Amazon just announced the launch of a New Hi-Resolution Kindle Paperwhite that is available for delivery starting June 30th. The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite is a popular device if you are an avid book reader and it just got better with the new 300-ppi screen and a more readable font with auto-hyphenation. The Kindle Paperwhite is affordable priced at $119. The new Kindle looks and feels just like the old Paperwhite. The only difference is the 300-ppi screen instead of the current 212-ppi screen.
The new high-resolution Kindle Paperwhite comes installed with a new font, Bookerly, that the company says is even more readable. The company describes Bookerly as an exclusive new font “crafted from the ground up for digital reading.” In addition, the new Paperwhite will introduce a new typesetting engine that brings traditional layout practices such as large drop caps at the beginning of chapters, fine-tuned spacing between words and new hyphenation to create paragraphs with consistent lines.
