Kindle 3 Rumors – Touch Screen
I’m stilling seeing lots of rumors on the web that report the Kindle 3 will have a touch screen. I’m still wary of this idea. There’s no doubt that a touch screen interface will greatly improve how we navigate about. My largest concern is that I’m going to spend too much time wiping the fingerprints from the screen.
There are a couple of ways around this… and no, I do not simply need to wash my hands more often.
Perhaps the Kindle 3 will use a type of cover or film that doesn’t show fingerprints. Maybe a stylus could be employed. I don’t see this being a popular decision among Kindle users, but it would certainly lend a greater degree of precision and totally eliminate any worry of fingerprints.
Guys, I don’t know why I hate fingerprints so much. I just do.
Among other things, each instance of the touch screen rumor I’ve read is paired with the additional rumor of a 2009 release date. That just seems ridiculous to me, but I guess Amazon could have kept the forge glowing and hammers ringing for another expedient next-generation delivery.
