Kindle Voyage, the most advanced Kindle from Amazon
Kindle Voyage: The Amazon Kindle is a series of e-book readers designed and marketed by Amazon.com. Kindle readers enable users to shop for, download, browse, and read any digital media via wireless networking. The hardware platform, developed by Amazon.com subsidiary Lab126, comprises a range of devices, including dedicated e-readers with E Ink electronic paper displays, and Android-based tablets with color LCD screens.
Amazon released the first generation Kindle on November 19, 2007, for US$399. The device sold out in five and a half hours. It remained out of stock for five months until late April 2008.
Amazon remains the undisputed leader in the e-reader category. Actually, according to many studies, about 50% of sales for all e-book readers worldwide are Kindles.
The Kindle Voyage has a 6-inch, 300 PPI display with adaptive LEDs to illuminate the screen depending on the environment. It has thus the highest resolution available in e-readers.
The new device has 4GB of storage (3GB usable). It features a new design of flush glass screen and rear power button, similar to the Kindle Fire HDX, the third generation of Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablet line.
The Voyage uses a new method of turning pages, called PagePress. There are sensors on either side of the screen and if pressed it turns the page. PagePress can be disabled, however touchscreen page turns cannot be turned off since the touchscreen is the UI.
The Kindle Voyage sold by Amazon China has a special limited edition cased in a gift box with add-ons of a power adapter, a leather protective cover and a 100-yuan gift card.
Let’s remind you that Samsung has partnered with Amazon for the Kindle for Samsung app, which permits Samsung Galaxy users using Android 4.0 or higher to use Amazon’s catalog. It also add a free book service, Samsung Book Deals, that allow users of the app to choose one free e-book monthly from a selection provided by Amazon.
