Amazon Kindle May Get a Touchscreen

Touchscreen Technology May Come to the Kindle

This is potentially very exciting: Amazon has purchased a startup company specializing in touchscreen technology. It plans to merge it with the Kindle hardware division, which leads one to believe that maybe the next generation Kindle will have a touchscreen. The company claims its technology can distinguish between a finger and a stylus, as well as support simultaneous touch points (oooh . . . more multitouch?)

As an avid iPhone user, I find myself trying to touch just about any screen to navigate it, including both my Kindle and my computer screen, and a touchscreen Kindle would be quite appealing. The Nook already features a color touchscreen navigation, and obviously the iPad is one giant touchscreen. While I doubt the technology will show up anytime soon, here's hoping Amazon jumps on the touchscreen train — I'd upgrade in a second!

while i like e book readers, they also leave me with a bitter sweet taste in my mouth, because im big into actual books, made of paper and ink that you can hold in your hand and flip the pages, and while i think e book readers are awesome little bits of tech, i dont want actual books to become obsolete, that would be a crime
