For avid reading: Kindle Paperwhite or Kindle (2012)?
I'm looking to get myself a kindle, but am undecided between the two. In France the prices are 129 euros and 79 euros respectively, so I'm leaning towards the non-paperwhite version. Plus, the estimated shipment date for the paperwhite currently stands at 4th February. I currently have an ipad 2, which I only really use for the kindle app and comics and am planning to sell/give to my dad. The kindle app is great on it, but reading on that screen for too long hurts my eyes.
Reasons in favour of the Kindle 2012:
- Longer battery life (I read for long periods of time at a go)
- Physical page turn buttons
- Reading at night
- Better quality screen (?)
- Looks more modern and sleek
PS: I couldn't decide whether to put this here or in Tablets, apologies if it's the wrong section!
