Paperwhite - First Impressions
39th anniversary gift of Paperwhite with Amazon's leather cover in fuschia, for my wife, arrived yesterday.
Give it 9 out of 10.
Text looks crisp. More Font choices. Portrait or Landscape modes. Page turns very fast. Displays complex PDF diagrams very well with contrast turned up. Looks great in the dark with some mild shadowing towards the screen's bottom.
Advertising on Home Screen in Cover mode. This disappears when viewed in other modes. Have Home Screen set up in Collections mode. WiFi turned off in Aeroplane mode,
Installation a snap. WiFi sets up quickly. On screen K/B a joy. Screen very responsive to fingers, thumbs or stylus. Downloads from Amazon Cloud in seconds. USB link to PC very quick & easy.
Unit snaps into the back of the Amazon leather cover, available in colours for boys & girls. Magnetic closure. Turns Paperwhite on & off, shows page being read. Easy & light to told. Cover turns back on itself. Would fit easily in cargo pocket, small bag, zip folder, backpack etc.
Overall an excellent product. Will buy another for myself. Highly recommended.
Big user of digital text since STAIRS but still buy some paper stuff.
Amazon, Playstore, Zinio, you name it.
Five Kindles, Sony eReader, iPads, Androids etc.
Yes, will order iPad mini today.
This stuff just keeps getting better.
