Have you had a chance to compare it to an iPad? (Of course, a more equal comparison would be between a Nexus 7 and an iPad Mini.)

So some of them had squeaky back panels from the factory? I thought I'd just sprung the clips when I rebuilt it to replace a cracked screen. Now I feel better about my handiwork! Thanks!!!

You can't compare an Ipad colour screen to an e-ink B&W screen. It is an absurd analogy.

I went and looked at the video. Then I enlarged the fonts on my Paperwhite to the largest size. This is clearly more BS from jswinden. So far, I go with Kindle and dump jswinden.

Also, people are becoming more and more demanding, so there will be more and more bad reviews when even the slightest problem crops up. Also, remember that many people on the internet are basically morons with titanic mood swings, only able to give 5 stars or 1 star when it comes to writing reviews. I've seen someone give the Kindle 1 star because of not having a particular font that his former Kobo did have.

I saw a review that was "glowing" and effusive, espousing the PW's many virtues in a very lengthy monologue .

With 1 star! HEH... Made me chortle.

Funny, but also sad because it's true

As HarryT says the Kindle Paperwhite (e-ink) is not an android device and cannot use the Google Play Store.

The Kindle FIRE (LCD) is an Android device and can be rooted to use the Google Play store.

If you really meant the Kindle Fire, search the XDA.com forums for instructions.

Kindle Paperwhite rises to 4.3 star rating on Amazon.com

Now with 10,469 people having rated it as of this writing, the Paperwhite Kindle has risen to 4.3 out of 5 stars. That's a very high degree of customer satisfaction in anyone's book.
