First of all, I was drawn to be a touch device. All previous versions included a physical QWERTY keyboard, something that ultimately only use a few times and add a space and extra size to the device. I was looking for a compact ebook, paperback size and both the Kindle and the Kindle Touch 4 fulfilled this task. The funny thing is that your screen is not touch-I am not aware that technology in the electronic-ink displays, so it uses a very strange solution to get it.
The framework Touch screen Kindle is more pronounced than that of other models, and this is because that has a network of infrared emitters and receivers, designed to detect where you are tapping on the screen. We should add that the system detects two simultaneous pulses that obviously can be done with any item, whether the fingers, gloved fingers, a pencil or whatever super comfortable when you’re reading with gloves or do not want to mess the screen.
The rest of the device is very simple, only has a single button on the front, used to take the title menu, and nothing else, the other functions are done through the menus on the touch screen. At its base is the on / off or sleep mode, perhaps too far out for easy press by mistake. Next door is the headphone jack, for those who like to listen to music while reading. Finally, the micro USB connector which is used to recharge your battery and to connect it. Rarely seen, but on that basis there is a LED that indicates the battery status when it is recharging. We are behind the metal contact area, for if you put the official cover with light, which feeds on the Kindle. Also the two external speakers.
Its salient features, plus its extras over the other model are:
- It weighs only 213 grams, divided into dimensions of 17 × 12 cm, with only 1 cm. thick. You feel very comfortable in the hand and size matches what has become a paperback book.
- It has a compact, without a single screw-might be a catch because they say that if you break it open, and the back has a touch slip.
- The screen is 6 inches and at first glance may seem small, but its text quality is impressive. Recall that is a screen with electronic ink-E-Ink, so it does not reflect the direct light and the viewing angle is perfect. Think like you’re reading on a printed paper, almost white-grayish with a tint.
