The rechargeable case, codenamed “Soda,” will concede a new Kindle, dubbed “Whiskey,” to be even thinner than prior iterations, while adding extended battery life. The solar-powered box is codenamed “Sunkiss,” though it expected won’t be accessible in a evident future, a news claims.
Technically, there have been 9 Kindles so far, trimming from a strange Kindle to a many new Kindle Paperwhite 2015, though a arriving version seems to be a partial of a “8th generation” of Kindle products.
We rated a 2014 Kindle Voyage as a best Kindle ebook reader yet, and as a best ebook reader we can buy. The Kindle Paperwhite 2015 came second to it, so hopefully Amazon can kick expectations with a newest generation.
Amazon launched a initial Kindle in 2007, so either you’re entrance from a initial edition, or from a many new one, it will be lovely to see what a latest era will offer.
Recently, owners of some comparison Amazon Kindle models were compulsory to install an refurbish by Mar 22, differently they would be compulsory to implement it manually. Missing a implement will leave we incompetent to download Kindle books from a Cloud, entrance a Kindle store, or use other service.
If we missed it, check out this draft in sequence to to find what chronicle we need to manually refurbish to — Kindles from 2013 and leading do not need to accept an update.
It’s misleading if a eighth-generation Kindle will launch subsequent week, or if Amazon will usually announce a device, as Bezos pronounced usually that it was “almost ready.”
