Kindle update incoming with parents and kids set to benefit the most

Owners of the £89 Kindle will soon be receiving an automatic update that will improve their overall reading experience, with parents and children in particular needing to pay note.

Along with adding a higher contrast font that Amazon claims makes its Kindle experience a more authentic paper-book experience, parents will be able to control what their children can access on their Kindle in terms of the experimental web browser, archived items and the Kindle store. 

Don’t worry kids, it’s not all bad news. The update means the £89 Kindle will also be able to support children’s books with Kindle Text Pop-Up art, as well lay out comic books in a panel view, similar to actual comic books.

Other books with complicated page designs and formats will also be laid out correctly with the addition of Kindle Format 8.

The over-the-air update will be available over a Wi-Fi connection during June, with Kindle Text Pop-Up and comic books also being added to the Kindle store during the same period.

Do you have an £89 Kindle? What do you think to the sound of the update?
