Summary: I bought the Kindle Touch to assist in my studies, and allow me to pursue reading books (it's difficult to carry around study material and books). This little device is fantastic! It fits in my cargo pocket, so I bring it everywhere I go. The screen on this device is crazy, seriously. It looks like you're reading off of paper. I can't really comment on how this device would compare to competition (like the Nook), but people generally like the Kindle better.
Summary: Am very happy with this. The battery life is incredible, am able to use the Wifi also. I love to read on the go, i.e. doctors office etc., so this is great for me. Also like the size, it is easy to slip into a pocket.
Summary: Love it. Third kindle, dropped last two. They don't bounce well. Have 1500+ books. Recommended to family and friends. Take it with me. Great way to spend a few free minutes. So many great covers to protect it.
Summary: I bought this product to replace a tablet computer i was using as an e-reader. Upon receiving my slightly used kindle touch i had zero problems registering it with my amazon account and found the learning process to be quick and easy. It was also quite easy to transfer all my books from my other tablet as well as install updated firmware using instructions from the amazon website.
