Still the Best Kindle
1 September, 2014
It's interesting to review products a couple of years after their introduction.
This is still the best Kindle if you ask me.
The paperwhite has an awesome display, and X-ray - which I consider totally nice to have, but NO SOUND!
It is strange how impoprtant sound, and the ability to play mp3's becomes once you can't have it.
This is truly an all-in-one device.
Especially on long flights, the ability to play music files is not nice to have anymore - it is required.
If I had a paperwhite, I would also have to carry around an mp3 player, two devices, more wires etc., not good in an airline seat.
I would like to buy the paperwhite, but won't until sound is on board.
And believe it or don't I actually use the text to speech function - something else the paperwhite doesn't have.
On top of it all, the built-in speakers deliver a pretty damned good stereo sound for their size.
Are you listening Amazon?
PUT SOUND/PLAYBACK FUNCTIONALITY ON THE PAPERWHITE DAMMIT!
