The backlight stunts battery life, but the Kindle Paperwhite is an impressive eReader.

The rather nondescript packaging to the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite contains your eReader, and a USB cable. Not much to see here.

Handling

For the most part, eReaders have fallen into about what their ideal form should be, so there are very few if any innovations from year to year with this. Like it is with most other eReaders, its light weight makes it easy to hold for long durations, and there aren't any sharp or prominent edges that will dig into your hand or anything. Overall, very satisfying to use.
