Of course Amazon doesn’t refer to lớn them as the Papertrắng 1, 2, etc.

Instead they’ve simply called all four models the “Kindle Paperwhite” all through the years to try & confuse everyone (especially when you’re trying lớn find a new cover or accessory).

The way they’ve chosen to differentiate each Mã Sản Phẩm is by generation, but they are referring khổng lồ the overall Kindle generation, not the PaperTrắng line specifically.

It breaks down lượt thích this:

Kindle Paperwhite 1 – 5th generation.Kindle PaperWhite 2 – 6th generation.Kindle Papertrắng 3 – 7th generation.Kindle Papertrắng 4 – 10th generation.

If you want khổng lồ know which specific Model you have, there’s this Which Kindle E-reader Do I Have? page at Amazon that lists all the Kindle models, with a basic mô tả tìm kiếm of each one.

Looking baông chồng, I thought it would be interesting lớn see how the Kindle PaperTrắng has evolved over the years.

Kindle Paperwhite 1

The 1st Kindle Paperwhite was released back in October 2012. It had a 212 ppi E Ink Pearl screen và it was the first Kindle khổng lồ have sầu a frontlight.

Earlier Kindles supported text-to-speech and audiobooks, but Amazon completely removed those features on the 1st Kindle PaperWhite, and they also decreased storage space from 4GB to 2GB, which didn’t sit well with some folks.

The 1st ren Kindle PaperWhite ended up with a 4.3-star rating based on customer reviews at Amazon, a step up from the 4.0-star rating for the Kindle cảm ứng that the PaperTrắng replaced.

Kindle PaperWhite 2

The 2nd Kindle PaperWhite model was released less than one year after the 1st version in September 2013.

It was a relatively minor update, but they did nâng cấp lớn a newer faster processor & the lathử nghiệm E Ink Carta screen with better contrast (still with 212 ppi).

Touchscreen responsiveness was also improved, và so was the frontlight, which was more evenly lit than the first gen model.

The 2nd ren Kindle Paperwhite ended up having a 4.5-star rating over all customer Đánh Giá at Amazon, making it one of the most well-liked Kindles of all time.

Kindle Papertrắng 3

Amazon released the Kindle Papertrắng 3 in June 2015.

Basically there were only two improvements: they upgraded the screen lớn 300 ppi & they doubled storage space và RAM to lớn 4GB & 512MB. But the Papertrắng 2 had already gotten a boost up to 4GB partially through it’s run so basically it was just a screen tăng cấp.

A 32GB Manga Mã Sản Phẩm was eventually released in Japan as well, which was exactly the same otherwise.

Amazon decided khổng lồ drop support for Active sầu Content on the Paperwhite 3 so Kindle apps và games were no longer supported. Some people are still complaining about that move.

The Kindle PaperWhite 3 ended up averaging a 4.4-star rating at Amazon.

Kindle PaperTrắng 4

Amazon released the Kindle PaperWhite 4 in November 2018, making it the longest time between new Papertrắng releases, with a 3+ year gap between models.

The Papertrắng 4 brought the most changes compared lớn previous upgrades, with an all-new waterproof kiến thiết và flush front screen.

They also increased storage space to 8GB & added a 32GB option. Amazon finally added audiobook tư vấn to lớn the Paperwhite line as well, with the option khổng lồ listen using Bluetooth speakers or headphones.

It has a couple of new software features too, including the option lớn read with Trắng text on a black background và you can disable the touchscreen (except for page-turn swipes) to lớn avoid accidental presses.

The Kindle PaperTrắng 4 currently has a 4.2-star rating at Amazon. It’s interesting how it has the lowest rating of all the Kindle Paperwhites, despite all the improvements made over the years.

At one time, you could download your Nook books into Calibre, remove DRM và change the format from epub khổng lồ mobile (or one of the other Kindle formats). However, it is practically impossible lớn tải về your Nook books onto lớn the computer. Barnes and Noble has done everything they can khổng lồ keep customers from doing so. That is why I am now mainly a Kobo user, along with the PW on occasion. The short answer lớn your question: NO, you cannot tải về the Nook books, much less change the format và load them on another reader, such as a Kindle. If someone knows how khổng lồ really vày it, some of us with Nook books would love to know the answer.

Yes you can import nook books lớn Calibre. You need the DeDRM plugin, your key hash (there’s one site that sells DRM removal software called (name removed) or something, give sầu them the gmail và password in an email & they give you the has- yes it is trustworthy as I have done it và haven’t been hacked).then with a rooted nook or app android device with the nook tiện ích go to lớn the root of your device via a file explorer lượt thích FX, them data, data, and look for a b&n thing. open it and after poking around you will find your epubs. extract them khổng lồ a user accessible part like your documents folder và plug the device in. after that copy the epubs over & disconnect. in calibre (with dedrm installed), open the settings of dedrm & choose the barnes và noble/nook option, & import the hash you got in the email. then after this all you should be able to export your B&N epubs lớn mobile & whatnot with no drm.

yes this is legitimately the only way khổng lồ vị this anymore

It’s interesting to see the difference over time. What are people doing with old kindles? I have an old basic kindle with physical buttons it just stopped working one day. I’ve been trying khổng lồ find a use for the screen as I’m guessing it would still work gas anyone reused old hardware? As for example a wall calendar or weather display?

Just got the new Papertrắng and I have an issue Amazon could not help me with. All of my content & collections are there. However, the items IN my collections ALSO show up in my Library. That kind of defeats the purpose of a collection. Has anybody toàn thân else had that issue? And if so, have you found a way lớn keep items in a collection out of the Library? (Like the old Kindles did!)
