Amazon Kindle Paperwhite review (2013)

theverge.com
7 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Amazon won the ebook reader war. Like the iPod, the Swiffer, or Jell-O, the Kindle is just what you buy when you want what it does. Barnes & Noble and Sony went down swinging trying to compete, and Kobo and Iriver are but gnats to be swatted by the great Amazon behemoth.
  • Pros: Improved display, faster page-turning, Amazon's bookstore is enormous, Reference materials and options are really useful
  • Cons: Recommendations and ads are hard to distinguish, Still no charger in the box

Review of the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite

Good E-Book Readers
1 April 2013
  • Conclusion: During the last five years we have seen the e-Reader industry mature in a very short period of time. Since we started to review Readers back when the Kindle 2 first came out, we have seen the rise of Barnes and Noble, Kobo and many indie companies.
  • Pros: High Resolution, Expansive Ecosystem, Good Parental Controls, Handles PDF’s Well, Home Screen is Upgraded from Prior Models, Best Demonstration of Glow Technology Found in e-Readers, Lots of International Support
  • Cons: Locks you Into the Amazon ecosystem, Does not read EPUB, Special Offers Costs $20.00 to Remove

Review: Amazon Kindle Paperwhite

Wired
30 September 2012
  • Excerpt: The new Kindle Paperwhite isn’t the perfect character. Just like the literary creations that live and die on its screen, it has flaws. It’s wise, though it still suffers from memories of its past. But in the great e-reader saga, it’s clearly the protagonist, and one worth rooting for.
  • Pros: Nearly perfect front-lit screen. Improved capacitive touch. Superior contrast, sharpness and texture. Charges over standard USB and lasts forever (6 to 8 weeks). Features like X-Ray and Time to Read make reading funner. Ads? Who cares!
  • Cons: Ads (if you care). Light blooms at bottom of screen can be distracting. No physical page-turning buttons.
