The Kindle Experience

Read in Bright Sunlight

E Ink screens look and read just like real paper. Kindle e-readers' matte screens reflect light like ordinary paper and use no backlighting, so you can read as easily in bright sunlight as in your living room. Unlike LCD screens, E Ink screens have no glare.

Lighter, More Compact Than Ever

Less than 170 grams. Lighter than a paperback, fits in your pocket.

Up to One Month Battery Life

No battery anxiety - read for up to one month on a single charge.

Sharp, Clear Text

Kindle uses actual ink particles and proprietary, hand-built fonts to create crisp, print-like text similar to what you see in a physical book. The screen's 100% aperture ratio means no gaps between pixels. The blacks and whites on the screen are uniform, improving image quality.

Easy on the Eyes

E Ink uses actual ink particles to create crisp, print-like text similar to what you see in a physical book. And Kindle e-readers also use proprietary, hand-built fonts to take advantage of the special characteristics of the ink to make letters appear clear and sharp.

Read in Any Position

When you read for long periods of time, you often switch positions to get more comfortable. Kindle has a uniform contrast ratio that does not change with your viewing angle, so you can read in any position.

Adjustable Text Sizes, Font Choices

Kindle has eight adjustable font sizes to suit your reading preference. You can increase the text size of your favourite book with the push of a button. If your eyes tire, simply increase the font size and continue reading comfortably. Kindle also has three font styles to choose from - all optimised and hand-tuned to provide the best reading experience.

Custom Fonts

Kindle uses hand-built, custom fonts and font-hinting to make words and letters more crisp, clear, and natural-looking. Font hints are instructions, written as code, that control points on a font character's line, improving legibility at small font sizes where few pixels are available. Hinting is a mix of aesthetic judgments and complicated technical strategies. Proprietary font-hinting has been designed to optimise specifically for the special characteristics of electronic ink.

Support for Non-Latin Characters

Kindle supports the display of non-Latin characters, so you can read books and documents in the translation that's right for you. Kindle displays Cyrillic (such as Russian), Japanese, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified) and Korean characters, in addition to Latin and Greek scripts.

Real Page Numbers

The pages of a Kindle book are matched to the text in a print book to identify the corresponding "real" page number. Easily reference and cite passages or read alongside others in a book club or class. Available on tens of thousands of Amazon's most popular Kindle books. Page numbers are displayed when you push the menu button.

Precise 5-Way Controller

Kindle has an easy-to-use 5-way controller, enabling precise on-screen navigation for selecting text to highlight or looking up words. No on-screen fingerprints.

Fast Page Turns

Kindle's powerful processor is tuned for fast, seamless page turns.

Whispersync

Whispersync technology synchronises your last page read, bookmarks and annotations across your devices so you can always pick up where you left off.

Free Library Backup

An automatic back up of your library is created in the cloud. Re-download wirelessly anytime for free.

Search Wikipedia and the Web

Kindle makes it easy to find what you're looking for. Just enter a word or phrase and Kindle will search every instance across your Kindle library, in the Kindle Store, on Wikipedia, or the Web using Google search.

Built-In Dictionary with Instant Lookup

Come across a word you don't know? Kindle includes The Oxford Dictionary of English with over 250,000 entries and definitions for free. Kindle lets you instantly look up the definition without ever leaving the book - simply select the word with the cursor and the definition will automatically display at the bottom of the screen.

Supports Children's Books and Comics

Kindle supports children's books with Kindle Text Pop-Up, and comic books with Kindle Panel View which allows you to read a comic book panel by panel.

Personal Document Delivery

Kindle makes it easy to take your personal documents with you, eliminating the need to print. You and your approved contacts can e-mail documents - including Word, PDF and more - directly to your Kindle and read them in Kindle format. You can also send documents to your Kindle using Send to Kindle.

Bookmarks and Annotations

Add annotations to text, just like you might write in the margins of a book, with a virtual keyboard that appears just when you need it. And because it is digital, you can edit, delete, and export your notes. You can highlight and clip key passages and bookmark pages for future use. You'll never need to bookmark your last place in the book, because Kindle remembers for you and always opens to the last page you read.
