The E-ink display of the new Kindle boasts a contrast ratio of 50 percent better than that of the original, with 20 percent faster page turns.

The screen contrast and the words are looking sharper. Predictably by holding the Kindle screen nearer to a window the texts on the page will be looking sharper.

The new kindle has the more space for storage which can store app 3500 books and battery life (with the wireless off up to one month or with wireless on up to 10 days) of the first Kindle. The biggest new feature of this new Kindle is Wi-Fi and it costs just $139. The Combo Kindle, 3G/Wi-Fi still sold at a price of $189.  If you ask me this is quite considerable price difference. The Kindle is getting closer to a price of $99.

A color e-paper tech is still too dodgy — and costly — to use for the Kindle, and as well, for the “immense Majority” of book readers, a sharp black and white is a “feature and not a bug.” A Touchscreen which consist of touch sensitive glasses at the top of the E-ink display, which might leads to lesser screen contrast — and since the users mostly click on the next page, using the touch would be a problem than it’s worth.

Rather than going for a higher features which sacrifices the quality of the display or inflate the price tag. The black and white e-reader is the one which is smaller and easier to read (Wi-Fi only) and also cheaper.
