Amazon also added advanced hyphenation, a feature that should improve layouts and make reading certain eBooks less awkward on the Kindle Paperwhite.
You won't realize how awkward Kindle line spacing was until you've seen your first properly hyphenated Kindle page, and then you'll never want to go back. The new layout engine is also much better at handling drop caps and embedded charts in Kindle books.
How much is all that going to cost you? You can purchase the new Kindle Paperwhite for the same, affordable price of $119. You can order the upgraded eReader on Amazon now, but it won't ship until June 30.
