Amazon introduced the new Kindle with enhanced capabilities. The 10.2-inch "reader" of Kindle Scribe, which is available on the E Ink display, has a style set and has received new software; the model is already available for pre-order in the United States at $339.99.
According to Vice-President Amazon on products and marketing, Kevin Keith, the model was the first option with a 300 ppi resolution, with a warm-up lighting. You can buy the "baseline" style of Basic Pen or Premium Pen for $30 more. The more expensive style has a programmable button and a special sensor called "struction rubber." Both styles use Wacom EMR technology and do not need to be charged.
The model has an integrated ability to leave notes or simply draw in the fields -- all the records and drawings will be stored in the memory of the device. The PDF is maintained, saved web pages can be viewed. Amazon has even agreed with Microsoft to integrate into Word a special button that allows the document to be exported directly to Kindle. As long as the notes and drawings cannot be seen in exports to other devices, but the companies have stated that they are already working on it.
Scribe's asymmetric design is similar to Kindle Oasis. The size of the new model is 5.8 mm, the weight is 430 g. Although the device is slightly easier and thinner than the last iPad Air, Apple's tablet has a much richer functionality. However, the devices initially have different purposes, and the Scribe battery charge is sufficient for weeks of operation. In addition, Amazon reported that they decided not to equip their device with any version of a fully functional LO like Android, otherwise Kindle would not be what they are now, mostly reading devices without many distractions.
Autonomous work is largely dependent on the activity of the stylus. According to Amazon, Scribe will work 12 weeks per 30 minutes per day or three weeks per day, using half an hour of style per day, as in this case the image on the screen has to be updated much more frequently.
The company states that users will be able to make notes not only in existing documents and books, but also create notebooks, sketches, task lists and other graphic content. Amazon has long stated that the ultimate goal is to turn future Kindle into a complete equivalent of real paper, with which it is convenient and pleasant to interact.
