Today you'll be digging your fingernails into your kneecaps with anticipation all the more readily as Amazon ships their Kindle Paperwhite device to stores across the USA. If you've ordered a unit beforehand, expect your device to be getting to your home either today or within the next couple of days without a doubt. If you're thinking about getting an e-reader in the near future and have been thinking about grabbing a Kindle, now is the time - have a peek at our full Kindle Paperwhite review and check the details.

This release is what Amazon is calling the "most advanced e-reader built" and lets the world know without hesitation that they've got technology that'll back up their claim. In our full review, you'll find that Cory Gunther had a fabulous time taking a peek at how this device functioned. In addition to this device having a free 3G connection at all times in 100 different countries around the world, it's got advanced display technology that brings your reading experience up to a new level.

"Essentially what we have here is a front — or side-lit display — instead of a backlit screen that will strain your eyes after an extended period of time. What makes the new Paperwhite that much better than the Touch is not just the built-in light on the screen, but the 6-inch display has 62% more pixels (221PPI) with a 1024 x 768 resolution too. The screen looks better, text is crisp, vivid, and easy to read, and of course the light makes the reading experience top notch." - Cory Gunther

This device will work with Amazon Prime for 210,000 books right out of the Lending Library, and of course the full Amazon e-book library is open to anyone who purchases the device - buy em up! This device also comes in a wi-fi-only iteration for a slightly smaller cost. The wi-fi version of this tablet will cost you $119 USD while the 3G version will run you $179. Expect these devices in stores this week - and again, if you've pre-ordered a Kindle Paperwhite, it's time to start waiting by the mailbox!
