My kindle is my favourite piece of technology…so imagine my excitement when I saw this yesterday:
My kindle is already pretty much perfect and it’s now three generations old. This new model though is lighter, thinner, brighter and has much more memory.
It’s waterproof at a rating of IPX8 which means it can go a couple of meters underwater for 60 mins without being affected. Good for baths and reading in the rain!
It’s got a new improved shatter resistant screen, which is now flush with the body so no sand or dust can get trapped.
Finally, it looks to have bluetooth (bluetooth headphones/speakers) and connectivity to audible (amazon’s audio book company) so you could read, then listen, then read – and everything would sync perfectly. Quite amazing.
Plus, you get 6 months membership to Amazon unlimited which would normally cost $60 USD…….all this, for only $130 USD. I would love to work in sales for these guys. This is easiest product to sell in the known universe!
I use my kindle paperwhite multiple times a day and love it, but this….! What an update! My kindle is turning pages a little slower than it used to (really?) so it’s time for an upgrade. Delivery starts on November 7th…..so exciting!
