A Kindle Paperwhite with Wi-Fi is a great choice if you already have a high-speed Internet connection and wireless router set up in your home. If you do not have Wi-Fi set up at home, a 3G model may be a better option—3G connectivity lets you download books anytime, anywhere.
A model with Wi-Fi + free 3G is the easiest option because there is no wireless setup—you are ready to shop, purchase and read right out of the box. Built-in free 3G connectivity uses the same wireless signals that mobile phones use, but there are no monthly fees or commitments—Amazon pays for 3G wireless connectivity. The added convenience of 3G enables you to download books anytime, anywhere, without having to find a Wi-Fi hotspot connection. Your Kindle Paperwhite may use wireless connectivity to make other services available, such as wireless delivery of personal documents, which may require an additional charge. For more information, see Wireless Terms and Conditions
With wireless coverage in over 100 countries and territories, 3G lets you download books anytime, anywhere, whether you're relaxing on a beach, halfway through a hike or waiting on the tarmac.
Some books may not be eligible for download over 3G wireless, including promotional content or where indicated on a book detail page.
Download the Kindle app on your smartphone or tablet to keep reading when you don’t have your Kindle with you.
Amazon’s Whispersync technology remembers where you left off in a book, so you can seamlessly switch between your Kindle and the Kindle app on your smartphone, tablet or computer without ever losing your place.
Shop Amazon’s expansive selection, choose a title and begin reading in seconds. Download books in under 60 seconds - no computer required.
New titles and archived items are a simple connection away. Connect easily to your home Wi-Fi network or Wi-Fi hotspots on the road.
Kindle can be used in English, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian, Dutch 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.
Kindle 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 also displays Korean, Cyrillic, Latin and Greek scripts and provides free access to several international dictionaries.
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.
