Engadget Review

The new Paperwhite doesn't represent a huge change over last year's version, but even so, a few tweaks have made a great reader even better.

Pros
  • Improved front light
  • Faster processor
  • Goodreads integration coming soon
Cons
  • Largely unchanged from last year
  • Not all software available at launch
  • Starting price includes ads
