Ah, niche Kindles.... I like it. No word if this will be available in the US or other parts of the world at this time.

With literally billions of dollars in sales, manga is a huge business in Japan. So much so that Amazon has just released a ‘Manga Model’ Kindle Paperwhite to cater for this demographic.

At first glances, this is virtually identical to the mainstream model. But what sets it apart is that the ‘Manga Model’ comes with massively expanded storage – from 4GB to 32GB. Amazon also says that the speed in which it turns pages has increased by 33 percent.

By octupling the amount of memory, Amazon claims that this will be able to hold up to 700 Manga, which are significantly larger than ordinary books.

If not this exact thing, eventually the developments involved in it. Especially the memory.
