Screen

The smallish screen of the Amazon Kindle WiFi sports a resolution of 800 x 600, and a DPI of 175. What does this mean for you? Well, for starters, because of the type of screen used by the Amazon Kindle WiFi is eInk, the picture that you see will look almost exactly like a printed page to the naked eye. It would take a microscope to see the individual dots, and even then they are small. This screen will eventually make you forget you're reading an eBook.

Indoor & Outdoor Use

Because eInk screens use ambient light to make their picture visible, they are very easily readable in a huge range of light, from a moderately well-lit room to bright sunlight. Unlike eReaders and tablets with an LCD screen, this eReader can be taken to the beach and read easily.
