It’s not just a step forward from the Kindle Paperwhite — it’s a leap forward. Crystal-clear resolution. A display screen that’s flush with the surrounding frame so pesky side shadows are eliminated entirely. Dramatically improved page-turn features that allow for a greater variety of positions in which you can hold the device comfortably in one hand while reading for extended periods of time. The backlight technology first introduced in the Paperwhite is also on hand. Literally. When the Kindle was first introduced years ago, I was one of the naysayers who said it would never catch on. But for anyone who travels extensively or reads compulsively, you simply can’t beat the portability of this device or the instant access to a bookstore that’s fully stocked and always open, any time of day or night.
