The popular eBook reader Amazon Kindle is now in the ninth generation and is one of the bestsellers of the internal hardware alongside the echo speakers. Amazon calls the new Kindle feature "front light", but it is actually a classic background lighting in the form of four built-in LEDs. These make it possible to read books using the E-Reader, even in the dark without restrictions. The 6-inch touch screen will also include a new e-ink technology that offers better contrast and ignores unintended swipe movements.
With four gigabytes of internal memory, the capacity of the new Kindle is tight, but Amazon promises the easy storage of thousands of books. Similarly, the "weeks of battery life" and the ability to play audio books via the integrated Audible app are among the plus points of the new Kindle. The 174-gram eBook reader connects to the Kindle eBook Store via Wi-Fi and synchronizes its own library and reading stations on different devices.
