Amazon Launches Brazil Kindle Store and Free Portuguese Kindle Reading Apps for Android Phones and Tablets, iPads and iPhones—R$299 Kindle Available in the Coming Weeks
Small and Light: Kindle is small and light. At only 170 grams, it’s the lightest Kindle we’ve ever made, weighing less than a typical paperback. Kindle is small enough to fit in a pocket and take with you everywhere, while still keeping the same 6-inch e-ink display found in previous generations of Kindle.
Electronic Ink Display: Kindle’s high-contrast electronic e-ink display delivers clear, crisp text and images. Unlike LCD screens, Kindle reads like real paper, with no glare, even in bright sunlight.
Page Turn Buttons and Even Faster Page Turns: Page turn buttons allow you to easily turn pages with either hand, while continuing to hold the Kindle in a reading position. Kindle also features 15 percent faster page turns than the previous generation Kindle.
Built-In Wi-Fi: Kindle has built-in Wi-Fi support.
Books in 60 Seconds: With fast, free wireless delivery, customers can start reading books on Kindle in less than 60 seconds.
Holds up to 1,400 Books: Kindle allows customers to carry their entire library in their pocket.
Up To One Month Battery Life: Read for up to one month on a single charge with wireless off.
Free Cloud Storage: Books purchased from the Kindle Store are automatically backed up for free in the Worry-Free Archive where they can be re-downloaded wirelessly, anytime.
Whispersync: Amazon’s Whispersync technology synchronizes a customer’s last page read, bookmarks and annotations across all of their devices, so they can always pick up where they left off.
Massive Selection: The Kindle Store has over 1.4 million books, including 13,000 Portuguese-language books, new releases, and 49 of 60 Veja best sellers, more than any other digital bookstore.
Free Books: Over 1,500 free Portuguese-language books are available to read on Kindle.
Free Book Samples: First chapters of Kindle books are available for customers to download and read for free before they decide to buy.
Reading Features: Kindle offers three font styles and eight different text sizes, so customers can easily customize their reading experience. Plus, with improved fonts and faster page turns, reading on Kindle is better than ever. Kindle also comes with a built-in dictionary, instant lookup of words, popular highlights, Facebook and Twitter integration, support for bookmarks and annotations and more.
Parental Controls: Customers can restrict access to the Experimental Web Browser, Archived Items and the Kindle Store before giving Kindle to a child.
Instant Dictionary Lookups: Customers enjoy instant dictionary lookups with the built-in Dicionário Priberam da Língua Portuguesa.
