The Kindle Paperwhite is the 2nd Generation of the device, released in late 2013. If the Kindle has the ability to power on, you can verify that you have a 2nd Generation Kindle Paperwhite by clicking on Settings and then Device Info. Once this is done, a 16-digit code will be displayed, if this code begins with “B0D4” or “90D4” your device is a 2nd Generation Kindle Paperwhite. The Kindle Paperwhite differs from other Kindles by not having the 5-way controller present in other Kindle Models, and by having a built-in light that can be adjusted manually.
The First Generation Kindle Paperwhite model was introduced in October 1, 2012, by Amazon with the release being centered around the addition of a manually adjusted light level. This model was well received, so a year later (September 30, 2013) the Second Generation Kindle Paperwhite was released. The Second Generation Kindle PaperWhite was released with a 6’’ Screen, a 1GHz Processor, 4GB of Storage, and the ability to connect to wifi. This model was also well received.
The backside of the device contains a label that lists the model number as DP75SDI. It is available in black.
