As I have written in this blog many times, I don't like the screen saver and book cover capability of the Kindle. If I was more confident of my abilities I would have "jail breaked" it a long time ago and uploaded my own screen saver images. Again, why not tailor the screen saver to show the book jackets of the books I am reading? Why not have images of my favorite authors. Nothing against Emily Post, but why must she show up on my Kindle?
I'm sure something else, maybe something that isn't even listed will pique my interest once the new Touch arrives, but for now, I choose book covers.
Second reason why I'm excited? This site, Top Ten Reviews, suggested that the Touch was a solid 9.73 out of 10 in terms of e-readers on the market.
If you enjoy reading and are always looking for your next good read, we recommend purchasing the Kindle Touch 3G. The portable eBook reader is second to none in the features and tools that count: readability, size, ease of use, free internet, battery life, library selection, speakers and fast page turns. Hands down, the Kindle Touch 3G is our clear winner and choice for the best eBook reader.
As I said a year or so ago, I like my Kindle if only because it forces me to read. It focuses my mind on reading and helps me filter out everything else. Based on this review, it sounds like the Touch will provide that same level of focus.
