The second release in as many days, Amazon introduces us to the Kindle Touch, a multi-touch eReader. While the loss of the keyboard is a little disappointing, the touchscreen more than makes up for the loss of control the Kindle released earlier this year demonstrated. Combine that with the absolutely stellar support and features provided by Amazon, and you've got yourself a solid eReader.
