Amazon Updates the Kindle Paperwhite

Amazon has updated their [Kindle Paperwhite]( model (the model I have currently) with a higher resolution screen and Amazon’s new “Bookerly” font. As someone who reads on his Kindle almost nightly, I find this to be a really interesting upgrade.[^f1535].

The New Kindle Voyage

Today, Amazon released the new [Kindle Voyage]([^aff], an upgrade over the existing [Kindle Paperwhite]( It looks like a really awesome reader, but I am going to have to wait for some reviews before I can say that it’s $100 better than the Paperwhite.[^note]

[^note]: I have a Kindle Paperwhite that I absolutely love it. Also, it’s unclear from Amazon’s announcement whether or not the Paperwhite will be sold going forward.

Amazon Launches Kindle Matchbook

Amazon has launched their new [Kindle Matchbook]( service, which reviews your previous book purchases to determine if you’re eligible for discounted Kindle versions. As you would expect, only a few publishers are signed up at the moment, but hopefully this program will go as time goes on.[^fn1]

[^fn1]: Currently, I have about 20 books that I could get eBook versions for, ranging in prices of $1.99 to $2.99.

Hopefully, with services with this, the days of huge textbooks are finally starting to come to an end. They have lasted far longer than they should have.


The Verge Review of the Kindle Fire HD

> As that device, the Fire HD still has a long way to go. I think it can get there, but it isn’t there yet.

Ultimately, he feels it is a solid device for consumption of Amazon content. As always, the video review is worth your time if you want to get a good feel for what the device offers.


Best Coverage of the new Kindle Lineup

Though [The Verge]( has some good stories on [new Amazon Kindle lineup](, [Techhive]( is absolutely killing it:

* [Summary](
* [New e-reader Hands On](
* [Kinde Fire HD: Hands On](
* [How the new Kindle fires Impact the Tablet Landscape](
* [4 Things to Know Before You Buy a Kindle Fire](

The new [Paperwhite]( model looks pretty sweet.
