Speaking of the screen, Amazon is touting that the Voyage’s 300dpi display is the best ever on an E Ink Kindle. They’re not lying: this is simply the best E Ink display I’ve ever seen. It’s certainly better than the gray-brown pages of the secondhand paperback you’re reading, and unless you’re really into $75 high-gloss coffee table books, it’s probably better looking than just about everything in your bookshelf. The Paperwhite was already fantastic both in terms of contrast and resolution, but if I looked closely enough, I could see ragged little edges on characters. On the Voyage, I can’t. It’s just smooth. Amazon has also improved the grayscaling to the point where graphics aren’t visibly dithered; clearly, as always, this device is primarily intended for text, but images (in the Kindle Store, for instance) won’t trigger your gag reflex.
Kindle Fire HD Kids Edition – $149.00
Includes a year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited—a subscription service that includes over 5,000 kid-friendly books, movies, TV shows, educational apps, and games.
Nate at The Digital Reader tells us how:
The Kindle has had the option to let users take a screenshot since the day the first unit shipped in November 2007. The trick to enable this feature varies from one model to the next, so I took a few minutes to list them all.
This Kindle Fire HD Kids is definitely on my list for the g-kids’ Christmas! It’s practically indestructible, but there’s a 2-year guarantee on the tablet – just in case. Then there’s also a free year of Kindle FreeTime giving them access to a huge collection of kid-friendly books, apps, games, movies and tv shows.
And, at $149 it’s a great deal!
Just in time for Christmas, Amazon introduces the Kindle Voyager.
