October saw Amazon release a brand new Kindle Paperwhite, and it's a delightful device according to our official review. While some people might feel sceptical of buying a dedicated device for ebooks, Amazon would very much like it if you bought one anyway.

The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Is Just a Delight

I’ve been using successive iterations of the Kindle Paperwhite for five years now, and yes, the new one is better than the ones that came before. It’s slightly smaller, and slightly lighter, and even a little bit brighter too. Plus it’s waterproof! Read More >>

Amazon Has an All-New Kindle Paperwhite On the Way

It's been about 11 years since Amazon released the very first Kindle, which was a time when having a dedicated book-gadget made sense. Now we have smartphones that are the size of tablets, and also tablets that are the size of computer screens, which may make an e-reader feel as redundant as a handheld video camera or a Walkman. But Amazon doesn't think that way, and has announced there's an upgraded Kindle Paperwhite on the way. Read More >>

Looks Like the Kindle Voyage Has Reached the End of Its Journey

For a few years, the Voyage was Amazon’s flagship e-reader. While it was never cheap, its 300 PPI resolution and fantastic design often made it a better buy even after Amazon released the first Kindle Oasis in 2016. However, it seems time and the emergence of the second-generation Kindle Oasis have put an end to the Kindle Voyage’s run, because after supplies of Kindle Voyages dried up in the US, UK, and other major Amazon portals, it seems like the Voyage is being discontinued.

This Page-Turning Kindle Contraption Is Straight Out of Rick and Morty

Not since Rick and Morty’s butter-passing robot has there been a more hyper-specific, purpose-built device than perhaps Alex Mikes’ automatic Kindle page turner.

The New Kindle Oasis is the Best Ereader of All Time, But Is It Worth It?

I’m not terribly fussy about how I read. I used an old Kindle Keyboard until a stray pen in my backpack broke its display, and I’ve long happily used a Paperwhite without so much as considering the fancier Kindles Amazon has released since I got it back in 2013. Hell, half the time I’m just reading on the Kindle smartphone app for a few minutes here and there between glances at my email. So the new Kindle Oasis, the company’s most advanced reading gadget yet, is not designed for me. But goddamn, it’s great. Read More >>

Amazon’s Next Echo Sounds Weird

Amazon is building a new version of its artificially intelligent Echo speaker with a screen, according to a Bloomberg report. The device is currently being worked on by the company’s secretive Lab126 research team that was also responsible for some of Amazon’s greatest flops and successes like the Fire Phone, Echo Dot, and Fire tablet.
