There’s also a folding leather protective cover bundled in the mix. This model has a 6 inch display, built in reading light and it relies on a flat panel technology. The touch response is improved compared to the predecessors and the newcomer is now lighter at 180 grams. It measures 7.6 mm in thickness and integrates a light sensor, with auto backlight setup role.
Inside, the Voyage has a 1320 mAh Li-Ion battery, a 3.8V unit, that should offer you many days of reading time.
