Amazon today announced the availability of Kindle Voyage, the 7th generation of Kindle, in India. Kindle Voyage is the thinnest, most advanced Kindle ever and features a higher resolution, higher contrast display with a new adaptive front light and reimagined page turns.
"The stylishly designed Kindle Voyage was crafted to give readers the best possible reading experience," said Rajiv Mehta, Country Manager, Kindle India. "They can download books from the selection of 3 million eBooks in the India Kindle Store, read for hours without eyestrain or glare, and even read in bright sunlight. With free 3G available on Kindle Voyage, users never have to hunt for or pay for a Wi-Fi hotspot. With a battery life that's measured in weeks, it is the perfect reading companion."
Kindle Voyage will be unveiled for Indian customers at the opening day's finale show by JJ Valaya, titled "The Bolshoi Bazaar" at the Amazon India Fashion week Autumn-Winter, 2015.
"It gives me immense joy to associate with Kindle, an experience discovered by me only a few months back. Being an avid reader or rather used to soaking in visual experiences of elaborate coffee table books, I had never really felt the need to invest in books that were meant to be read. But the geek in me unearthed the reader in me when I discovered Kindle...be it Philosophy, Poetry, History from across the planet, this was the perfect answer!" said Valaya.

"We want to make it easier for our customers across India to read more and more, anytime and anywhere. The choice of devices and additional payment methods are all to enable and celebrate their passion for reading." added Mehta.
Kindle Voyage features a flush glass front and a magnesium back with 7.6 mm thickness and weighing less than 6.4 ounces,
Kindle Voyage uses a brand new Paperwhite display, with the highest resolution, highest contrast, and highest brightness of any Kindle. This device has 300 pixels per inch, which delivers laser-quality text and images. The exclusive flush-front display stack is designed to resist scratches.
In addition the new adaptive front light automatically adjusts the brightness of the display based on the surrounding light. And the adaptive front light can be fine-tuned to your personal preference. Also, since the human eye adjusts to darkness over time, the adaptive front light slowly lowers the display's brightness over time to match the way the eye responds to darkness.
Moreover, Kindle Voyage introduces PagePress, a new way to turn pages, which uses a custom-designed force sensor that sits directly under the bezel.
Additionally, Kindle Voyage is available with free 3G, where they can simply download and read books anytime, anywhere, in over 100 countries around the world.
Some of the Kindle Features Includes, Worry-Free Archive, Weeks of Battery Life, No set up required, Whispersync, Smart Lookup, Time to Read, Kindle Page Flip, Vocabulary Builder, Facebook and Twitter.
The new Kindle Voyage priced at Rs 16, 499/- is available starting today at www.amazon.in and through 350 plus offline stores across the country.
