Kindle Touch on sale for $75 at Staples

Not sure if every Staples has it for this price, but I was just in our local Staples and they had the Kindle Touch on clearance for $75.

Might be a good deal for somebody who prefers to have audio over the integrated light of the PaperWhite.

I think they have the basic Kindle model on clearance for that price. I couldn't find Kindle Touch or Kindle Touch 3G anywhere.

It was most definitely the touch, and they had them on display. I played with it a while because I wanted to get a feel for the touch interface in anticipation of my pending PaperWhite. I found the keyboard to be much better than expected, and actually just as fast [and maybe faster] as the physical keyboard on my K3, so one concern gone. I expect the capacitive touchscreen keyboard to be even better.

The touch interface is really nice and well calibrated. I rarely miss what I was aiming to highlight with my fat finger, unlike the POS Android phone I've got. On my phone I more often than not hit the wrong key. But the Touch is great for highlighting and selecting, much better than the Fire was.

I definitely find the soft keyboard on the Touch to be faster - and more accurate - to use than the physical keyboard on the K3.

My Touch is my favorite ereader right now (I sure that will change soon ) I wonder though why Amazon completely discontinued it after only 10 months. Effectively for a period of around 2 months, no touch screen Kindles were/are available directly from Amazon.
