kindle paperwhiteThe Amazon Kindle Paperwhite is one of the various e-readers offered by Amazon. While there are some benefits to using the Kindle Paperwhite, its resolution has left much to be desired. Last year’s model only had a resolution that offered 212 pixels per inch with a 6-inch display which is hardly the sharpest around, but good enough to read.

However if you thought that it could do with an upgrade in the resolution department, you will be pleased to learn that Amazon has indeed updated the Kindle Paperwhite. It will now sport a 6-inch display with a pixel density of 300 pixels per inch, making it noticeably sharper than its predecessor, which hopefully makes it an even better experience.

In fact given its price of $119, it makes it a steal over other more expensive Kindles, like the Kindle Voyager which is priced at $199, so if you don’t mind a basic e-reader with a sharp display, then perhaps the Paperwhite could be worth your consideration. Along with the updated screen resolution, the new Paperwhite will also come with Amazon’s new typesetting engine and Bookerly font.

If all of this sounds good and you wouldn’t mind getting your hands on the device, head on over to Amazon’s website where you can pre-order the e-reader where it is expected to be released on the 30th of June.
