How about Kindle white paper?

Can they download apps?

Yes.
Yes.
No. They are *not* tablets.

PDFs are really difficult to read on the e-ink kindles.

why?!!! That is the only way I can read Chinese books on the Kindle... Can whitepaper do it?

They all display Chinese characters. Why do your books have to be PDFs?

because I am afraid I can't type in Chinese, so I can't download Chinese books on the kindle. So I would download PDF on line and then input into Kindle.

By the way, do you know whether grey screen ($69) one has light for reading? Whitepaper has light for reading at night right?

Only the Paperwhite has a light. The other one needs either sunlight or artificial light of some sort.

Why can't you buy kindle books in Chinese? There are lots of them.

The Basic Kindle does not have a light - only the Paperwhite does.

Even Amazon USA lists over 3400 books for Kindle in Chinese.
