Amazon introduces Kindle Voyage for readers in India


Bangalore: Amazon has announced the availability of Kindle Voyage, the 7th generation of Kindle, in India. Kindle Voyage is the thinnest, most advanced Kindle ever and features a higher resolution, higher contrast display with a new adaptive front light and reimagined page turns.

“The stylishly designed Kindle Voyage was crafted to give readers the best possible reading experience,” said Rajiv Mehta, Country Manager, Kindle India. “They can download books from the selection of 3 million eBooks in the India Kindle Store, read for hours without eyestrain or glare, and even read in bright sunlight. With free 3G available on Kindle Voyage, users never have to hunt for or pay for a Wi-Fi hotspot. With a battery life that’s measured in weeks, it is the perfect reading companion.”

Kindle Voyage was unveiled for Indian customers at the opening day’s finale show by JJ Valaya, titled ‘The Bolshoi Bazaar’ at the Amazon India Fashion week Autumn-Winter, 2015.

“It gives me immense joy to associate with Kindle, an experience discovered by me only a few months back. Being an avid reader or rather used to soaking in visual experiences of elaborate coffee table books, I had never really felt the need to invest in books that were meant to be read. But the geek in me unearthed the reader in me when I discovered Kindle…be it Philosophy, Poetry, History from across the planet, this was the perfect answer!” said Valaya.

“We want to make it easier for our customers across India to read more and more, anytime and anywhere. The choice of devices and additional payment methods are all to enable and celebrate their passion for reading,” added Mehta.

The new Kindle Voyage priced at Rs. 16, 499/- is available starting today at and through 350 plus offline stores across the country.

Earlier this week, India Kindle Store also announced support for local credit and debit cards, net banking and gift cards to purchase eBooks.
