Amazon Kindle Paperwhite unboxing and review India 2016
Hi friends, This is about the “All-New Amazon Kindle Paperwhite” ebook reader. I know you are excited about reading this. I was also really excited when I ordered my Amazon Kindle Paperwhite. So, here we go. Let’s do the unboxing of the package just arrived and then review the Kindle Paperwhite with technical specification.
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite arrived in a safe packaging with the in-transit caution on its battery inside :
I also want to tell you that many times you will notice that whenever we are opening a packaging it’s a lot of frustration about opening the pack, but in the Kindle packaging its way easy you just have to tear a paper tab and that’s it. We can read on the box its written “FRUSTRATION FREE PACKAGING”.
When we open the box the first thing we come across is the Kindle Paperwhite itself.
The kindle Paperwhite doesn’t come with a charging adapter like phones and tablets and it only comes with a USB cable so you have to connect it to the computer or you can buy an adapter separately.
It charges fully in 4 hours and a fully charged battery can last up to six weeks based on half hour of use per day and light setting at 10 AND the wireless has to be off.
Ah, so many conditions, but sorry we can’t do anything about that for the love of the Kindle.
When we take a first look at the Kindle we can see that there is an image of the Kindle and the USB port and power switch. There are instructions written in many languages.
There is a button for on and off and a USB charging port at the bottom.
The kindle Paperwhite is made up of Carta e-paper technology and it also has built-in light.
The basic Kindle doesn’t have the built in light technology. It has a resolution of 300 ppi, it weighs 205 g but the wifi + 3G weighs 217 g so it means that it is light. If they really want to make the Kindle like a book they have to make it light.
