Chapter in this post:
The new Kindle Paperwhite of the 10th generation will be released on November 7, 2018. In addition to the increased memory of either 8 GB or 32 GB, the thinnest e-book reader from Amazon to date has an IPX8 protection rating and is therefore completely waterproof. Reading by the pool or by the lake is also possible because the 300 ppi display has no mirror effects - "read like on real paper" should according to the product description on Amazon to be possible. Further information, technical details and an eReader comparison to the new Kindle Paperwhite 10th Generation 2018 can be found below.
The new eReader from Amazon is the thinnest and lightest of its kind to date. This makes it particularly interesting for travelers; as well as the water resistance. Here I have summarized the most important technical data of the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 2018 so that you can see at a glance what characterizes the tenth gen of the reader:
On the product page you have a few options to choose the right model for you. The selected device with WLAN connection option and the preferred storage option will be cheaper if you select "With special offers". This means that ads for titles that have not yet been purchased but are on sale will appear on the lock screen of the 10th Generation Kindle Paperwhite. The savings potential is 20 euros compared to the models without advertising.
So that you can compare all versions at a glance, I have put together a corresponding table for you.
|8 GB WiFi only||32 GB WiFi only||WiFi + free 4G with 32 GB|
|Peculiarity||Cheapest model||Lots of storage for books and audio books||Free cellular for mobile content download|
|Available with display of special offers?||ja||ja||no|
|Price with special offers||119,99 EUR||149,99 EUR||-|
|Price without the promotional offers||139,99 EUR||169,99 EUR||229,99 EUR|
The product page of the Kindle Paperwhite 10th Generation 2018 says only this much on the subject:
WiFi + free 4G LTE uses the same radio signals as cell phones, but with no monthly fees or obligations - Amazon pays to connect via 4G LTE. If you want to use the wireless connection for other services, such as sending personal documents, additional charges may apply.
I ordered the Kindle Paperwhite 2018 because my Kindle Paperwhite from 2013 has gotten so slow that I can still read with it, but can no longer search for new books in the store without having to wait 4-5 seconds with each click . Otherwise he becomes a bit sluggish, which just got on my mind while reading in the evening that the new model came to my mind.
You can read a review with experiences from your own Kindle Paperwhite 2018 test here in a few weeks Blog expect;) Since I will not consume audio books with it, but only "words", the 8 GB RAM of the cheapest model is easily enough. The only problem that is currently still there are these overpriced cases from Amazon, which are the only ones available: Look.
It will probably take a few more weeks until other providers have something available here. With new iPhones it's always the other way around: First there are the cases and then the new iPhone: D
The Kindle Paperwhite 10th Generation 2018 seems to be a nice little device that can be used to read books for a long time on a single charge and also listen to audiobooks via Bluetooth. The device is waterproof and therefore only offers one (surely lockable) USB port for charging and no jack port or the like. The eReader, which you can currently pre-order and use from November 7, 2018, is suitable for at home and on the go. You will receive a report on the test with my experiences after I have used the device for some time;)
