Detailed Features

Elegant, Easy-to-Use Design
Lose

Yourself in Your Reading
The most elegant feature of a physical book is that it

disappears while you're reading. Immersed in the author's world and ideas, you

don't notice a book's glue, the stitching, or ink. Our top design objective is to

make Kindle disappear — just like a physical book — so you can get lost in your

reading, not the technology.

Ergonomic Design
Kindle is easy to hold and

read. We designed it with long-form reading in mind. When reading for long periods of

time, people naturally shift positions and often like to read with one hand.

Kindle's page-turning buttons are located on both sides, allowing you to read and

turn pages from any position. The new soft-touch, textured back is comfortable to

hold and never gets hot in your hands.

Precise 5-Way Controller
Kindle has

an easy-to-use 5-way controller, enabling precise on-screen navigation for selecting

text to highlight or looking up words. No on-screen fingerprints.

Never Gets

Hot
Unlike a laptop, Kindle never gets hot so you can read comfortably as long as

you like.


Wireless Capability
Built-in Wi-Fi
Kindle automatically

detects nearby Wi-Fi networks at school, home, or your favourite café. At a hotel or

café that requires a password? Simply enter the password and connect to the network.

Once you have added a Wi-Fi network, Kindle will automatically connect to that

network the next time you’re near the hotspot.


E-Ink 101
Latest

Generation E Ink
Kindle uses E Ink Pearl – the latest generation of E Ink

technology available – to deliver clear, crisp text you can read without strain.




How Electronic Ink Works
Electronic ink uses actual ink particles to create

crisp, print-like text similar to what you see in a physical book. Kindle uses

proprietary, hand-built fonts to take advantage of the special characteristics of the

ink to make letters appear clear and sharp.

Reads Like Real Paper, Even in

Bright Sunlight
Because Kindle's electronic display uses E Ink, it looks and

reads like real paper. Kindle's screen reflects light like ordinary paper and uses

no backlighting, so you can read as easily in bright sunlight as in your living room.




Reading on Kindle
Adjustable Text Size
Kindle has eight adjustable

font sizes to suit your reading preference. You can increase the text size of your

favourite book or periodical with the push of a button. If your eyes tire, simply

increase the font size and continue reading comfortably.

New Font Choices



Kindle has three font styles to choose from – all optimised and hand-tuned to

provide the best reading experience.

Fast Page Turns
Kindle now has 10%

faster page turns with 6 times less flashing. We've done this by fine-tuning

Kindle's proprietary waveform, the series of electronic pulses that move black and

white electronic ink particles to achieve a final grey level for an image or text.



Clearest Fonts
Kindle uses hand-built, custom fonts and font-hinting to

make words and letters more crisp, clear, and natural-looking. Font hints are

instructions, written as code, that control points on a font character's line,

improving legibility at small font sizes where few pixels are available. Hinting is a

mix of aesthetic judgments and complicated technical strategies. We've designed our

proprietary font-hinting to optimize specifically for the special characteristics of

electronic ink.

Support for Non-Latin Characters
Kindle supports the

display of non-Latin characters, so you can read books and documents in the

translation that’s right for you. Kindle displays Cyrillic (such as Russian),

Japanese, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), and Korean characters, in addition to

Latin and Greek scripts. View Details

Images and Photos
Kindle's E Ink

Pearl display is also great for more graphical content. Images and photos display

with high resolution.

Rotate Between Portrait and Landscape Mode
Switch

between portrait and landscape orientation to read maps, graphs and tables more

easily.

Real Page Numbers
Easily reference and cite passages or read

alongside others in a book club or class with real page numbers. Using the computing

fabric of Amazon Web Services, we've created algorithms that match specific text in

a Kindle book to the corresponding text in a print book, to identify the correct,

"real" page number to display. Available on tens of thousands of our most popular

Kindle books, including the top 100 bestselling books in the Kindle Store that have

matching print editions. Page numbers are displayed when you push the menu button.



Built-In PDF Reader
Native PDF support allows you to carry and read your

personal and professional documents on the go. With Amazon's Whispernet service, you

can send documents direct to your Kindle and read them anytime, anywhere. You can

also add notes and highlights, use the dictionary look-up, and read password-

protected PDFs. Magnify your PDFs by viewing them in landscape mode, or zoom in up to

300% to view small print and detailed tables and graphics. You can also convert your

PDF document to the Kindle format so that it reflows like a regular Kindle book.

Personal Document Delivery
Kindle makes it easy to take your

personal documents with you, eliminating the need to print. Each Kindle has a unique

and customisable e-mail address. You can set your unique e-mail address on your

Manage Your Kindle page. This allows you and your approved contacts to send Word, PDF

and text documents, and pictures to your Kindle via Wi-Fi for no fee. Learn More




Dictionary and Search
Built-In Dictionary with Instant Lookup
Come

across a word you don’t know? Kindle includes The Oxford Dictionary of English with

over 250,000 entries and definitions for free. Kindle lets you instantly look up the

definition without ever leaving the book – simply select the word with the cursor and

the definition will automatically display at the bottom of the screen.

Search

Wikipedia and the Web
Kindle makes it easy to find what you're looking for. Just

enter a word or phrase and Kindle will search every instance across your Kindle

library, in the Kindle Store, on Wikipedia, or the Web using Google search.




WebKit-Based Browser
Kindle's experimental web browser is based on WebKit to

provide a better web browsing experience. Now it's easier than ever to find the

information you're looking for right from your Kindle. Experimental web browsing is

free.


Notes and Sharing
Bookmarks and Annotations
Add annotations

to text, just like you might write in the margins of a book, with a virtual keyboard

that appears just when you need it. And because it is digital, you can edit, delete,

and export your notes. You can highlight and clip key passages and bookmark pages for

future use. You'll never need to bookmark your last place in the book, because

Kindle remembers for you and always opens to the last page you read.
