Kindle Fire 7" 1st Gen = 1 pound, 4.0 ounces

The Paperwhite is really light and easy to hold sitting in a chair without any desk or table. The Kindle Fire really needs to be placed on a desk in its stand and not held.
I'm a little shocked as to how heavy the PW is actually. My Sony 650, even though it is a metal not plastic reader, only weighs 10.55 oz with the Sony case. Taking into account the problems people seem to be having with the PW, and not being able to easily return it if I buy one, (I am in the UK), I think I'll stick with Sony and get the T, it only weighs 5.78 oz without case. I am disappointed with the PW.
