Kindle Touch Software Update 5.0.3 →
My biggest complaint with the Kindle Touch so far has been that it’s frustratingly slow.
Great news: this new software update makes it much faster. Page-turns are now as fast as the Kindle 4 and Nook Simple Touch. Navigation and menus have improved to be about the same speed as the Nook’s, and in the ballpark of the Kindle 4’s (but a bit slower).
It’s still not perfect: I still dislike the unintuitive touch interface, proneness to accidental actions and backwards page-turns, and lack of physical page-turn buttons. But this update makes the formerly frustrating Kindle Touch into a decent product.
