Kindle Touch–Quick Take

My Kindle Fire traveled in the same UPS truck with my new Kindle Touch e-ink reader today so I thought I’d take a minute to give my very brief impression of the new Kindle Touch also.


The Kindle Touch is a bit smaller, a bit lighter and without many buttons.  Having used the iPad Kindle app for the past several months after over a year of the Kindle Keyboard I was already mostly used to the page turning and other navigation of the touch screen.  I can report to you that I really love the new Kindle Touch.  It’s a small step up from the other Kindle e-readers in my opinion but one that makes this e-ink reader just perfect for my long-term reads of books.  I’ll still use a tablet for web browsing, newspaper reading and magazine reading, but the e-ink reader is the obvious winner for in-depth reading of novels and the like.  So far this new Kindle has a lot to love an not much to dislike.  I’ll provide a more complete review soon.
