local best buy to start selling kindle 4 tomorrow!

Just returned from best buy after noticing all the stores near me had kindle 4 in stock..unfortunately they can't put them out till tomorrow (sat), but I figured I'd post incase anyone else was waiting for bb to get them in stock as well.

I hope when the Touches come out, the local stores are just as fast to get them.

I want to have a look at the Touch(WiFi) before I buy one.

The screens will look different in bright store lighting than they will in your home. Just be aware of that.

Yes, but you can compare them to your K3. More data for the forum here.

I saw one at my local Best Buy tonight. It was much smaller than I imagined. Super light as well. Can't say I liked the tiny page turn buttons. The contrast looked about same as a Kindle 3 next to it but as mentioned above with the lighting in there they all look different than at home.

I went to Best Buy tonight and they had the k3 and k4 side by side. On the k4 it seemed like the background had a brownish color to it, whereas the k3 has the greyish color. I think the text on the k4 seemed more bold compared to the k3. I like the background color on the k3 better.

you can make the k3 have a more bold darker text by using Calibre and the Kindle collection and downloading fonts. Look to the Calibre forum to ask about appropriate fonts.

Modifying the fonts and margins using the calibre Collections plugin works on both the K3 and the K4.
