Amazon Kindle Voyage

Amazon continues its reign in the e-reader world by introducing a new device to its Kindle line-up called the Kindle Voyage.

The new e-reader gets a luxurious upgrade over its predecessors, featuring a matte magnesium shell with a micro-etched, chemically-hardened glass screen that almost completely eliminates glare. It also boasts a next-gen Paperwhite display that packs 300 ppi into a 6-inch panel, helping it offer more crisp text and images reading even more like it was on printed paper. It's also the thinnest Kindle yet at just 7.6mm.

As far as software, it features an expanded X-Ray, Bing-powered translations, in-line footnotes, Goodreads sharing, The New Oxford American Dictionary integration, and more.

The Amazon Kindle Voyage is due out Oct. 21 for $199 USD. Pre-orders are available now online.
