I concur with what Alisa has described. Although I am admittedly a techo/gadget lover, I simply want to read with my ereader, whatever it may be.
I love the end-user simplicity and quality of e-ink that makes reading a very enjoyable experience. The wireless capability on my Kindles is outstanding and, most important, gives the reader freedom and instant enjoyment. Recently sitting on a beach in Hawaii, I was able to enjoy reading numerous samples and, in a matter of seconds, had my favorites delivered wirelessly without ever shifting positions in the sand. One click. Simple. Fantastic. Or waiting to board a flight one can have an unlimited amount of new material delivered in seconds. All of this possible without concern for a viable Wi-Fi connection or draining of battery.
E-ink and battery life are priorities for me and with wireless, not wi-fi, one does not have to compromise. If I need Wi-fi/Internet, I use my phone, netbook, or laptop. My Kindles are for reading.
