Same as TESCO but with more warranty.

The most advanced Kindle yet, Kindle Paperwhite features new display technology, a faster processor, more responsive touch controls, an enhanced light and new features like Kindle PageFlip, Smart Lookup and Vocabulary Builder.

Key Features:

Kindle Paperwhite features a high resolution screen with a higher contrast and better reflectivity for whiter whites, blacker blacks, delivering a more enjoyable reading experience.

Paperwhite features an innovative built-in light to deliver a brighter, evenly-lit display. It guides light from above towards the display instead of projecting it towards the users eyes like with a traditional backlit display, reducing the chance of screen fatigue. It also illuminates the screen instead of the entire room, so you can read in the dark without disturbing others.

A faster processor allows for faster page turns giving you a seamless reading experience.

An improved touch grid makes Kindle Paperwhite more responsive than ever.

Designed to look and read like real paper, Kindle’s E-Ink screen features a matte screen and no backlighting, preventing glare so you can read just as easily at the beach as you would in your living room.

Kindle Paperwhite benefits from an incredibly long battery life. You’ll be able to go for up to two months without needing to recharge. The included USB cable makes it simple to recharge too- simply plug into any chargeable USB port or plug adapter to reinvigorate your Kindle’s battery.

Aside from the power button, Kindle Paperwhite is controlled entirely by using the 2-point multi-touch screen. This responsive touch screen makes navigation quick and simple. Tap either side of the page to turn forwards or backwards, touch to choose the book or option you want and search for books using the on screen keyboard.

With over 1.5 million books, newspapers and magazines available to download from the Kindle store, you won’t be short of reading options. That includes more than a million free books, including classics like Pride & Prejudice and Treasure Island and over 300,000 titles that are exclusive to Kindle.

You can store up to 1,100 books on a Kindle Paperwhite, so you can move from one book to the next with ease. It’ll also help substantially reduce luggage weight for keen holiday readers!

Paperwhite can download books through your computer and the supplied USB cable, or directly onto your device using Wi-Fi, either at home or through Wi-Fi hotspots. Downloads are quick and easy, with books available to read in as little as 60 seconds.

Choose font size, typeface, line spacing and the number of words per line. Kindle is designed to let you customise your reading experience to the way that’s most comfortable to you. It also supports non-Latin characters, such as Cyrillic, Japanese, Chinese and Korean characters, so you can read books in the translation that’s right for you.

Kindle PageFlip lets you skim through books, page by page, scan by chapter or skip to the end without losing your place.

Kindle makes it easy to look things up, thanks to the new Smart Lookup feature. Smart Lookup integrates a full dictionary with X-Ray and Wikipedia, giving you more information, just a tap away. Words looked up on Kindle Paperwhite are automatically added to Vocabulary Builder, where you can quiz yourself with flashcards.

Kindle makes it easy to bookmark and annotate text, as well as clip and highlight passages. And because these markings are digital, they can easily be deleted or exported to a computer. You can even post them directly to Twitter or Facebook without leaving the page.

Children’s books and comics also work on Kindle. Kindle Text Pop-Up makes for a fun reading experience for kids, while Kindle Panel View allows you to see a comic’s story panel by panel.

Kindle books match pages with their print equivalent so you can always find the ‘real’ page number, making it easy to reference in class or with a friend.

Hallelujah Jl has price matched a competitor, we can all live in peace.
Do we seriously need the 'Jl offers x years warranty' in every single Jl deal? We got it after the first million times.

Took the chance on this, but I am not sure if they are selling the latest version or if they have not updated the details on the webpage.

The good news is that this despite the price being displayed as £89 it went through as £79...Result

This is only 2GB - Tesco's is 4GB.

Wonder should I cancel my Tesco order.

The JL page shows a weight of 206g which is consistent with the latest version of the paperwhite (old version is 213g)

Yes cancel tesco buy from jh

OOS now

Ordered mine yesterday picked it up today and its a 2014 edition 4gb, not 2gb so happy bunny !!

I have bought 2 of these today. One at £89 in tesco its a really small box and it does say 2014 and 4gb on the box. The other one is from John Lewis and was £79 with an extra year warranty - it is in a slightly larger box with a slope on one end and it does say in tiny print on the back 2014 - but no mention on the box if it is 4gb. I only want to keep one and would want the 4 gb version with the longer warranty - how can i be sure without opening it?? Any help is much appreciated!

mine from John Lewis had the slopey box and its definitely the 4GB version

Mine says 4gb on the back of the box, about half way down, next to the wifi symbol.......

Thank you both. The small box from Tesco does say it half way down the back next to the wifi symbol but the JL one does not have the same box and defo does not say whether it is 2gb or 4gb - I asked in store but they didn't even know there were 2 versions! i hope it is the 2014 4gb version as it is great value at £79 inc 2 year warranty.

Sold out.

Ordered one of these. Best price I've seen. Hopefully it will be well received.

Out of stock and now back in stock but price is up to £89
