Amazon 发布 New Kindle Paperwhite

September 5, 2013

Amazon 发布了新的Kindle Paperwhite , 带广告版(With Special Offers)119美元,不带广告(Without Special Offers)的是139美元。

从硬件上,使用了更好的显示屏,分辨率(resolution)达到212ppi,使用更快的处理器,快了25%,更快的反应时间,更耐用的电池。从系统软件上,增加了一些新的功能,其中还有两个coming soon的。现在在 Amazon 的官网上可以下单,据说是这个月(9月)底可以发货。当然,这个不包括中国,中国Amazon还没有更新。

总的来说,性价比挺好,不过不够惊喜。现在老版的Kindle paperwhite 是69美元(约422RMB),中国Amazon价格是849元。如果新版的在国内上市,老版的降价的话,我可以考虑买一个玩玩,500块钱左右是我的预期价位。相比国内的其他电纸书,Kindle Paperwhite还是很有竞争力的。之前买过一个盛大的电纸书,哎,不说了,~~
