The Voyage is thinner, lighter, and ever-so-slightly smaller than the Paperwhite, but the big deal is the screen. Amazon has increased the resolution so that it reaches 300 pixels per inch, which makes text incredibly sharp and readable. I ratcheted the text size all the way down to the lowest setting and found it to still be crisp and sharp enough to read. 

Along with the higher resolution, the screen is also higher contrast. It doesn't quite reach the black-on-white distinction you can get with paper or with an LCD, but it's a subtle improvement over the Paperwhite — enough that you'll appreciate it after your fifth straight hour reading Game of Thrones. It's front-lit, like the previous Kindle Paperwhite, but Amazon has made improvements there too: there's an ambient light sensor which allows the Voyage to dynamically adjust the brightness depending on your settings.

You will travelin a land of marvels

Brilliantly crisp display

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.

Light that adjusts with you

Kindle Voyage can be read in bright 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.

Effortless page turns

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.

Remarkably thin design

At just 7.6mm thin, Voyage is our thinnest Kindle ever. Comfortably hold Kindle Voyage in one hand for long reading sessions.

Thoughtfully crafted to the last detail

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.

Sleek yet durable designs

At only 7.6mm thin, Voyage is our thinnest Kindle ever. 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 specially-reinforced glass front, Kindle Voyage is both durable and sleek.

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.

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.

Encourage their love of reading

Fewer distractions, more reading

Kindle is designed for reading, which means zero distractions for kids. With Kindle, they can look up definitions as they read to build their vocabulary and increase the font size for easier reading. They can read thousands of books for free, including classics likeTreasure Island and eBooks from your local library. And they can easily take their books with them without loading up a heavy backpack.

Read more challenging books

For kids reading their first chapter books, Word Wise, available on many popular English language titles, makes it easier to enjoy and quickly understand more challenging books. Short and simple definitions automatically appear above difficult words, so they can keep reading with fewer interruptions. Tap on a word to bring up a simple card with definitions, synonyms, and more. Kids can adjust the number of hints they see with a simple slider. 

Official e-reader of the PTA

Kindle and the National PTA are working together to help families get more involved in their children's reading and enhance their emerging interest in books. In support of this mission, the PTA Family Reading Experience, Powered by Kindle—is available to local PTAs around the United States.

Kindle in the classroom

The same great features that help adults lose themselves in a book on Kindle translate seamlessly to the classroom, engaging children and encouraging their interest in reading. Schools can centrally manage Kindle devices and send eBooks to students with Whispercast. 

Power up their vocabulary

Kindle makes it easy for young readers to add new words to their vocabulary. Words looked up on Kindle are automatically added to Vocabulary Builder, where kids can quiz themselves with flashcards to reinforce new word retention. 

Kindle FreeTime

Encourage kids to read even more. Kindle FreeTime lets you create personalized profiles for kids, and give them access to titles from your collection of books. Kids are rewarded with achievement badges when they reach their goals. A progress report keeps parents updated on total time spent reading, number of words looked up, badges earned, and books read. 

Kindle FreeTime Unlimited

For as little as $2.99 per month, kids get unlimited access to hundreds of hand-picked chapter books and early readers, all curated for age-appropriateness, so parents don’t have to spend time and money guessing what their kids will enjoy.

Connectivity Options


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 cell 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 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, seeWireless 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.

For U.S. customers traveling abroad, additional charges apply for wireless delivery of periodical subscriptions. To avoid any charges, you can always use a Wi-Fi connection or download items via your computer and transfer them to your Kindle using USB. 

Some books may not be eligible for download over 3G wireless, including promotional content or where indicated on a book detail page.
