  • No touchscreen support
  • No EPUB support makes the Kindle incompatible with rival eBook stores unless a format converter is subsequently used
  • Battery life may be up to one month, but web browsing can kill it in a few days
  • E-Ink display has better contrast and refresh rates than its predecessor, but there is still a short delay in turning pages
  • No carry case supplied as standard
  • No expandable memory (4GB internal storage should be ample)
  • MP3 player rudimentary and playback limited to order files were transferred to the device
  • Kindle store is vast, but major omissions still exist
  • No screen backlight so night time reading requires a light
