- Display / readability The same beautiful and responsive Pearl E-Ink screen as the previous gen.
- Battery life Only a "week" compared with it's predecessor (now dubbed the Kindle Keyboard). Still insanely long.
- Store and selection of titles Nothing new here. The best selection and experience.
- Ease of use Haven't used the Touch yet, so I don't know how it compares to that. But easy to use all around. Page turning buttons are perfect.
- Document support Don't really use or care about this feature. But it would be nice if there was a document syncing app built-in so you didn't have to worry about emailing docs.
- Storage capacity While 2GB is nothing in this day and age, it's a reader. And "1400" books seems like more than I'll ever read in my lifetime, let alone need to store.
- Durability No comments
- Design and form factor Very nice, clean industrial design. The slate color is okay, probably would've preferred a darker black. It's not "gorgeous," but it's handsome and classy.
- Portability (size / weight) LOVE the smaller size and increased lightness. This is the first time I've felt like I could really "pocket" my Kindle (have had the two prior generation).
