Customise to Your Language
Kindle Paperwhite can be used in English, French, German, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, Japanese, and Simplified Chinese. You can easily select the language that you are most comfortable with, and enjoy instant dictionary lookups in any of these languages.
Read Books in Other Languages
Kindle Paperwhite supports the display of non-Latin characters, so you can read books and documents in your favourite language, including enhanced support for Japanese and Chinese (Simplified and Traditional). Kindle Paperwhite also displays Korean, Cyrillic, Latin, and Greek scripts, and provides free access to several international dictionaries.
Follow Along with Page Numbers
We match the pages of a Kindle book to the text in a print book to identify the corresponding page number. Easily reference and cite passages or read alongside others in a book club or class.
Kindle Paperwhite's experimental web browser is based on WebKit. It's easy to find the information you're looking for right from your Kindle Paperwhite. The experimental web browser enables you to connect to the Kindle Store, access Wikipedia, and browse other websites over a Wi-Fi connection.
Never Lose a Book
We automatically back up your entire Kindle library free in the cloud so there's never a worry about losing your books. Re-download wirelessly anytime for free.
Carry and Read Personal Documents
Email documents — including Word, PDF and more —directly to your Kindle and read them in Kindle format. You can also send documents to Kindle Paperwhite using Send to Kindle.
Read Children’s Books and Comics
Kindle Paperwhite supports children's books with Kindle Text Pop-Up, and comic books with Kindle Panel View which allows you to read a comic book panel by panel.
Organise Your Library
Organize your Kindle library into customised collections, or categories, to easily access any book you are looking for. You can add an item to multiple collections to make organising and finding titles even easier.
