Missing the page turn button from the side.....
, May 4, 2012
This review is from: Kindle Touch 3G, Free 3G + Wi-Fi, 6" E Ink Display - includes Special Offers & Sponsored Screensavers (Electronics)
After my Kindle Keyboard 3G suffered an early and undeserved death during a hiking trip in the Outback I have ordered the Kindle Touch 3G Wifi which is marketed as top of the range. The gadget arrived amazingly fast -3days! and all looked nice and awesome - just as it was my Keyboard- until I encountered a serious letdown.. Touch is touch - there are no buttons and the side page turn button was also taken away..Noooooooooo..Gone are my days of being able to read - meaning hold and turn -with the same hand. Why? Cos I am a lefty! (left handed that is). Holding the Keyboard in my left hand I could press the page turn button on the left side with my thumb and voala turned the page. The button is gone on the Touch and only by tapping on the right will the page turn forward - so I need to use my clumsy right hand as well ..bye bye reading with one hand...I am devastated that the button is gone, seems the Kindle Touch is now just an other device ignoring lefties :((( Why amazon why?
Moreover the gadget is really touchy. The touchscreen is super sensitive, ooops gone are days when I could wipe away a dust particle on the screen whilst reading...thingy turns the page immediately..Also it is tooo narrow, hard to hold it properly -especially if you are lefty with big fingers- as my finger touches the screen and it wants to turn turn turn..
But it is a good reader, the best e-ink one can find the easiest menu but just bring the side buttons back pleeeeeeaaaassseeeee
