Ligher, smaller, faster. That's how the new Kindle is introduced and sold. And it is; amazingly sma
ll to hold in the hand and very light. It was most annoying to know that the Kindle Touch isn't available in South Africa. I was passing through duty-free last week, and saw this version available, and decided what the hell.
I also got the official Kindle leather cover for it, which is outrageously priced by being a third of the price of the Kindle. Oh well.
I haven't read anything yet; saving that for December! But so far, quite impressive kit. Using the on-screen keyboard is quite difficult; but on an e-reader, I expect that you won't be doing that much.
