Kindle Paperwhite 3G's screen has 25% higher contrast. Crisp, dark text against a brilliant white background makes for the perfect read.
Innovative Built-in Light
Paperwhite guides light towards the display from above instead of projecting it out at your eyes like back-lit displays, thereby reducing screen fatigue. You can adjust your screen's brightness to create a perfect reading experience in all lighting conditions, from bright sunlight to bedtime reading.
Uncompromised Battery Life
A single charge lasts up to eight weeks, based on a half hour of reading per day with wireless off and the light setting at 10. Our breakthrough power management technology allows you to leave the light on at all times for the best possible contrast without sacrificing battery life.
Read in Bright Sunlight with No Glare
Kindle Paperwhite 3G has a matte screen that reflects light like ordinary paper so you can read as easily in bright sunlight as in your living room with no glare.
Read at Night
With Kindle Paperwhite 3G, reading in bed just got better. The patented built-in light illuminates that screen, not the entire room, so you won't disturb your partner when you can't put your book down at night.
Designed for Reading
Unlike a backlit tablet display, Kindle Paperwhite 3G guides light towards the surface of the e-ink display from above so that the light never shines directly towards your eyes, allowing you to read comfortably without eye strain.
Perfectly Balanced Whiteness
We worked on Kindle Paperwhite 3G for over two years to perfect the uniformity of the built-in light, flattening out a fiber optic cable into a sheet, and nanoimprinting to ensure perfectly even distribution of light. Our design uses nanoscale optical diffractive patterns to enable tight control over the direction of the light. Enjoy reading with exceptional lighting uniformity and evenly balanced whiteness across the entire display.
Your eyes adapt to the amount of light around you, so you'll prefer dimmer light when reading in a dark setting and brighter light when reading in well-lit surroundings. You can adjust the brightness of Kindle Paperwhite 3G across a wide spectrum - from low light to full brightness - so you can read comfortably in any setting.
Because our patented technology enables fine-grain control over where the light is diffused, Kindle Paperwhite 3G uses low-power LEDs, requiring very little power to evenly illuminate the entire screen.
