With its Kindle Scribe, Amazon seeks to seduce an audience that oscillates between the electronic reader and the touch pad. Thus, the Kindle Scribe has a 10.2-inch panel with a resolution of 300 pixels per inch, which is very comfortable, but also has features common to other readers such as anti-reflective treatment and automatic front lighting. The device is especially equipped with a stylus that does not require any charge, but facilitates note taking.
