Kindle Update

The Verge has an exclusive news item about Amazon’s new “paperwhite” e-ink Kindle, this year’s replacement for the Kindle Touch. It’s a small book reader with e-ink (non-LCD) display, backlit to give the appearance of white paper and ability to read with it in the dark.

So, to update my earlier piece about the iPad “mini,” where I mentioned the super book-reader-only Kindle: if you’re looking for such a beast, buy this one.
