Release date: October 22

When Amazon announced updated models to their Fire tablets and Kindle e-book readers, it’s the latter that saw the most obvious technological improvement. The Kindle Paperwhite uses a new proprietary display that has a contrast range 25% higher than in prior Kindles, 62% more pixels to produce sharper images, and a built-in backlight. Basically, the Paperwhite shows text set against white in such a way that it very closely emulates the appearance of text on actual paper -- and you can read it in a low-light environment. The Kindle Paperwhite solidified Amazon as the leader in the e-book device market.
