Kindle Paperwhite goes beyond expectations


It looks like Amazon was pesimistic about the Paperwhite launch as the preorders have exceeded their expectations by quite a lot.  It doesnt make much sense if you consider that it's predcessor the Kindle eReader was the most sold item from the Kindle family and you can only expect better results if you bring a decent upgrade like the Paperwhite. Amazon started to ship the devices yesterday and if you try to buy it now, the Paperwhite could be yours after a 4 to 6 week delay due to high demand. There is also a limit of two devices per customer.

Barnes & Noble ready for Kindle Paperwhite


Amazon's new device, the Kindle Paperwhite will soon be shipping out from their warehouses and one of their biggest rivals Barnes & Noble won’t just sit around and wait to see what will happen. So far B&N has been at the top of the illuminated e-reader market and now Amazon wants their share of it too. The step B&N decided to take is to cut the price of their NOOK SimpleTouch with GlowLight device from $139 to $119, the same price that Amazon's Kindle Paperwhite will be selling. Even though it's pretty obvious that this is a reflex reaction to the Paperwhite launch, people at B&N say it has nothing to do with it.
