The Kindle has come a long way since it first debuted nearly a decade ago. And Amazon keeps making it better. But seeing is believing, not just reading about it.
Recently I happened upon a co-worker reading in the break room at work. I saw him reading on a new Kindle. I asked which model it was because it looked nice. He said the $79 one, which is the regular Kindle. Now I know I’ve said I’m trading mine back in because I just don’t use it, but his device was great. I mean, I didn’t expect the base model to appear so advanced. The text is so much more clear than mine. The screen is much easier on the eyes. And it appeared about as thin as a strand of hair.
And of course Amazon just announced their newest edition. All this is simply to say that the “regular” Kindle is a great device, so I can’t imagine how superb the more advanced models are.
PS: Still not using mine or buying a new one.
One thought on “On Kindle”
New on the market doesn’t necessarily mean better, unfortunately but I do enjoy my Kobo, especially since I’m using public transportation for the next few months. It’s so much lighter to carry, and takes up a lot less space in my fanny pack or backpack.
