First-hand reports of Amazon’s newest Kindle Paperwhite are still few and far between, but I have a treat for you.
Len Edgerly of The Kindle Chronicles podcast is one of a lucky handful of bloggers to get an early review unit, and yesterday he posted a video which shows the differences between the existing Paperwhite, the new one, and the Voyage.
The new Paperwhite looks essentially identical to the older model, but under the hood it has the same 300ppi screen as on the Kindle Voyage. The new Paperwhite also has twice the RAM (512MB) and 4GB internal storage (same as on the older model).
So how do they compare? Watch the video and find out.
As you know from past press coverage, the new Paperwhite looks almost identical to the previous two models. The only obvious difference is that the first-gen model says Kindle on the back (the later two models say Amazon). The only obvious difference between the two newer Paperwhites (2013, 2015) is that the model shipping later this month has the Kindle name on the front in black ink.
The new Paperwhite costs $139, and ships at the end of June.
