Brilliantly crisp display
NEW – The high-resolution display (300 ppi) features sharp, dark text that reads even more like the printed page. The micro-etched glass screen is crafted to eliminate glare and feel like paper to the touch.
Effortless page turns
NEW – PagePress allows you to turn the page without lifting a finger. Simply apply pressure on the bezel to turn the page, and PagePress will provide a silent haptic response for consistent and immediate feedback.
Light that adjusts with you
NEW – Kindle Voyage can be read in sunlight or total darkness—and it's smart enough to know the difference. With a new adaptive front light, Kindle Voyage senses the light in your environment and changes the setting to the ideal brightness.
Remarkably thin design
Comfortably hold Voyage in one hand for long reading sessions.
PagePress sensors with haptics
PagePress is a custom-designed force sensor made of carbon and silver, which reacts to a subtle increase of pressure, triggers a page-turn and provides a haptic response only your thumb can perceive. Because PagePress has no moving parts, the haptics provide you with the most minimal indication that you have pressed the button, to reduce distraction from reading.
Adaptive front light
In order to more closely resemble reading on real paper, we researched and hand-tuned the optimal brightness setting for every lighting condition. The new adaptive front light automatically adjusts the brightness of the display based on your environment, and can even be fine-tuned further to your personal preferences. When reading in the dark, the adaptive front light slowly lowers the display’s brightness over time to match the way the eye responds to darkness.
An unparalleled 300 ppi display
Kindle Voyage features the brightest, highest resolution, and highest contrast display of any Kindle. The micro-etched glass display diffuses light to eliminate glare and matches the feel of paper.
Sleek yet durable design
Kindle Voyage was designed to come one step closer to a sheet of paper, with a flush-front bezel for a clean, streamlined design. With a magnesium back and a chemically-reinforced glass front, Kindle Voyage is both durable and sleek.

A Kindle Paperwhite or Kindle Voyage 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.
Wi-Fi + free 3G
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 Voyage 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. Check 3G coverage area.

Top Customer Reviews
But, after 2 or more years, the Paperwhite began holding its charge for less and less time (which is not entirely unusual for rechargeable products), and it became unreliable for downloading new books automatically.
I could have replaced it with a new Paperwhite quite happily, but I decided to pay the extra and buy the Voyage.
It has the same Paperwhite e-ink screen, but has a light sensor for auto-adjustment of the screen brightness (if you set that to ‘On’), and you can use the haptic touch sections on the Left and Right-Hand sides of the front casing for page turning.
(The more lengthy ‘page forward’ touch section works better than the small ‘page back’ section, but you can still use the R & L touch actions on the main screen if you wish)
Otherwise, having used it, I can’t see a great deal of difference from the Paperwhite, but obviously it’s better.
I am not entirely sure that I would advise a new Kindle user to buy a Voyage from the outset, because the simpler standard Paperwhite has all the main features, and is better value for money in my opinion.
But I use my Kindle such a lot, that the extra features will be useful to me.
The Voyage comes with a good length USB to micro USB charge lead, and the only (small niggle) I have is that the cut-out port in the casing is not particularly well shaped.
On most charge ports the shape of the cut-out has a slightly rounded side, which tells you easily which way up is correct for insertion of the micro USB jack.Read more ›
