Leaked: Amazon Kindle Touch With Paperwhite Offers Backlit Display, Redesign

kindle-touch-paperwhiteWe’ve already said our goodbyes to this generation’s Kindle Touch; now it’s time for something new, something better. Meet the new Kindle Touch with Paperwhite, Amazon’s answer to the Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight.

Amazon’s clever turn of phrase quite obviously refers to the Kindle’s new improved display technology, which promises “higher contrast, high resolution and integrated lighting.” All that with the now-standard two months of battery life. Many will be sold at the mere mention of a Kindle with backlight, and this looks to cater to all those clamoring for such a device from the big online retailer.

In addition to the new screen, the device appears completely refreshed. Gone is the button below the display, and the color has been given a more menacing shade of dark gray.

We’re quickly getting an unofficial preamble to Amazon’s entire event planned for Sept. 6. What else does the company have planned? A few new Kindle Fires, perhaps, and maybe even a smartphone. TechnoBuffalo will be there to find out as they’re announced.
