Dick Smith, Big W now selling new Kindle Paperwhite

Amazon's new Kindle Paperwhite eReader is now available through Dick Smith and Big W retail outlets

Amazon's new Kindle Paperwhite eReader is now available through Dick Smith and Big W retail outlets in Australia, the company has announced.

The new Kindle Paperwhite is available in two models. The Wi-Fi only model retails for $159, while a Wi-Fi + 3G will retail for $229.

"BIG W is always looking for ways to bring the very latest in cutting edge technology to its customers at the lowest price and that's why we are so excited to be ranging the new Kindle Paperwhite," said Big W's Head Technology Buyer, Scott White.

The second generation Kindle Paperwhite went on sale in the US last month. It retains the same form factor, 206g weight and eight week battery life of its predecessor.

However, the new Paperwhite has a brighter, back-lit, E Ink screen, and a faster processor that promises improved page turns when reading.

Other new features include new touch technology that Amazon claims is 19 per cent tighter than the previous model, in a bid to avoid accidental page turns.

There's also the ability to page flip without losing your reading place, and a "Smart Lookup" dictionary that includes other reference information about a word.

The Wi-Fi only Kindle Paperwhite is available now, while the Wi-Fi + 3G model will be available "in the coming weeks".
