This is the best e-ink Kindle Reader you can have right the way. The 2014 model will be available in Oct 2014. (Like Previous model in Oct 2013).
It hasn’t been announced officially yet. Kindle Voyage is just announced today (9/17/2014).
Other Kindle News in 2014:
6/18/2014 Hot Update: Amazon Fire Phone is not a rumor anymore. Check it out at Amazon Today! Sorry, it’s an US available only for now.
*** Amazon Fire TV was just announced on Apr 2nd, 2014. It’s $99 only! Check out the unbox Video here. ***
Higher Resolution Display Screen
Per the collected rumors, the new screen resolution will come in 300 ppi and will be comparable to the leading competitor model, specifically, the highest resolution display known to date, which is available on the 265ppi Kobo Aura HD.
Another improvement is that the screen will be made out of a matte glass on this model (Confirmed 9/17/14), as opposed to, plastic as seen in previous versions. Surprisingly enough, TC reports that the unit is actually lighter with glass than with the current plastic screen.
New Paperwhite Design
Another improvement reported in the works is that the front screen will be flush to the edges of the reader, as opposed to recessed as it is now.
It is also rumored that the edges will have haptic squeezable buttons for turning pages while reading. This will be great because it will keep the sleek lines of the margins.
Update 9/17/2014: It’s a real deal. Kindle Voyage has PagePress feature that triggers page-turns (Haptic Response).
Also, this new feature should please Kindle reading lovers because it will allow for tuning of pages without the awkward motion of having to reach over with the thumb to tap the ìnext pageî area, as the Paperwhiteís require now.
And, the back of the reader will include a power button, similar to that seen on Kindle Fire HDX models.
Who knows when 2014 Paperwhite will be released? Meanwhile, check out the current available one with the beautiful built-in light screen.
Reading Experience And New Typography
A built in ambient sensor is said to be included in new Kindle Paperwhite models, which will automatically adjust the screen to the lighting in the area where it is being used.
Another interesting feature that is said to be in the works is the new typography, where the Kindle Paperwhite will have a custom-built font that is created just for reading.
Mobius e-Paper Flexible Screen Opens up New Possibility
Ken updated on 5/21/2014:
Another Rumor source from Good Reader states that new Paperwhite 3 will be using Mobius screen technology from Sony. It’s 50% lighter comparing to TFT screen which is glass-based.
Not only that, the power consumption is much lower per eink tech spec. It gonna be a break-through for Paperwhite eReader family this year if it’s the case. However, I suspect this new screen technology may not be in large-scale production yet. It may add up the component cost and lower Amazon margin.
I’d love to have this kind of screen on my next Kindle. And you? Leave your thoughts below the blog post.
My Wish-list for Paperwhite 3 in 2014
This gonna be the 4th Generation of a Kindle Touch Screen. Kindle Touch (1st Gen) was introduced back to 2011.
Personally, I hope there was color e-ink. I got some Ebooks in pdf with beautiful color images. I enjoy reading those on Kindle Fire but hate a little bit glare.
Also bigger Paperwhite Screen size is preferred. That means you can see more content on the screen, with less “turning pages”.
Don’t think a “blendable” screen is needed, but higher resolution and crystal clear font is a must-have for e-ink reading.
Maybe thinner frame and smaller form-factor – more portable is an awesome upgrade. I do look forward to Paperwhite 2014 – which Amazon is cooking up for this Christmas.
