KINDLEPW code gets a Paperwhite for $99
E-reader giant Amazon is holding a special promotion for its Kindle Paperwhite e-reader, making versions of the device available for $99 with a special promotional code. The Kindle Paperwhite can be bought for $20 off by entering the coupon code "KINDLEPW" during the ordering process. The deal applies to any version of the Kindle Paperwhite, and it runs through April 30, 2013.
The Kindle Paperwhite's display has a resolution of 212ppi, and it features a light guide system that scatters light evenly across the display, making it easier to read in a variety of environments. It also has a 25 percent higher contrast ratio than previous Kindles.
At 9.1mm thick, the device is thinner than many magazines, and at 7.5 ounces, it's lighter than a paperback novel. Amazon says the device's battery will go eight weeks on a single charge.
