Our First Hands-On Review of the New Kindle Paperwhite

When Amazon rolled out its new Kindle models back on September 6, there was — understandably — so much buzz at the new Kindle Fire HD models that it would have been easy to overlook the “monochrome” ebook reader, the Paperwhite. Well, I’ve been a Paperwhite review unit since Wednesday of this week, and I can assure you that this new Kindle should not be ignored. I’m impressed, and I am *almost willing and ready to say that the Paperwhite is the best pure ebook reader yet released by Amazon or anyone else. (*My one gripe may just be a personal idiosyncrasy of my own, so I am willing to discount and get to it later in this review, and I may even outgrow it.)

You can order a Paperwhite unit now on the Amazon website for shipment in late October, and there are two basic choices: a $119 wifi only unit and another, for $179, that offers a choice of wifi and 3G connectivity. At those prices the Paperwhite comes”with special offers,” but you also have the option of paying an extra $20 for either Paperwhite model “without special offers.”

At 7.8 ounces, or 7.5 ounces for the wifi-only model, the Paperwhite feels great in the hand and is the same weight as the Kindle Touch 3G from 2011 and about an ounce lighter than its predecessor in Amazon’s evolutionary tree, the Kindle Keyboard 3G that was introduced in the summer of 2010 and remains available. The processor is the fastest yet on a dedicated ebook reader, the connectivity via wifi and 3G are great, and with wifi turned off the battery and power management allow for an amazing 8 weeks of battery life with the light on.

That’s all well and good, but where the new Paperwhite really hits a home run is right where we, as readers, would want it to smack the ball: with an unparalleled visual reading experience.

Millions of us may have gotten used to the charcoal-on-gray visuals of previous eInk Kindle displays, and even convinced each other that they’re better for our sleep rhythms than a cup of warm milk before bed. But I’m here to tell you that visual reading experience with the new Paperwhite display is not just a home run, it’s a walk-off grand slam, due to the combination of gorgeous hand-crafted font and font size choices, heightened resolution provided by 212 PPI pixel density compared with 167 PPI on previous eInk Kindles, and a patented new technology that distributes light far more evenly than we generally experience with ambient light and, in the bargain, allows for a vastly improved capacitative touch experience.

That Paperwhite “lighted screen” far surpasses the “light in the corner” experience of the Nook’s Glow units and the “I can’t read this by the pool” experience of the iPad. It renders the display so beautifully in all environments, from bright sunshine to a totally dark room, that nobody will ever have reason to complain about contrast on the Paperwhite. This very simple image of the several current monochrome models side-by-side illustrates the point we are making about contrast far better than words:

 

We’re keeping this initial review relatively brief so that we can focus on other new Kindle features in coming days without wearing out our welcome, but the bottom line is this: if there is a place in your home for a dedicated Kindle ebook reader, the Kindle Paperwhite will probably meet your needs better than any other dedicated ebook reader on the market. We know that millions of our readers have already invested in earlier Kindle models or in the dazzling new Kindle Fire HD models, but given the fact that Amazon has a no-questions-asked 30-day-return policy, it may be worth your while to order the Kindle Paperwhite now so that you can test-drive it in late October and thus be in a position to make an educated decision about whether it belongs on your 2012 holiday gift list, either outgoing or incoming.

*So, what’s my gripe with the Paperwhite? I have to admit that I’m disappointed that there is no audio on the Paperwhite and, therefore, no text-to-speech. I suspect that I’m somewhere in the top 1/10 of 1% when it comes to how much Kindle reading I do in all forms (including manuscripts that authors and publishers send in for prospective Kindle Nation Daily sponsors), and it frankly is a huge help to me to be able to use text-to-speech to expand my reading time to time when I am doing my daily walking or falling asleep at night. I’ll continue to rely on my trusty Kindle DX and my relatively new Kindle Fire HD for text-to-speech, and I will just have to see where that leaves my new Paperwhite on my Kindle lineup. And I should be clear that the fact that I am personally disappointed about the omission of audio on the Paperwhite doesn’t mean I would quarrel with Amazon’s call on this, because I suspect both that the tradeoff allowed Amazon to keep the Paperwhite weight and price down and also that it may enhance adoption, for instance, in secondary school classrooms and libraries.

<%title%>
Text-to-Speech and Lending: Enabled
Here’s the set-up:

In a deep torch lit cavern, beneath the Mormon temple, hundreds of barefoot, white clad youths wait in line to be plunged beneath the water in a bronze tank that rests on the backs of twelve gigantic bronze oxen. Each time they are lowered backwards into the water, a member of the Mormon priesthood evokes the name of a person who is dead.

My Mormon Life is the story of a boy, raised in the Mormon faith, who examines the beliefs of the church and comes to realize that what he is being taught by the church is not consistent with what seems to be the real world. In this process he takes the reader on the grand tour of Mormon beliefs, from baptism of the dead, to polygamy and Mormon underwear, survival food, and the separate policy toward Blacks. One by one the unique beliefs of Mormons are explored by the boy’s active mind, often leading to humorous conclusions. By following these explorations the reader will find the answers they are seeking about the Mormon Church and by the end of this story understand what it means to be a Mormon.

