THE amazon presented, this Wednesday (28), the new Kindle Scribe. With a 10.1-inch screen, the new e-reader has a pen that can be used both to help you take notes in books and to take notes when studying, preparing for meetings and the like. The gadget still has a battery that promises to spend weeks away from the charger.
history in development
Amazon is still introducing its new products. Therefore, the text will be updated throughout the day.
This is the first Kindle to support a pen. Through it, users will no longer have limits when reading books and PDF files, as it will be possible to write directly in the text. In other words: did you have any insights or do you want to make a drawing, arrow or similar while reading? No problem, just use the accessory.
The new function tends to be a great attraction for those who use the Kindle to study. In graduation, for example, I got to use my Kindle Paperwhite to do my monograph. However, after a while, I switched from the e-reader to the iPad because I needed to highlight and take notes with a pen when preparing the file.
The release will also offer a function for taking notes outside of books and promises to be easy to use. According to Amazon, the pen can be stored on the side of the Kindle Scribe by a magnet, as well as on some tablets. In addition, it will not be necessary to recharge or configure the accessory to be used.
Starting in 2023, users will also be able to send Microsoft Word documents to the device.
Kindle Scribe has a 10.1-inch screen
The gadget guarantees the biggest screen among the brand’s e-readers. At 10.1 inches, the panel offers a density of 300 ppi, just like the Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Oasis, known for their high quality panel. The device also has an adjustable backlight so you can keep reading even in dark places.
The battery is another highlight. Following on from the other products in the line, the Kindle Scribe has a battery that lasts for weeks, depending on use. Users also have access to Amazon’s vast catalog of books.
price and availability
According to Amazon, the Kindle Scribe will be sold in the United States for the suggested price of US$ 339.99, about R$ 1,750 in direct conversion.
It is worth mentioning that the pen comes with the device in the box. But Amazon will also sell a $30 “premium” edition with a customizable button and eraser sensor for erasing notes.
So far, there is no release date for the device in Brazil.
