Though Manga fans have been able to read the Japanese comics on e-readers for some time, the new Kindle Paperwhite Manga Model is the first e-reader to specifically have Manga in mind. Considering the immense popularity of the medium in Japan, it should come as no surprise that Amazon has released this product for the Japanese market.
Ostensibly, there's little difference between the Kindle Paperwhite Manga Model and the original model. The devices are the same size and have the same screen resolution and black and white displays. However, the main differentiation is that the Kindle Paperwhite Manga Model has 32 GB of data compared to the original model's 4 GB. Since Manga takes up far more hard drive space than novels, the bigger storage drive means that fans can hold the same amount of Manga as literature lovers hold novels.
