Azi au început în SUA livrările pentru noul Kindle Paperwhite. Şi au început să iasă şi review-urile. Am dat o cautare in Google si am obtinut rezultate de pe site-urile mari. Poate dupa ce incep livrarile la noi, primesc si eu unul in teste. 🙂
În România, pretul este 700 de lei pentru Kindle Paperwhite wi-fi. Livrările încep pe 8 noiembrie.
În general review-urile pe care le-am găsit sunt pozitive. Poate prea pozitive.
Impresia generală este că, în acest moment, Kindle Paperwhite este cel mai bun ebook reader existent pe piaţă. El depăşeşte Nook Glowlight, datorită ecranului nou. De asemenea, caracteristicile software (time to read, x-ray etc.) îmbunătăţesc foarte multe calitatea cititului pe Kindle Paperwhite.
Mai jos link-urile si concluziile fiecarui review.

[tab]So, do all of these features add up to the best e-reader out there? In a syllable: yep. Amazon was clearly focused on creating the best possible reading experience with the Paperwhite, and it’s delivered. The screen adjustments are great — everything from the evenly distributed front light to the improved contrast.The Kindle’s still far from perfect, though. For starters, it’s simply not as pleasant to hold as the Nook Simple Touches — it ultimately sacrifices comfort for some aesthetic niceties.[engadget][/tab]
[tab]The Paperwhite is an excellent reader, probably the best I’ve used. Between the new display, the improved software and performance, great battery life, and Amazon’s massive book selection, there’s not much here to complain about.[the verge][/tab]
[tab]There’s no doubt that the Paperwhite feature works, and works great. For those that want the best possible reading experience across the board the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite is certainly worth your dollar [slashgear][/tab]
[tab]In the end, though, people buy e-readers to read for long periods of time, and the Paperwhite features a better, crisper screen than does the Nook. While Barnes & Noble may have been first with a lit E-Ink reader, Amazon has improved on the prototype model in the most important place: the display. While I’ve given both glowing (ha!) reviews and can heartily recommend either, the edge here belongs to Amazon, on the strength of the screen alone.[huffington post][/tab]
[tab]Nearly perfect front-lit screen. Improved capacitive touch. Superior contrast, sharpness and texture. Charges over standard USB and lasts forever (6 to 8 weeks). Features like X-Ray and Time to Read make reading funner. Ads? Who cares!
TIRED Ads (if you care). Light blooms at bottom of screen can be distracting. No physical page-turning buttons.[wired][/tab]

[tab]If you’re deciding between the base Kindle Paperwhite and the Nook Simple Touch With GlowLight from scratch, that’s tougher, especially both devices cost the same. The Nook weighs a bit less; it doesn’t serve ads; it comes with an AC adapter, headphone jack, and memory card slot; and it works with the popular ePub ebook format, which Kindles still don’t accept. The Paperwhite is thinner, feels nicer, has a sharper screen with better contrast, and has better lighting—in other words, it’s a better ebook reader. If that’s your priority, it’s tough to go wrong with the Kindle Paperwhite.[pcmag][/tab]
[tab]The Paperwhite is a great ereader, and the superb screen quality, easy-to-use frontlight, and improved capacitive controls make it an easy choice. The only reason to not get it would be if you really love physical buttons, in which case you should probably look to the Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight [gizmodo][/tab]
[tab]It’s faster. The touchscreen is quicker and more responsive (see my video for an example of this). On the Touch, I sometimes tap twice because the screen is slow to register that I’ve touched it. The Paperwhite still doesn’t offer iPad-like quickness, but its response time is a big improvement over the Touch
I love the light but wish that it adjusted automatically depending on the brightness of a room. Failing that, I wish there were brightness controls on the side of the Paperwhite…I miss the physical home button [gigaom]

[tab]…for the moment, the Kindle Paperwhite has jumped to the head of the e-reader pack. It may not be perfect, but it’s definitely the Kindle a lot of people have been waiting for.[cnet][/tab]
