Amazon makes some decent e-book readers. The latest one is not as cheap as previous models, but it does offer a whole host of new features. For starters, the Kindle Voyage has a 300 ppi display to enrich your reading experience. You also get PagePress, which is a custom-designed force sensor made of carbon and silver to enable you to turn the page without lifting a finger.
The Kindle Voyage also has an adaptive front light that adjusts the brightness of the display based on your current environment. Did we mention that the new Kindle is only 7.6mm thin? You can now share your library with friends and read / understand more challenging books. Enhanced search is also coming to Kindle (allowing you to preview results from your library, Goodreads, and the Kindle store).
Here are the specs:
- Display: Amazon’s 6″ display with Carta e-paper technology
- Size: 6.4″ x 4.5″ x 0.30″ (162 mm x 115 mm x 7.6 mm)
