  • Q: Is this available without the ads?  (4 Answers)

    By Anonymous 

    • Best answerI have heard you can pay a monthly fee to get rid of the ads, but the only ad that I have seen is the book suggestion when you wake up the device. Once you swipe to turn on the ad goes away and the book comes up. Ads do not appear while you are reading. This is similar in all Kindle devices that I have owned.

  • Q: Does it have Audible and Whyspersinc capability? Audio jack or/and Bluetooth?  (6 Answers)

    By Ted 

    • Best answerWhispersync is Amazon's technology that lets readers switch “back and forth between a Kindle book and Audible professional narration - without ever losing your place.” The way it works is that you first buy the Kindle book, and then for Whispersync enabled books you can add the Audibile audiobook to the purchase. Yes it does have audible.com store on the device. All you need to do is to tap on the 3 vertical dots on the right side of the Home Screen. Then you will see the audible store. You can tap on the audible store, and you are there to purchase your audiobooks and then they will be downloaded onto the device upon purchase of them. It has a 3.5mm jack connector hole on the top of the device, so that you can connect your headphones/earbuds to the device (Bluetooth enabled headphones or earbuds). It has Bluetooth capabilities on the device as well. And here are the directions on how to connect: To listen to Audible books on your Kindle, you must first pair a Bluetooth audio device, such as headphones or speakers. There are two ways you can pair a Bluetooth audio device. Pairing a Bluetooth device when opening an audiobook: 1. Tap My Library from the Home screen, then tap Downloaded. 2. Tap on the audiobook you want to listen to. If you have not paired a Bluetooth device, you will receive a prompt to do so after the Play button is pressed. 3. Put your Bluetooth audio device into pairing mode. 4. Tap on the Bluetooth device you want to use. 5. Once the device is paired, the audiobook will play through that device. Pairing a Bluetooth device via Settings: 1. Put your Bluetooth audio device into pairing mode. 2. Tap My Library in the top left of the Home screen. Tap the Quick Actions icon on the toolbar, then tap All Settings. On the Settings page, tap Wi-Fi & Bluetooth, then Bluetooth devices. 3. If you have already downloaded an Audible book, open the book and tap No Bluetooth Connected to open the Bluetooth dialog.

    • Best answerYes it is backlit like a phone (or edge lit). It doesnt strain your eyes or keep you up at night like a phone. The brightness is also easily adjusted.

  • Q: Any idea if this will be released in white? Thanks!  (3 Answers)

    • Best answerHello: Amazon told me over the phone, that when they know when the White color version e-reader will come out, they will definitely let us all know. At this time, there is NO indication as to if or when the white color version e-reader will come out. So in the meantime, Amazon has the black (charcoal gray) version that has been out since Wednesday November 7, 2018. If you have further questions on this, you will need to contact Amazon Customer Service.

    • Best answerThe kindle page has ads as a screensaver, but not when you are reading the book. At least as far as my experience goes, I haven't seen ads pop up or anything.

    • Best answerIf you have previous Kindle, all your books are stored through your Amazon account--so that way if you need to replace your kindle it is easy to access on a new one. Your Kindle Library is accessible on any Kindle.

  • Q: Can you transfer purchases from Apple's IBooks to the Kindle or do I have to repurchase under the Kindle format?  (1 Answer)

    By swhmetta 

    • Best answerLook for the free software called “Calibre”. With a little bit of reading of the instructions you can easily convert your EPUB (iPad book format) books to the Kindle (MOBI file format) in a matter of seconds. It is free, and is perfectly legal in case you’re interested.
