soft, grippable material so it rests easily in your hand. It is the thinnest and lightest Kindle Paperwhite yet, measuring 8.18mm thick and weighing 182g—less than half the weight of many paperback books—so extended reading sessions are even more comfortable. The six-inch, high resolution 300 ppi display features crisp, printed-quality text that reads like real paper. It also includes five LEDs and an adjustable front light for a uniform, glare-free display in any setting—even direct sunlight.

● The first waterproof Kindle Paperwhite
The most popular Kindle is now waterproof so you can read in even more places. The all-new Kindle Paperwhite is designed to withstand getting splashed at the beach or dropped in the bath tub, or pool. It’s IPX8 rated to protect against immersion in up to two metres of fresh water for up to 60 minutes.

With Bluetooth built-in, listen to your favourite Audible book and switch seamlessly between reading and listening so you never lose your place.
