In the first purchasers or even professional testers to quickly make wide disillusionment.

59 € cost of the new Kindle in Germany, 10 Euro more than the same name Vormodell (the better distinction sake is called “Kindle 5″ and Kindle 4 “after the model generation, Amazon uses these terms are not). There are “special”, a euphemism for advertising on Sleep-screen and in the bottom of the main menu at this price. Within eBooks Readers will fear no advertising insertions. Without advertising 79 EUR have to be paid, you can also once set the ad-supported model and subsequently “ransom” (for 20 Euro)

The criticisms of around 40 Kindle. -5-reviewers are almost always the same. The Kindle 5 is slightly thicker and heavier than the Kindle 4, together with the slanted back and a new casing material abuts the exterior on an ambivalent response. The most criticism but draws the display at: The built-up E-Ink Pearl screen with a resolution of only 800x600px we know from three to four years old readers, it is visible contrast weaker and fuzzier than the screens of current eBook Reader. Be enhanced the contrast differences or by the lack of lighting

The spirits that called Amazon

colleague Matthias Matting (Self Publisher Bible) brings the opinion also of many journalists in his review on the point. ” The new base Kindle is no longer recommended as an introduction to the electronic device reading. It is perhaps interesting for casual readers – avid users will be more likely deterred them “
