Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 3G/Wi-Fi Review by Scott Hanselman

I have to agree with Scott (@shanselman); the Kindle Paperwhite may not be an “improvement” on the old Kindle 3G. I’m still in love with my Kindle 3G, especially its text-to-speech capability which I believe is a necessary feature for those with vision impairments. Cutting the text-to-speech feature and the physical buttons is a false move on Amazon’s part; they shouldn’t ignore the segment of the population that needs these features.