Ultimately the Mormon faith does not hold up to the scrutiny of this young boy’s mind and this leads to powerful questions about the whole process of forcing fanatical religious beliefs on the mind of a child.

The Kindle Chronicles Interview: Fire Fight: Could New Kindle Fire HD Models Ignite Real Attack on iPad’s Share of Tablet Market?

Len Edgerly Interviews James McQuivey,
vice president and principal analyst, Forrester Research

By LEN EDGERLY
Contributing Editor

Let’s try a multiple-choice quiz as we wait for the Kindle Paperwhite to begin shipping this week, followed by the Kindle Fire HD 8.9” in November.

Which of the following will have their business disrupted the most by Amazon’s new generation of Kindles and Fires?

  1. The “Big 6” book publishers
  2. Wal-Mart
  3. Apple
  4. Barnes & Noble
  5. Dunkin’ Donuts

james-mcquiveyIf you chose c) Apple, go to the head of the class, where you will find James McQuivey in his usual chair, making insightful comments about the latest in digital disruption.
McQuivey (photo at right), who is a frequent guest on The Kindle Chronicles podcast, has been analyzing digital media for more than a decade. In our conversation on September 24th, he began by suggesting that the new Amazon devices are designed to attack in multiple directions at once.

For publishers, the E Ink Kindles and Kindle Fires further entrench Amazon in the publishing business. This is not a game-changing development, McQuivey suggested, but more a continued building of the company’s strength in the book industry.
Instead, it is Apple that is being disrupted by Amazon’s latest offerings, especially the almost-iPad-sized Kindle Fire HD 8.9”. But McQuivey does not expect Apple to run scared.

“They have a better device,” he stated. “They also have a much more expensive device, so Amazon knows that they at least can start picking some of the lower fruit on that tablet tree.”

“That is going to be disruptive,” he continued, “mostly because now Apple has to stop pretending that there’s only one size of tablet in the world, and that price points can be whatever Apple decides they should be.”

This might remind Cupertino of the first time a credible challenge arose to the iPod from SanDisk and others, whose competing devices never amounted to anything, but did force big changes in the iPod lineup. That challenge is why there are now multiple iPod models, at better prices, and the competitive pressure eventually led to creation of the iPod Touch and even the iPhone, in McQuivey’s view.

“Amazon is going to push Apple out of just thinking of themselves as a tablet provider,” he said. “The biggest challenge to Apple is that Apple is now left holding only its devices—they don’t have a more comprehensive customer relationship to try to attach, which of course is what Amazon has.”

Amazon wants to sell us Dockers—I’ve bought two pair in the past month—a good book to read, some video games, and just about anything else you can imagine buying. A new toilet seat, perhaps, or, in McQuivey’s case, the Italian cocoa powder that he had ordered the morning I spoke with him.

“That’s where they’re going to make their money in the long run, and Apple just doesn’t have that,” McQuivey said. “Apple doesn’t need it, as long as no one else is making competitively priced devices at least half as good as theirs.”

“Well that day just came,” he added, referring to the new Kindle Fire HD.

So in this round of moves by Seattle, Apple is being disrupted more than the publishing world. One change that is taking place in publishing, though, and not just because of the new Kindles, is a diminished role for Apple’s iBooks platform.

McQuivey said the Department of Justice action against Apple and five publishers charged with eBook price-fixing put an end to “Apple’s hope for ever becoming an alternative refuge for publishers to run to” and “certainly made it clear that Apple is not going to be a contender in the publishing world—at least not given current circumstances, devices and customer relationships.”

If you chose b) Wal-Mart as the player most disrupted by Amazon, you might be in line for a VP of Strategy position in Bentonville, Arkansas. That’s because Wally World finally figured out that Amazon is taking direct aim at its business, which led to last week’s announcement that Kindles and Fires will no longer be sold in Wal-Mart stores.

McQuivey expects that this decision will benefit Barnes & Noble, whose new Nooks will still be available at Wal-Mart.

“Wal-Mart still needs to present a credible list of devices,” he said, “and that’s going to have to include a lineup of nice Nooks.”

We have now covered all the possible answers to the quiz, except for one.
If you chose f) Dunkin’ Donuts, I like your style, and I’ll meet you at the Fresh Pond store for a glazed and a coffee, black, so we can discuss your theory further!

Destroyed by her role in the woman’s death, Lindsey blames her father’s controlling ways for what she has become, and runs from her career and life. Years later – the past becomes the present . . . Her father has cancer, and Lindsey is forced to leave her career with the Washington branch of the FBI. She finds herself facing the responsibility of running her father’s law firm with the reluctant help of hotshot attorney Mark Reeves, a man who sparks her temper while also managing to tempt her heart, while setting her body on fire! With his help she finds herself fighting the emotional battles of the past, tempted to trust both him and her instincts. Now, faced with a case inherited from her father so similar to her career-ending one, she now must decide if her instincts will lead her down the path to saving an innocent man or setting free another killer. But while she fights her own battles, someone watches, wanting from the past what he had failed to get the first time . . . Lindsey.

