- Display / readability With the upgraded resolution from previous generations, it's crisper than ever.
- Battery life In my short time, its more than adequate even with the light on bright most of the time. Other reviews point to similar performance.
- Store and selection of titles I do think Amazon has the best ecosystem, but I'd be nice if I was also able to not be pigeonholed. Not a big deal yet and Amazon has fair prices.
- Ease of use Straight forward.
- Document support comes with a user guide built-in, and even gives you a nice walk-through when you first fire it up!
- Storage capacity Look, I don't plan on having 1000 books on my Kindle that I'm actively reading at a time. So I'm perfectly fine with 2GB. I can always re-download or swap.
- Durability I don't feel the need to "protect" it. It seems very well built and solid.
- Design and form factor While it is touch, I do enjoy using the page turn buttons. The "holding" space for your thumb is smaller too. However, I love the feel of the back.
- Portability (size / weight) I can put this in my pocket. It is a bit heavier than the Keyboard, but far from unreasonable.
- Capacitive Touchscreen (IR was wonky)
- higher resolution
- The screen isn't as deep inset from the bezel, therefore less shadow. Sure it was a slight shadow on the Touch, but it did bother me from time-to-time. Its one of those things you can't "un-see".
- I enjoy the lack of the home button. I found myself "playing" with it on my Touch.
- The power button is a "tougher" click. Also a welcome addition. I'd accidentally touch the power button on my Touch.
Overall, I love my new Kindle and look forward to each use. A worthy upgrade from any e-reader. If you've been waiting for a fantastic e-reader to buy, this one is definitely it.
