It does not matter if a tablet has an LCD, LED, or OLED screen, it is not healthy to be staring at it for a long period of time. Therefore a tablet does not make for a good eReader. This is why there are e-ink eReaders. Having said that, if you want your kids to read more without hurting their vision in long run, perhaps, the new Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Kids may be worthy of consideration.
Outfitted with a 6.8-inch, 300 PPI glare-free display that looks like real paper – even in sunlight, the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Kids comes with a year of Amazon Kids+ that offers access to thousands of books, including popular children titles like Keeper of Lost Cities, Artemis Fowl, Harry Potter and more.
Built from the ground up for kids ages 7 and up, this purpose-built for reading books device has no distractions as a tablet does and it is the first-ever waterproof Kindle for kids. The eReader further boasts an adjustable warm light, a compact design, and up to 10 weeks of battery life.
The all-new Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Kids is available to order now for US$159.99 with delivery slated to happen on October 27.
On related news… Amazon has also announced the all-new Kindle Paperwhite as well as the first-ever Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition. The new built-for-reading tablets promised 20% fast page turns and an even smoother experience, enabled by the all-new hardware and redesigned interface.
The next-generation Kindle Paperwhite is outfitted with a larger 6.8-inch glare-free display and features adjustable warm light, 8 GB of storage, and up to 10 weeks of battery week life with USB-C charging.
The first-ever Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition, on the other hand, further touts an auto-adjusting light sensor, a whopping 32 GB storage, and the first time ever, wireless charging.
