Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (2018) – Making an excellent device almost perfect

Stuff has been recommending Amazon’s range of Kindles to anyone who would listen for years. Sometimes even to people who won’t listen, because… well, they won’t bloody listen. And the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite is the e-reader that we’ve probably recommended most, thanks to its combination of pricing, features, and that excellent side-lit screen. But there have been a f...[Read More]

Amazon debuts a new, waterproof Kindle Paperwhite

It took forever for Amazon to launch a waterproof Kindle and when they eventually gave us one, the liquid-resistance was reserved for their top-of-the-line (and rather expensive) Oasis. Now reading in the bath is going to be coming to the masses, as Amazon has announced an updated Kindle Paperwhite with waterproofing. Amazon’s new device was announced earlier today, bringing Amazon’s w...[Read More]

Clash of the Kindles: which one should you buy?

E-readers used to be the simple, beans-on-toast comfort food of the gadget world. That’s all changed. Amazon makes a whopping four different Kindles, all with proper e-reader screens you can gaze at for hours without getting a headache. They can all store thousands of books, last for weeks off a charge and even the cheapest Kindle has a touchscreen these days. Look at the range and you can be left...[Read More]

Amazon has finally gone and made a waterproof Kindle: Meet the upgraded Oasis

Ask the Stuff team which piece of tech we are completely unable to live without and the answer in almost every case is the Amazon Kindle. It doesn’t matter whether it’s the old stalwart with the physical buttons and WiFi only (we still have one of those), the newer Paperwhite models, the Voyage, or the high-end Oasis, they’re all well loved. But we might be tempted away from our ...[Read More]

Although bookstores are making a comeback, Amazon’s reading device is a thing of beauty

Last week Amazon, the online bookstore that put so many other bookstores out of business, opened its first store in New York. Called Amazon Books, it’s the ecommerce giant’s second store, after it opened a bricks-and-mortar store in its hometown Seattle in 2015. As curious and ironic as it is, it’s a good thing. The world can never have too many bookstores, which are a bastion of liter...[Read More]

Amazon’s electronic reading device is a thing of beauty and wonder

Last week Amazon, the online bookstore that put so many other bookstores out of business, opened its first store in New York. Called Amazon Books, it’s the ecommerce giant’s second store, after it opened a bricks-and-mortar store in its hometown Seattle in 2015. As curious and ironic as it is, it’s a good thing. The world can never have too many bookstores, which are a bastion of liter...[Read More]

Kindle Oasis won’t leave you high and dry, goes months between charges

If the thing you look forward to most on your holidays is reading by the pool, Amazon’s got the eBook reader for you. The Kindle Oasis is a completely new addition to the range, with a new look and a better screen than ever. Why Oasis, though? We’re guessing it’s because if Amazon made it any thinner, it would disappear like a mirage. Seriously, this thing is 30% thinner and 20% lighter than any o...[Read More]

An early reveal – Amazon’s Kindle Oasis has leaked

Is it real or is it fake? That’s the question that we have to ask about this apparent leak of Amazon’s upcoming Kindle update. It seems that a listing for the device, known as the Kindle Oasis, was prematurely published on China’s Tmall before being yanked. There’s always someone on the internet waiting to catalogue mishaps though (take note, kids), and we’ve got all ...[Read More]

Amazon’s new Kindle could be even thinner, with a rechargeable battery case

If you’re an Amazon Kindle Paperwhite owner then you probably feel like you’ll never need to fork out for an other ereader again. It’s an excellent choice, after all. Amazon wants to change your mind however, and will be revealing its new Kindle next week. But what could it do to tempt you to drop some cash down again? Well, The Wall Street Journal reports that the upcoming Kindle will be thinner ...[Read More]

Light Start – A new Kindle, Oculus delays, BBM Freedom, and Killing Joke

There’s a new Kindle incoming, with an announcement next week Reading isn’t dead. It’s just sleeping. Actually, you’re reading this, aren’t you? Unless you’re absorbing these words by some sort of osmosis, in which case: What’s your secret?! For those still using mere ocular tissue to enable actual telepathy (think about it), Amazon have got a new Kindle f...[Read More]

Kindle Voyage aims for premium e-reading bliss, plus the entry-level Kindle gets touch

In addition to a bevy of new and updated tablets, Amazon this morning revealed a pair of new Kindle e-readers – including the Kindle Voyage, a new high-end model that sounds truly exquisite. Why take a trip with the Voyage? The new 300ppi high-resolution display is certainly a standout feature, plus the micro-etched glass screen purports to both remove glare and feel like real paper. Also ne...[Read More]

Amazon is testing a “Kindle Unlimited” book subscription service

Amazon appears to be in the process of testing a monthly subscription service offering unfettered access to audiobooks. Think Spotify or Netflix, but for literature rather than music or movies. Dubbed Kindle Unlimited, the existence of the service was revealed via some test pages spotted by users of the Kindle message board. Many of the pages have been taken down but remain in Google’s cache, and ...[Read More]
