The world seems to be split between those who love the idea of reading their favorite novel on a computer screen, and the purist who would rather be holding a crisp, white piece of paper. Kindle has come up with a great compromise, which promises to add 62 percent more pixels (212 ppi), and 25 percent more contrast. The new Kindle design also incorporates a patented light guide, which spreads its LED across the surface of the screen in the same fashion as ambient light. The result is about as friendly to the eyes as a clean pressed page of a book. As you might expect, the new Kindle also comes with an 8-week battery life, 9mm thick dark external case, and optional 3G wireless.
