Kindle 1月份或有重大更新:让你的Kindle变身儿童版

Kindle上一次更新的是5.12.3版本,更新的内容并不多,只加入了一个图书馆徽章,也不是什么重要的功能,很多朋友都会选择不更新,不过在1月份即将到来的Kindle的下一次更新,静读君推荐你一定要试试!

通常来说,Kindle固件什么时候发布?发布的什么内容?在固件发布前外界都是很难得到消息的,不过这次不一样;

早在几个月前,亚马逊发布儿童版Kindle的时候,我们就知道了,亚马逊计划将在2020年1月份发布一个关于在普通Kindle上普及儿童版功能的固件更新。

刚刚,亚马逊发布了一款全新Kindle,这次瞄准了这一群体  

儿童版Kindle 回顾

在19年10月份的时候,亚马逊在现有的三条产品线之外,又发布了一款新品:Kindle Kids Edition(Kindle 儿童版)

这款儿童版在硬件配置上与入门级的青春版基本一致:6英寸屏幕、167ppi分辨率、8G存储、带背光;

最明显不同的地方就是,儿童版Kindle的外观可能更活泼,儿童版Kindle自带4款针对孩子设计的保护套,分别是蓝色、紫色、彩虹鸟和空间站,而且还有普通Kindle不具备的壁纸选择功能,它有一套专为儿童设计的锁屏壁纸。

当然,儿童版与其他Kindle的差别主要体现在软件与服务上,这也正是固件更新所可以实现的功能;

其实亚马逊的儿童服务一直是很出名的,亚马逊的另一硬件产品:Kindle Fire ,其针对小孩子提供的服务和功能一直是平板设备中极优秀的,而现在亚马逊打算将这一优势移植到Kindle上。

目前,儿童版的功能只能在儿童版Kindle 上可以体验到,儿童版Kindle甚至还没有国行,在国内想买都买不到,还需要海淘;而且再花一份青春版的钱买一个儿童版Kindle似乎也不太划得来;

不过如果能在现有的Kindle上通过固件获取儿童版的服务,那就真的就是省事又省钱了!而根据国内外各方媒体的消息,亚马逊计划在2020年1月份通过固件更新的方式,让其他Kindle都可以实现儿童版Kindle的功能!

那么以后,有孩子的朋友就可以和你的小孩共用一台Kindle看书啦。

固件内容提前一览

不过问题又来了,针对儿童的读书服务指的又是哪些服务呢?又是否值得更新呢?固件更新暂时还没正式发布,不过儿童版的服务我们可以先一睹为快:

     FreeTime Unlimited

这应该是儿童版最主要的服务了,也一定是“儿童固件”更新最主要的内容,它是亚马逊在 2012 年推出的一项儿童订阅服务,已经在亚马逊的另一硬件Kindle Fire 上广泛应用并大受好评;

它的功能大致可以分为两部分:

①、它提供并推荐适合孩子阅读的书籍;

亚马逊与迪士尼、漫威 、Nickeloden、PBS 等内容商进行合作,提供 1000 多本儿童类书籍,包括诸如《哈利·波特》系列、《霍比特人》、《阿特米斯》、《纳尼亚传奇》全集等作品;

而且它能根据儿童的年龄和性别进行推荐,选择适合该年龄段孩子阅读的书籍推荐给孩子。

②、为孩子屏蔽不适合的内容;

家长可以对孩子的阅读进行监测和控制,一方面,家长可以控制孩子的阅读时间,防止长时间使用,而且还可以查看孩子的阅读进度,为孩子设置阅读目标;

另一方面,家长还可以设置孩子可以阅读的内容,比如设备屏蔽掉某一类型的书籍不会被推荐给孩子或者不会被搜索到。

作为一种订阅服务, FreeTime Unlimited是需要收费的,订阅之后,FreeTime Unlimited上提供的所有儿童类书籍都是可以免费阅读的,孩子想看哪本就可以看哪本,不需要再购买。

FreeTime Unlimited的收费标准是$ 2.99 /月,购买儿童版Kindle 是免费赠送1年的,固件更新的话,应该不会免费。

FreeTime Unlimited 订阅服务在中亚暂时还没有上架,不过如果Kindle真的发布了相关的固件的话,或许服务也可能会同步上线,只能说,静读君还是有点期待的!

     吸引孩子阅读的趣味性设计

除了FreeTime Unlimited 服务之外,儿童版Kindle还有很多为了激发孩子阅读乐趣而设计的功能,固件更新应该也会加入这些功能吧。

①、模糊搜索

因为孩子的词汇量是不能和成年人比的,因此在儿童版的搜索检索功能更简单,即使关键词的拼写不那么精确,也可以准确搜到想要的内容。

②、生词卡片

孩子在词典查找过的单词,会自动保存为识字卡,方便儿童随时查看和学习。

③、儿童壁纸

亚马逊设计了一套适合儿童的新锁屏壁纸;

④、奖励系统

为了激发和培养孩子的阅读兴趣,亚马逊设计了一套将读书目标游戏化的成就奖励系统,达成一定的阅读目标,就可以解锁专门的成就徽章。

相比订阅服务,这些趣味性的小功能就容易实现多了,如果真的有更新的话,那么模糊搜索、壁纸、生词卡片以及阅读成就就我们不远啦!

写在最后

现在的孩子基本从小就是接触手机等电子产品,相比在手机上玩王者荣耀、吃鸡,每一个家长肯定都更希望小孩能安静地沉浸在书籍的天地里;

虽然说,靠只能读书的Kindle 跟手机、iPad抢孩子的注意力难度确实很大,但是,不得不说,作为Kindle的一个固件,如果能实现上述的儿童版服务,那绝对是最有意义的一次固件更新了。

而且Kindle也不是没有优势,首先,墨水屏不伤眼的特点就能很好的保护孩子的眼睛;而且,“儿童版”固件可能也会带有上述的一些针对小孩子的趣味性的设计,更能引起孩子对阅读的兴趣!

而且,最主要的是,不需要额外花钱买新设备,固件更新肯定是不收费的,FreeTime Unlimited 如果有应该是需要付费订阅的,不过也不算很贵;

目前最大的问题应该是,黑白色的屏幕不适合小孩子看绘本,只能希望2020年亚马逊也能发布彩色屏Kindle,这样就很完美了!

怎么样?对于这次固件更新,你有没有很期待呢?
