Following on from today’s launch of the new Amazon Kindle Paperwhite in the US. Amazon has also launched a new video explaining a little more about their new Kindle Paperwhite e-book reader and the technology they have included within the device.
Amazon’s team of engineers who have worked on the new Paperwhite device, explain the technology that makes the Kindle Paperwhite display sharper and brighter than its rival e-book readers, yet still retains a useable battery life.
Amzon’s Rob Zenher, senior manager for display hardware, explains: “People have tried to do frontlighting on displays for years,”-“We spent a lot of time looking at how many LEDs to put in, how hard to drive them, how bright we could get it without impacting the battery life,”
To re-cap the Kindle Paperwhite is equipped with a 6 inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels, and its battery provides an 8 week life with 30 minutes of use per day.
