Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite gets a Manga-friendly 32GB upgrade

Amazon has announced a new version of its Kindle Paperwhite e-reader with a whopping 32GB of storage.

As the name suggests, the new Kindle Paperwhite Magna edition has been conceived to enable Magna fans to fit more comics on their device.

The current edition has just 3GB of usable storage, but the 32GB upgrade will hold 700 of the comics.

The update isn’t just about storage, the processor is also 33% quicker, which will also assist those whizzing through comics.

Unfortunately the Magna edition will only be available in the genre’s homeland of Japan, when it is released on October 21.

No word yet on whether it will be available in other countries.

The latest Kindle Paperwhite earned a 9/10 score from TrustedReviews this summer.

It received praise for its great screen impressive battery and responsive display. It fell just short of perfection due to having no audio and being locked into Amazon’s ecosystem.
