Good news, book lovers! Amazon is selling the high-resolution version of the Kindle Paperwhite ebook reader at a discounted price.
If you’re in the UK, you’ll be able to pick up a 6-inch Kindle Paperwhite e-reader from Amazon for £89.99, which is £20 below the usual £109.99 asking price.
It’s worth mentioning that the Amazon Paperwhite has retailed for a lower price of £79.99 before, but only during the Black Friday sales period. That’s according to the CamelCamelCamel website, which tracks the prices of Amazon goods over time.
Unlike the original Paperwhite, the new Amazon Paperwhite features a high-resolution display with a pixel density of 300ppi. That’s important, because it puts the screen on par with the much more expensive Kindle Voyage.
The sharp, crisp screen also features a built-in and adjustable light for day and night reading, but avoids screen glare even in bright sunlight – unlike conventional tablets.
A single battery charge will last several weeks, and the ebook reader can store thousands of books, all purchasable through the built-in Amazon online store.
We gave the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite a very respectable 4.5/5 score in our review, praising the ebook reader’s great screen, impressive battery, and responsive display.
Here’s our verdict, as written by Mobile Editor Max Parker:
“If you’ve yet to get yourself an e-reader, or are just looking to upgrade from an older model, the latest Paperwhite is a great choice. In fact, we’d probably g as far as saying it’s the best all-round e-reader on the market.”
