Amazon has released it’s very first Kindle designed for reading and writing and you can have it ordered and delivered by Christmas. The Kindle Scribe ($399.99) began shipping on Nov. 30 just as the holiday shopping season kicked off.
The device features the world’s first 10.2-inch, 300-ppi, high-definition, front-lit display screen and stylus pen.
“Kindle Scribe is the best Kindle we’ve ever built, creating a reading and writing experience that feels like real paper,” Kevin Keith, vice president of Amazon Devices said in a statement on Sept. 28. “It’s inspired by the Kindle customers who have added billions of notes and highlights to books over the years, and it’s also ideal for reviewing and marking up documents, managing your to-do list, or doodling over a big idea. Plus, it offers all the Kindle benefits customers know and love—millions of books on demand, adjustable fonts, premium reading features, and weeks and weeks of battery life—with the benefit of a beautiful, large display.”
Apart from new capabilities, Kindle Scribe comes equipped with fan-favorite features including an adjustable warm light, auto-adjusting front light, USB-C charging and a battery designed to last for months.
Kindle Scribe is available in 16 GB, 32 GB, or 64 GB of storage. Choose between the battery-free Basic Pen or the Premium Pen, which has an eraser and customizable shortcut button to open things like sticky notes (and be sure to add a fabric cover to keep your Scribe protected.)
