The newest Kindle e-reader is called the Kindle Paperwhite. It's very similar to the Kindle Touch except that the background of the screen is white rather than gray and it has a faint back lit glow to it. Though my experience with the Paperwhite is limited, it appears to be more responsive when navigating and turning pages than its predecessors, the keyboard Kindle and Kindle Touch. The Paperwhite's back lit screen is made to be read in the dark but also handles just fine in the light. The white screen color is more pleasing to the eye and more closely resembles the pages of a real book. With the Kindle Paperwhite, Amazon shows why they are the leader in the e-reader market!
