Paperwhite — the ultimate reading experience

Unsurpassed Resolution

Our Paperwhite display offers 62% more pixels, and renders exceptionally sharp, clear text and images.
Stunning Contrast

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.

Perfect for bed

Read at Night

With Kindle Paperwhite 3G, reading in bed just got better. The patented built-in light illuminates the 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. The built-in light illuminates the screen more evenly than a book light or lighted cover.
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. See how the screen looks in different lighting conditions.
Adjustable Brightness

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.
Power Efficient

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.

Kindle Paper White or Kingle Paperwhite 3G

Kindle Paperwhite

Kindle Paperwhite is a great choice if you already have a high-speed internet connection and wireless router set up in your home. If you do not have Wi-Fi set up at home, Kindle Paperwhite 3G may be a better option – 3G connectivity lets you download books anytime, anywhere.
Kindle Paperwhite 3G

Kindle Paperwhite 3G is the easiest option because there is no wireless setup – you are ready to shop, purchase, and read right out of the box. Built-in free 3G connectivity uses the same wireless signals that cell phones use, but there are no monthly fees or commitments – Amazon pays for Kindle Paperwhite 3G wireless connectivity. The added convenience of 3G enables you to download books anytime, anywhere, without having to find a Wi-Fi hotspot connection. Your Kindle may use wireless connectivity to make other services available, such as wireless delivery of personal documents, which may require an additional charge. For more information, see Wireless Terms and Conditions

With wireless coverage in over 100 countries and territories, Kindle Paperwhite 3G lets you download books anytime, anywhere, whether you’re relaxing on a beach, halfway through a hike, or waiting on the tarmac. Check 3G coverage area

For U.S. customers traveling abroad, additional charges apply for wireless delivery of periodical subscriptions. To avoid any charges, you can always download items via your computer and transfer them to your Kindle using USB or a Wi-Fi connection. See details
