One year after the launch of the Kindle Voyage in the United States took the Tolino Alliance at this year’s Frankfurt Book Fair with the new edition of Tolino Vision and Tolino Shine a double blow to Amazon, and presented the first own e-reader with high-resolution display.


The new Tolino Vision 3 HD differs from its predecessor Vision 2 on paper only by the display, the new Shine 2 HD has compared to the Shine missed getting a slimmer body. The price has risen for both models compared to the previous

New resolution and old problems

The high resolution display of E Ink including current Carta technology solves both devices now with 1,072 × 1,448 pixels on what in a pixel density of 300 ppi results and the two readers can enter into direct competition with the current Kindle Voyage and Kindle Paperwhite. In direct comparison to the Kindle family the new Tolino readers have a slightly lighter background, but at the same time is also illuminated somewhat uneven. The brightness is also different between the two devices, the Vision 3 HD offers the visible lighter panel.

Upon request, as bright as Amazon’s Kindle

In terms of luminous paint both brothers could be different not: While the Vision 3 HD drifts slightly bluish, the Shine 2 HD comes up with a rather yellowish display. The panel of the Kindle Paperwhite contrast seems essential neutral

ghosting problems only partially corrected

The body responsible for development of the readers German Telekom had announced 2 HD for the presentation of the Vision 3 HD and Shine, which is caused by the inversion at the change of short black screen flicker when you switch almost to have eliminated. However, this is only true as long as the inversion is disabled in the default settings. However, this has the consequence that the background of the reader after prolonged reading through residual fragments having no more uniform color. The current E-Ink technology, the ghosting problem therefore can not be entirely avoided, even when compared with older generations of readers, the problems have improved significantly. The best representation of results are still achieved when each leaves an inversion is performed. At the speed at the change this has also in the new Tolino models only minor influence

A to make binding statement on the music speed is difficult because both devices often behave differently. Despite the same technical foundation times scrolls the Vision 3 HD, the Shine 2 times faster HD. The same behavior can also be observed in comparison to the current Kindle Paperwhite.

New Kindle Paperwhite discounted by 20 Euro –

Heuer did the price development of eBook readers tend to show up. Virtually all Newcomers were more expensive than their predecessors. The Kindle Paperwhite is no exception. For around 120 Euro Amazon has brought the new model on the market, corresponding to a price premium of around 20 percent.

And yet the holiday shopping season now again provides for that the downward price spiral turns: After in September for a short time a Paperwhite has occurred Action Shops, week, it is now in the course of Cyber ​​Monday, as usual. Kindle Paperwhite 3 is now available for only 99 Euro. Thus the youngest eReader the mail order company by exactly 20 euros is cheaper than is usually the case. The same price reduction is also true for the other variants:. Without discount you pay now 119 euros, for the 3G version 159 euros or 179 euros are due

Note: The pros and cons of the 3G version will be described in detail in this article

For starting price of around 100 Euro offers Amazon the currently best eBook Reader with Retina display. The pixel density of 300 ppi ensures crisp text rendering. The main competitors offer as high-resolution e-ink Carta display technology, but costs regularly at least 20 euros more: For Tolino Shine 2 HD 119 euros are due, the Kobo Glo HD costs 129 euros

<. p> For all those who are interested in buying a new eReader itself looking for a Christmas gift or that special offer is a terrific way to particularly favorable to come to a retina model. The offer is valid until November 30 (23:59 Clock) or while stocks last.

Experience shows that the stock level at Cyber ​​Monday deals may well quickly to Neige go than you think. If you are interested, you should not wait too long with the purchase thus. If in doubt you can use the extended return period that Amazon grants during the Christmas shopping season.

  • Kindle Paperwhite WiFi for 99.99 euros
  • Kindle Paperwhite 3G for 159,99 Euro

The Paperwhite price reduction raises Of course the question on whether or not (again) get involved in a price war that Amazon’s competitors this year.

Already in 2014, Amazon has the predecessor repeatedly cheaper offered and eventually reduced permanently in the price. That was particularly problematic for the Tolino Vision 2, because the price was significantly higher than non-binding, the Paperwhite-special offers. Eventually, the price of the Vision 2 was after a brief high also lowered permanently.

Since the Tolino flagship but was still expensive and on top of that still possessed the slightly lower contrast , the Kindle Paperwhite seemed nevertheless to have often outsells

However Heuer sees the initial situation is very different:. has the Tolino Alliance next to the high-priced Vision 3HD also brought Shine (159 Euro) 2 HD (119 euros) on the market. The Shine-successor is priced in direct competition with the Paperwhite. In contrast to previous years, it also no longer needs to hide the first time before the technology of the Amazon device, because the Tolino Shine 2 HD (and also the Vision 3 HD) offer a truly outstanding readability. The hardware of the Kindle Paperwhite they are thus in nothing after.

This is also the competition potentially exciting (and harder), because while in the previous year appeared to be rather limited price reductions of Vision 2, is likely to be 2 HD for Tolino partner better feasible an interim discount of Shine.

This could be turn the tables again and after a long time to make Amazon again fire under the rear. Already the first Shine sold dazzling thanks to low price and had an enormously rapid growth in market share result. Also for technology savvy reader friends and hobbyists the new models are due Tolino Rooting opportunity particularly attractive.

Kindle-à-Gogo: Amazon opens pop-up kiosks in shopping malls Paris –

Home “e-reader
November 20, 2015 Ansgar Warner 0 Comments

 Kindle pop-up store-in-paris If you already created any clothing store with the Pope in Wuppertal, as it would then be time with a Kindle kiosk with Jeff Bezos in Paris? Exactly’s at the edge of the French capital now actually (only without Jeff Bezos in a personal capacity), because in the middle of two popular shopping malls, the US company has opened pop-up kiosks these days.

The purpose the spontaneous jamboree is clear: At the noble wood-paneled Comptoires in La Défense and Le Chesnay the Kindle model from the base reader should be promoted to Kindle Voyage and Kindle Fire tablet during the sale strong Christmas season, namely, seven days a week. The execution of the mini-project has taken together with the Parisian start-up Coephe Retailbox the Italian agency Target, which has specialized in the “commerce ephemeral” in shopping malls.

If no mayflies so mean two kiosks So definitely not the entry into the stationary store, such as Amazon is testing him straight in Seattle: the end of January to be dismantled, the French pop-up kiosks again – so they are rather part of Amazon’s experimentation, the Us and Others even Kindle automata has given at airports.

But the ephemeral Paris-presence for the Kindle can not hurt probably because on the public market have e-books across the Rhine only a meager share of sales of 3 percent ergattert. This does not mean that the pop-up concept would not be worth even in Germany … perhaps within sight of Thalia or Hugendubel branch? The media coverage would certainly ever guaranteed.
