Kindle Paperwhite

I bought my first Kindle a month ago. It was the Paperwhite model and I was less than thrilled with it.

Light weight
Long battery life

Sluggish Page turns
Screen resolution troubled me
Screen brightness not consistent across the page (slight purple haze near bottom of screen).

Let me elaborate. I own an iPad and have been using smartphones since 2007. I’m accustomed to high resolution displays with fast page turns.

With the Kindle Paperwhite I could see the page redraw and it was a distraction. It was slow enough to cause me to hesitate flipping back a page to check something. I also found the font wanting, I was never quite happy with the way it looked.

Anyway, I return the Paperwhite after reading a review of the Voyage model. I bought the Voyage and you can read my review of that unit.

Hint: I liked it!
