This second generation Kindle Paperwhite comes with an improved front lit screen, to reduce eyestrain further compared to your iPad or iPhone’s LCD (especially at night). It has a higher contrast display and has a new faster processor.

Amazon also touts the light form factor by saying “Read with one hand — over 30% lighter than iPad mini.”

With Amazon’s Whispersync technology, where you left off in your book is synced to all your devices, so you’ll never lose your place. So from iPhone or iPad to the Kindle Paperwhite you’ll always be up to speed.

I enjoy ending the day by reading on my Kindle Paperwhite, as it’s much easier and helps relax my eyes after staring at LCDs all day.

The Kindle Paperwhite launched in Canada last January and rarely goes on sale—last year it was discounted by $10 but this current discount doubles that.

  • Thanks for the heads up, Gary. I’ve been planning to buy a Kindle for years…and finally ordered one. I ended up picking up a case as well — probably a bit overpriced (as cases usually are), but it did receive excellent reviews overall.

  • Cheers Tim. I have the overpriced leather case in black, and it’s awesome! It’s seamless to turn the Kindle on and off and it feels great in the hand.

  • Thanks for sharing your experiences with the case, Gary. I know I’m more likely to carry my Kindle around if it’s protected in a case…and being able to turn it on and off using the case is a bonus. I ended up going for the blue one…looks pretty sharp in the photos.
