Importantly, it can now be charged via the widely available USB-C connector, eliminating the micro-USB present in the previous range of devices. This e-reader also supports features such dark mode, an adjustable front light, X-Ray (which provides details about people or places mentioned in books), and a built-in dictionary to look up the definitions of words. Eric Saarnio, Vice President of Amazon Devices International, said that the Kindle is “the latest example of how we continue to bring premium features to our most affordable devices for even more customers to enjoy.”
Amazon has announced its latest generation Kindle e-reader. It has a higher resolution, more storage, a bigger battery, and USB-C charging. The retailer also introduced Kindle Kids, which comes with a kid-friendly case, a one-year Amazon Kids+, and a two-year worry-free warranty. The new Kindle features a 6-inch anti-glare display with a resolution of 300 ppi, which is three times sharper than his previous generation. Battery life is now up to six weeks, and storage is double that of his predecessor at 16 GB.
Along with revealing the Kindle, Amazon also showed off the new Kindle Kids. This device has the same hardware, but also comes with a “kid-friendly cover”, a two-year worry-free guarantee, and one year of Kindle Kids+. This subscription service provides unlimited access to over one thousand age-appropriate books to read, and hundreds of audiobooks available on Audible that you can listen to via Bluetooth speakers or headphones.
The construction includes 90% recycled magnesium, and the packaging is 100% recyclable and is made from wood fibre-based materials from responsibly managed forests or recycled sources; the accessory covers, available in Black, Rose Denim, and Dark Emerald, are made from 99% wood fibre-based materials.
The Amazon Parent Dashboard also allows parents or guardians to set reading and bedtime schedules. You can also help your child learn with tools like vocabulary builders and language learning audiobooks. Saarnio adds: The new Kindle Kids offers an even better reading experience, helping children become lifelong readers. ” Children’s cover designs include Space Whale, Unicorn Valley, and Ocean Explorer themes.
