Amazon’s new Kindle reader is out today. The improvements sound nice: It’s thinner (about the thickness of a magazine and thinner than an iPhone) and has a larger screen. The new screen displays shades of gray so text and images appear crisper. It sill has superfast 3G so you can download books quickly. The page turning buttons have been redesigned and are now located on both sides of the device and are harder to accidentally trigger, the page buttons were one of the things that people seemed the most dissatisfied with in the first model. The battery life has been improved and the page turns are faster. Did you know you can download and listen to audiobooks on the Kindle? And I thought I wanted one before.
This is very tempting, but I didn’t exactly spend a lot of time feeling the lack of a Kindle in my life over the last few months. Still, so very convenient.
