Amazon announces Kindle Scribe, the first Kindle with support for inking

Amazon Kindle Scribe

Amazon today announced Kindle Scribe, the first Kindle that supports inking. The new Kindle Scribe features a 10.2-inch, 300 pixels per inch (ppi), Paperwhite display, and supports inking using the included pen that never needs charging.

Kindle Scribe can be bought with a Basic or Premium pen option. Both pens deliver precision inking, and magnetically attach to the side of the device. They also support a variety of line widths, a highlighter tool, eraser tools, and an undo tool. The Premium Pen will exclusively have a dedicated eraser on top and a customizable shortcut button.

New software features in Kindle Scribe:

  • New digital sticky notes on Kindle Scribe allow you to easily add handwritten notes to millions of books—with notes and highlights automatically organized in one place to keep pages clutter-free.
  • You can also journal or take notes using a variety of templates, including to-do lists for tracking tasks and lined paper for meeting notes.
  • All notebooks are automatically saved and backed up to the cloud for free, and, coming in early 2023, they will also be accessible via the Kindle app.
  • With the Send-to-Kindle feature, you can import personal documents from your computer or phone to Kindle Scribe and write directly on PDF documents.
  • You can also import and create handwritten sticky notes in Microsoft Word documents, web articles, and other document formats with adjustable font sizes and layout.
  • From early 2023, you will be able to send documents to Kindle Scribe directly from within Microsoft Word.

Kindle Scribe is available for preorder today from just $339 and will be available later this year.
