Hands on Kindle Paperwhite 4

Received my Kindle Paperwhite 4 today.

I was super impressed with the new box, the thinnest ereader box ever.
It looks like a chocolate bar.



The current firmware is 5.10.0.2 and I can't find its firmware on Amazon support page.




Checkout all the photos and my short hands on the All-new Kindle Paperwhite

Please comment if you want a video or compare it with Kindle Voyage or Kobo Clara HD. I will do some comparison if have time tomorrow.

Fine, beat me with getting yours first then.

I saw some updated reviews today from large websites. Both mentioned it's kind of sluggish as the main negative, which I expected since they don't seem to update the RAM, but it seems fine from reviews for turning pages.

Going to look at your pictures now, thanks for sharing. And you're right that box is just odd.

Just received my new Kindle, with a very bad surprise: Calibre can't detect the new device, even if the OS can see it and browse its contents. Can't find a solution for this issue :-(

Any hint?

Kovid took care of it a few hours ago, it'll make the next release.

Just feared of some hidden surprise by Amazon, to cut away third parties softwares.

If just patience is needed, it's not a big issue, I can have all the patience in the universe. I can bottle my patience up, and sell it across the entire Solar System

Since I won't get my PW4 until my sister visits Mexico in January, I like hearing about them from those more fortunate.

I don't understand why some reviews say not having buttons is a negative. It also doesn't have wheels, solar cells for charging, or a socket for a buggy whip but none of those are listed as negatives.

Thanks. I see that now by visiting the Calibre site. Considering how often they release updates I feel confident that it will be soon.

Yikes, didn't consider that on Calibre. Hopefully they are able to release an update soon, it's good the developer is so on top of things.

in the worst case scenario, i am assuming we could still use Calibre to email a book the new PW... (i hope). Amazon tells me I will be able to find out on Friday!!
