Amazon Japan launches manga e-reader

The Kindle Paperwhite Manga edition features faster page turning and extended storage.

Comics and manga have been available for Kindle purchase for some time now.  However, one problem with manga is that their all-image content can take up a lot of file space.  The new Manga edition offers 32GB of storage, faster page turning, a fast forward feature and a feature that allows a full screen zoom on individual comic panels.

The special features do not, as yet, work on western comics.

There’s a YouTube video demonstrating the features of the new Kindle.
