|The third generation Amazon Kindle features a 6-inch screen, a keyboard, has 4G capabilities, and is Wi-Fi enabled to let you browse and shop for e-books. This Kindle has a larger memory than earlier versions so you can store more books at once. The lightweight reader easily tucks into a bag or large pocket and the back of the device is rubberized, making it easy to grip. The screen provides greater contrast than earlier Kindles, making it easier to see. The battery on the 3rd generation Kindle is long-lasting, providing up to a month of reading time before needing to be recharged.|
