As a European avid Kindle user, I was happy to anticipate the launch of a new Kindle line along with the rest of the world. I love my Kindle Keyboard to death, and still feel it's one of the slickest games in town.
When I finally got my father to give this e-reader malarkey a try a week ago, there was no question, a top-of-the-line Kindle was what would turn this bookworm over to e-reading, I was sure of it.
So today, imagine the dampening in my excitement when I learned that not only would the out-of-stock (naturally, ahead of the announcement) Touch NOT be immediately be replaced by in-stock Kindle Paperwhite, but only in a month, but also, us European readers (and pretty much anyone outside of the US) have an "indefinite" ETA. Until then, our (decidedly lackluster-by-comparison) only option is the bargain-basement version Kindle for $89.
Come on, Amazon, you can do better than this. Show some support to the geeks across the world who would love nothing better than to evangelize for your (superior) product!
