It is a different beast, and I may find myself keeping a micro-cloth close at hand like I do with my iPad. Then again, maybe not. Time will tell.

Would you like me to change the title of your thread to Kindle Touch & Kindle Paperwhite—How Are They For Reading? or something similar?
Now that there are real photos from real owners of the KPW, we can say without a doubt that the KPW is a fingerprint magnet. It's a shame too. Maybe if Amazon did not use the capacitance touch layer and stuck with IR touch.
