How do you find the contrast? I've heard the contrast seems worse because of the silver bezel. How is the pocket-fit in your opinion? Have you tried using it with instapaper? Can you click on hyperlinks?

The bezel on the Touch isn't silver - it's a metallic grey; quite a dark grey. I find the Touch to be overall a much "slicker" device than the KK. It feels much more solidly built, and just generally "classier".

I agree with HarryT on the classy front - the contrast is perfect, and the bezel in no way affects it.

You would need a jacket pocket, I haven't tried, if I am challenged for space I switch to the Kindle app on my iPhone, if I am going to read a lot I take some kind of bag.

I have no experience of Instapaper, but the links on the Amazon website respond perfectly well. The touch screen is super sensitive, and very accurate.

It's a great product, I always felt the KK never quite felt as well built as my old (pre-touch) Sony, but this one does.

Some days ago I won a KTouch at a local Writing Contest and I had the chance to use it for several days. Compared with the K3 which I have had it since June 2011, it's too small for me and I missed the landscape orientation and the keyboard. In the end, I gave up and passed it to my girlfriend. My K3 is god-like.
