Order 2 Kindle Paperwhites last week, one for me and the other for the wife’s birthday. I currently had a Kindle KB3 which she was using and I was reading on my Nexus 7 using the Kindle app.
I liked my KB3 but the Kindle PW blows it away as long as you can live with a touch screen which I can, smartphone, Nexus 7 and a Asus A500 I am no stranger to the touch screen and I actually prefer it to the buttons on the Kindle KB3. The wife likes the touch screen better too. I also like the fact that the screen lighting can be adjusted for just about any lighting condition.
The onboard keyboard is much nigher that the one on the Kindle KB3 it is much easier to type on for me anyway. The predictions leave a little to be desired but you don’t use the keyboard that much anyway, or least I don’t.
The Kindle Paperwhite doesn’t have any audio at all, which I will assume keeps the price down and also the weight. This is okay with me I didn’t use that on the Kindle KB3 anyway. If I wanted to listen to an audio book I will use my phone or Nexus 7, it will still sync the last position with the Kindle PW so I can switch back and forth.
I am probably with in 40 pages of finishing my 1st book and it and it is now my go to reading device.
