After announcing the new Kindle with touch screen, Amazon launched Kindle Voyage, which is a new eBook Reader. It’s the 7th generation e-ink Kindle eBook reader.
The Kindle Voyage has a 6-inch display at 300 PPI pixel density. The built-in light has a new display technology with higher contrast that makes it 39% brighter. The device has a new light sensor on top of the front light which automatically adjusts the brightness of the display based on the surrounding light.
The new eBook reader from Amazon has exclusive flush-front display stack which uses specially strengthened glass, designed to resist scratches. The glass has been micro-etched in order to diffuse light so that you can read without glare. It also has another new feature which is the PagePress page turn feature that has a force sensor under the bezel so that you can simply rest your thumb on the bezel and turn the page by light pressing. This technology also provides haptic feedback to let you know that you have turned the page.
The Kindle Voyage is only 7.6 mm thick, which makes it the most thinnest Kindle yet. The device weighs only 188 grams, which makes it even lighter than the Paperwhite. It has the usual WiFi 802.11 b/g/n support with 4 GB storage. The company promises a battery life of up to 6 weeks with wireless off. It also comes in a 3G variant with built-in 3G and EDGE/GPRS support.
Kindle Voyage is now up for pre-order in the US starting at $199 for the WiFi version and $269 for the WiFi + 3G version. They would ship in October.
