The Kindle ebook reader has been around since 2007 and has had several changes and improvements since it was first introduced.

You can easily read the books on Kindle Paperwhite in bright sunlight without any glare, which is one of the biggest advantages of using Kindle Paperwhite ebook reader over a tablet or smartphone. Kindle Paperwhite uses e-ink screen technology that makes very smooth and readable text. Reading text on e-ink screen is like reading a real book.
The screen on Kindle Paperwhite has built-in front light, which means LED lights along the edge of the display shine down onto the digital page, not from the back of the screen like many other ereaders and tablets do.
What kind of Built-in Light is on Kindle Paperwhite?
Kindle Paperwhite is a step up from all Kindle models before it in numerous ways. The most noticeable change is the addition of a built-in light that will illuminate the screen evenly and is adjustable. All previous models of Kindle ebook readers required an external light source for reading in dark, just like you would need to read a regular book. But with Kindle Paperwhite, you can read anywhere under any lighting condition. You can continue your beach reading in the dark of your bedroom without having to turn on light or a lamp.
The fact that display of Kindle Paperwhite comes equipped with a granularly adjustable front light system is one of the key advantages of the device. If you turn the front light on Kindle Paperwhite up to its maximum setting you will be able to read a book in the brightest sunlight. If you turn the built-in front light down to its minimum level you will be able to read in bed in the dark without disturbing your partner.
You can easily adjust that brightness on Kindle Paperwhite, just use the on-screen slider control to adjust level of the built-in front light or to turn the front light off. There is no dedicated physical button for turning the light on and off like there is on the Kobo ereader.
The idea of using built-in front light display is not new. Barnes & Noble was the first one to introduced built-in front light display on Nook Glowlight a few months before Amazon released Kindle Paperwhite. However, the key difference between Kindle Paperwhite and its competitors is the uniformity with which the built-in front light is distributed. Kindle Paperwhite uses a fiber optic waveguide to ensure that the screen maintains a uniform brightness.
