Shelly Palmer Radio Report – September 26, 2014

Amazon’s Kindle Voyage is the company’s best e-reader ever. Its biggest improvement over the Kindle Paperwhite is in its screen, which has a resolution of 300 pixels per inch. The text is more clear and crisp than ever, making it the best reading experience ever on an electronic device. The Voyage also includes an ambient light sensor, which dynamically adjusts the screen’s brightness depending on your settings. If you’re reading in the dark, the screen gradually gets darker as your eyes adjust to the darkness over time. The Voyage also has a new way of turning pages, called “PagePress,” which lets you gently squeeze the left or right bezel to turn the page. The Voyage also added some nice software features, too. It tracks how quickly you’re reading and displays how much time you have left until you finish your current chapter. “Word Wise,” meanwhile, expands the text to add hints and definitions for tougher words. If you’re looking for the next great e-reader, Amazon’s Kindle Voyage ships in late October for $199.
