He says he was at Books a Million. There was no Kindle there, just the Nook.
When the Nook "didn't work", he bought a Kindle at amazon.com.
There is no Best Buy in the area.
Why he had a problem with the Nook, I can't tell you, but he detests the Motorola Flip phone he has and likes I phones and has no problems with them.
Myself, I really don't like anything with a touch screen. The ones that are heat sensing refuse to admit I'm alive. The ones that are pressure sensing don't work well with long fingernails for me, but they are better than the heat sensing ones.
I'm sorry to hear the new Kindle is going to be a touch screen.
