Amazon Releases 32GB Kindle Paperwhite for Manga in Japan (Video)

Kindle Paperwhite 32GB

Amazon has released a new variation of the Kindle Paperwhite in Japan that comes with 32GB of internal storage space instead of the usual 4GB.

The 8x increased storage capacity is intended to house manga and comics that are a lot larger in size than regular ebooks.

Currently the 32GB Paperwhite is limited to residents in Japan only, so it doesn’t mean anything for most of us.

Here’s the link to the product page for the 32GB Kindle Paperwhite, and here’s the press release for more info.

The 32GB Kindle also boasts 33% faster page-turns, but the press release seems to indicate that’s because of a software update that will be coming to all current Kindles soon.

Typical Amazon. Instead of coming out with something new and interesting they choose to release another 6-inch Kindle Paperwhite clone with one slight variation from the regular Kindle Paperwhite.

They could have released a Kindle with a larger screen that would have been much better suited for manga and comics but of course they’d rather just keep re-releasing the same products over and over again and call them “new”.

  1. Although I love my 6″ Paperwhite….a larger screen would be cool.

    I think Amazon almost had to come out with a larger screen, in order to stay relevant. The problem is….where would it fall in their current line up?

    • I don’t know but it sure is boring going two years in a row now without any new Kindles being released in the fall. This time of year used to be the most interesting for new ereaders getting released. At least Kobo is keeping things going…

  2. No way I could ever go back to a 6″ eReader. NEVER! Between the Aura H2O with the header footer patch and the Aura ONE, there is absolutely no need for a 6″ Kindle. It doesn’t matter of they have 32gb or 128gb with sheepskin and 500ppi if their going to continue the 6″ route. You can keep your Kindles!

  3. Weren’t we talking about SD storage just a few months ago and most of you said that 4GB was enough? LOL
