Amazon has finally unveiled their next low cost book reader in its Kindle range, the Amazon All-New Kindle.
The new Kindle will boast several new features apart from its low cost to impress the buyers. It includes Kindle FreeTime, Vocabulary Builder, Ready-to-use, whispersync, Smart Lookup with better archiving capability and extended battery life.
For encouraging kids to read more, Kindle has added a feature called FreeTime, which will allow parents to select the books and hands out a progress report on total time spent, number of words looked up and books finished. To encourage the kids, this feature also provides badges.
It also adds a Vocabulary builder, which fetches the words directly from the dictionary and later expands the reader's knowledge.
The All-New kindle saves and synchronizes last read, bookmarks and annotation across devices and Kindle apps and also integrates a full dictionary definition with other reference information via X-Ray and Wikipedia.
The All-New Kindle will be available for ₹5,999 with faster processing, bigger storage and a touchscreen interface.
The device will be made available at Amazon's retail website and 320 retail stores across India, including Croma, Reliance Digital, EZone and Vijay Sales stores across India.
