Kindle Paperwhite

by Su Yang

The Kindle is an e-reader: a device that allows people to download and read books, similar to a tablet. The Kindle Paperwhite is a special version of the Kindle that features a higher resolution screen.

Personally, I’m a huge fan of the Paperwhite because of how lightweight it is; having a Kindle allows me to read on trips without having to lug around heavy books. The software of the product is also designed to allow users to customize the interface, which supports light and dark modes, different font sizes, different brightness levels, and an abundance of other features. The backlit screen makes it possible to read without a light, which is particularly useful on planes and at night before bed.

The previous review applauds Amazon’s design choices for the screen and mentions how they addressed the problem of eye strain that comes with phones and normal tablets.

Previous Review:
I’ve always appreciated the design of the Amazon Kindle’s interface. Though it is an electronic device, Amazon designed the screen so that it looks more like a page in book than a display screen on a device. It helps alleviate some of the eye strain that comes from using devices like phones or iPads for long periods of time, allowing the user to read for hours on end. It’s not something I would’ve considered if I had designed the product, but is a well-thought-out touch.
