The old maketh way for the new and the old saying seems to be ringing true for the Kindle Touch right now. The Kindle Paperwhite is Amazon’s current flagship e-reader and is is proving to be one of the bestsellers. Amazon is already hard pressed to keep up with the demand so that there already is a demand backlog that range from 4 to even 6 weeks. With the holiday shopping season almost round the corner, it now seems Amazon is keen to devote all its resources to the Kindle Paperwhite and the Kindle Fire tablet range. As such, phasing out the old Kindle Touch does make sense though Amazon hasn’t stated anything on this yet.
We have already seen the last of the Kindle DX, probably the best large screen e-reader we have had and Amazon does not seem interested in developing a successor to it anytime soon. The only other e-book reader options that Amazon offers include the Kindle Keyboard 3G priced at $139 and the Kindle that costs an even cheaper $69. Both are excellent from the price point of view though lack the extensive list of features that the Paperwhite boasts of, which means its the Kindle Paperwhite to opt for for the best e-book reading experience.
