We don’t know if the timing has anything to do with Apple’s iPad mini unveiling, but Amazon is finally making headway with its new e-book reader and tablets in the key market of Japan. The Land of the Rising Sun will get the Paperwhite and two Kindle Fires starting next month, while Amazon’s Kindle Store will open tomorrow, on October 25.
What’s wrong with the Kindle Paperwhite? Amazon explains
Amazon has taken the unusual step of releasing a short message about the Kindle Paperwhite's “limitations”, which include a lack of audio and Text-to-Speech functionality, uneven light on the bottom of the screen, and a limited amount of storage.

The Kindle Paperwhite is popular. So popular in fact, that unless you've already preordered it, you won't be able to get your hands on it until October 22. While you wait for your order to arrive, Amazon has released a video that shows off some of the technology inside the Kindle Paperwhite.
Today's Amazon Kindle event is over, and man what a ride it was. In the tablet world, Amazon's aging Kindle Fire was threatened by Nexus 7 and the upcoming iPad Mini. In the e-reader universe, the Kindle was falling behind the competition without its own fronlit model.
Kindle Paperwhite is official, and it looks amazing
When it comes to mobile browsing and gaming, tablets are certainly the way to go. For reading, many still prefer the e-ink screens found with a quality e-reader. One of the most popular e-reader brands out there is the Amazon Kindle. For those that want a frontlit experience, you previously had make do with the Nook SimpleTouch GlowLight. Not any longer. The much-anticipated Kindle Paperwhite has finally arrived today, bringing many interesting new features with it- including a frontlit display. The illumination of the Paperwhite relies on a fiber optic system, similar to the Nook.
