Question
Audio
I know the Kindle Paperwhite does not support audiobooks, but does it support audio of any kind i.e MP3? Also if it does, does it have a headphone socket?

Hi,

Yes the Kindle remains on the last page read in the book when you close it. The Kindle also has a bookmarking feature if needed.

Question
Can you turn the backlight off?
I've heard that a lit screen strains the eyes like a computer, I wanted the Kindle Touch but they've stopped selling it.

E-ink is not the same as an LCD, it's designed to be kinder to your eyes. The gentle light makes it a more comfortable experience.

But yes you can turn the back light off, and you can adjust the light level to something you find comfortable.

Hi, thanks for your question.

I have checked with the manufacturer and I can confirm the Kindle Paperwhite has a touchscreen display, not buttons.

Thank you for using Question and Answer.

Yes you can browse the internet freely, but its only an experimental browser and is very slow. If you wanted a kindle device to both read and use the internet much better id suggest a kindle fire.

Answer(s)
Hi, KenE.

I'm very sorry, but the Kindle Paperwhite doesn't support audio books, or have any audio capabilities. To listen to audio books you'll need to consider the Kindle Fire/Kindle Fire HD (http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Searc...) I hope this helps.

Have a great day!
