I don't know where you got your info on e-ink, but it is completely false. We have an e-ink reader and it is PERFECT, even in the strongest sunlight and no glare. Does a heck of a lot better than trying to use my iPhone for anything outdoors. So, irrespective of whether or not it is a "deal-breaker", Darlene won't give up her e-ink Kindle for anything. And there is no reason not to have both. She can have a kindle fire if she wants to or anything else in the tablet world. She just doesn't see the need to carry that around ever. Especially when she travels. But the Kindle e-ink goes everywhere when she travels. So, unless you have actually seen e-ink in the sun, please tell your source they are flat-out wrong on that.
