300PPI Amazon Kindle Paperwhite

Matthew Panzarino, TechCrunch:

Amazon is now preparing a new Kindle Paperwhite for release in early Q2 of next year, TechCrunch has learned. The marquee feature of the new device is a high-resolution 300 ppi screen that will bring the company’s e-reader displays back into technical parity with devices from competitors like Kobo.

Other bits of this rumor: flush front screen, matte glass, lighter, squeezable haptic buttons, and ambient light sensor. If this rumor pans out the experience of reading on a 300-ppi Amazon Kindle Paperwhite should be most excellent.
