Amazon’s 3rd major update on its so-called reading device, the Kindle, is out in stores with strong points: the new graphite finish (just like its big brother, the Kindle DX) with a slimmer, lighter form factor, plus a bumped refresh rate for its E Ink screen.
The new Kindle comes is out in two models: 3G and Wi-Fi, and Wi-Fi only. There’s a $50 difference in the two Kindles. If you are going to use your Kindle within a Wi-fi Network, then the Wi-Fi only model is the model you are looking for and if you are going to be buying books on the go, then the 3G version is for you.
In the new Kindle, the size itself is significantly reduced, but the reading area is still 6 inches with higher contrast and even under the brightest sunlight, it looks brilliantly clear. The new Kindle is out in market with a new slim look.
When it comes to the weight, the new Kindle is 15 per cent lighter and weighs only 247g and if you choose Wi-Fi only, then the weight is snipped to a stupidly lean 241g.
The memory size of Kindle is also increased. Now one can store 3,500 books in his Kindle.
The battery life is increased that much, that one could use his Kindle without charging for a month, but when it comes to heavy Wi-fi usage, the battery life is still efficient to work for continues 10 days without charging.