4.3 stars - 6 reviews
Currently FREE for Amazon Prime Members
Text-to-Speech and Lending: Enabled
Here's the set-up:
THE SON picks up the story of THE SURROGATE twenty years later. The agency for surrogate mothers has been exposed as the front of a ruthless cult, bent on engineering the Second Coming. Hannah Manning, having given birth to the child, has chosen to keep him as her own and has fled the country. In Mexico, where she and her husband, a former priest, finally settle, she has succeeded in bringing up the child in anonymity. But she can’t protect him from a deadly mudslide in the Sierra Gorda mountains, where a miraculous occurrence inadvertently exposes him to the world, even as it reveals the strange circumstances of his birth.

Confused, but resolute, the youth resolves to get to the truth of his origins and undertakes a perilous search that pits him against a mysterious female photographer, a bed-ridden zealot in the grip of demonical visions and arrogant church authorities, not to mention the halt and the lame who believe he has healing powers. A compelling novel of a young man coming of age in a world of hype and superstition, THE SON asks the eternal question, “Who am I?” and comes up with a provocative answer that implicates us all.
One Reviewer Notes:
The adventure continues. THE SON is highly entertaining and thought provoking. It nicely balances what is possible and what is plausible in our crazy world.

Linell Jeppsen’s Suspenseful Thriller Detour to Dusk is Our eBook of the Day at just $2.99, or Currently Free Via the Kindle Lending Library, with 4.6 Stars on 27 Reviews, and Here’s a Free Sample

A ragged band of vampires are cutting a bloody path of destruction from Alaska to Washington State! As frost turns the leaves gold and paints the high mountain treetops silver, hundreds of hunters arrive in Swan Valley for their annual deer hunt. What they don’t know is an outcast band of vampires have arrived, as well.

Raphael Goldhawk, king of the high vampire council, has decreed the taking of human life unlawful. Raul Stannard, an ancient enemy of the half-human king, is determined to overthrow the council, even if it means the exposure and eventual annihilation of the vampire race.

Four people, a Ferry County forest ranger (Roger Atley), an Indian spirit-walker (Harley Truefeather), and a young married couple (Brian and Holly Jensen), are about to be caught up in an ancient power struggle, and in a love affair as old as time itself.

This novel combines ancient history with modern times, in an epic show-down between good and evil, love and hate. Grab your camping gear and hold on tight!

From the reviewers:

I love the way the author tells the stories of all the sets of characters and then intertwines them together.  – jewel fan  |  8 reviewers made a similar statement

I recommend it to anyone who is a fan of vampires and even more to those who are not because they will enjoy reading about the adventures of these creatures.  – MS Writer  |  5 reviewers made a similar statement

It is a quick read and the rotation among the various stories kept the action and suspense moving nicely.  – Todd A. Fonseca  |  6 reviewers made a similar statement

THE HUNT is expertly written, filled with beautifully descriptive passages. It now lives in my mind. I know these people. They are not just characters on a page; they are fleshed out, real just like you and me. It is not the usual ‘vampire’ story.  Ellen Ekey-Hines

I was caught up in this strange and wonderful story immediately, high in the forests of northeastern Washington State, with mysterious deaths at a remote campground. I couldn’t put it down. Equal parts history, magic and suspense, THE HUNT is a novel of surprising scope.  –  Lori Little

Once you start this fast paced novel, you won’t want to let it rest. So, keep the monitors on and the Kindles fired-up. To lose power at the wrong time could have devastating self-inflicted effects on modern technology and your bank account.  –  Jeff Dawson

Linell Jeppsen started writing full-time about two years ago. Since then she won third prize in a contest sponsored by Phyllis Scott publishing, with her short story, THE GAG GIFT.

Her post-apocalyptic novel, Story Time was nominated as the best read of 2011 by the Paranormal Romance Guild. It is now in the top 100 (science fiction) in the Kindle store.

Here is the blurb for Story Time!

In the not too distant future a young woman bears witness to the end of her world.

Earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions rock the planet, reducing cities to smoking rubble, burying entire islands and coastlines beneath cataclysmic waves.

Religious fervor and human evil erupt and entwine, becoming a maelstrom of madness in the days after, bringing with it the horror of apocalyptic war.

As a population in the depths of despair struggles to overcome insurmountable odds, can a single glimmer of hope flare into a beacon for the survivors?

This is her tale…the world is ours…and now, it’s STORY TIME.

And, coming soon…Onio!  Here’s the set-up for it:

In this modern world of science and high technology, in secret places deep under the ground and in the forest primeval, legends still walk the earth and what we think of as myth and fairy tale are all too real.

Driving home late one night, Melody Carver, bereft and grieving after the death of her mother, sees a strange creature standing on the lonely road. This being will change her world-view forever, and open her eyes to a reality beyond her imagination.

Melody’s chance encounter on that dark and snowy road will mark the beginning of a journey of discovery and wonder that will bring two worlds together in hope and despair.

Can one person bridge the gap between the ancient and the modern, the mundane and the magical?

An urban fantasy filled with adventure, romance, war, heartbreak and triumph!
ONIO! Unlike anything, you have ever read before!
