What is Screen resolution of Kindle Voyage?
Kindle Voyage comes with the best resolution and contrast to date – 300 ppi (pixels per inch). That means that texts are incredibly sharp and readable. Amazon claims that Kindle Voyage’s display looks and feels like reading a sheet of laser-printed paper. In my opinion, this is one of the best features of Kindle Voyage among the new features because the screen experience matters more than anything else. Kindle Voyage is first Amazon’s ebook reader that comes with glass screen – the other models come with plastic screen. With glass screen Kindle Voyage looks more stylish and the pane is one smooth screen unlike the earlier versions, which have edges. Amazon says the Kindle Voyage’s glass screen is designed to resist scratches. Kindle Voyage uses a new 6-inch Carta E Ink HD touchscreen display and capacitive touch technology, not the older infrared-based touch technology of the entry-level Kindle ebook readers. In order to avoid the glass screen glaring under sunlight, the glass of screen is micro-etched which means that they have topped the glass with matte material that is non-reflective to sunlight. Kindle Voyage has a tactile, paper-like feel when touching the display to swipe between pages or highlight words. One hand reading on Kindle Voyage is much easier. The Kindle Voyage's pages can be turned without swipes, just press thumb gently on the bottom corner of the screen.
