I finally bit the bullet and bought a Kindle Touch – 6”. It arrives Wednesday. Why? My Samsung 10.1” tablet is amazing – with the Kindle and Zinio (magazines) apps – but it simply doesn’t work in the sun. I find myself burying my head under a beach towel or seeking shade; and even then it is a super strain to read. Don’t even try it with polarized sun glasses.
With a few trips on the very near horizon – a beach capable reading device was needed. Someone needs to invent a tablet LCD that works outside. Although it seems to be getting closer.
