Yesterday after Amazon officially announced the new Kindle Voyage and entry-level Kindle Touch, a few tech sites posted some early hands-on videos showing the new Kindles in action.
Actually pretty much everyone focuses on the Kindle Voyage; the new entry-level Kindle is barely mentioned at all anywhere, and is being treated as more of an afterthought. But the CNET video does briefly mention it and show it for a few seconds, at least.
David Carnoy from CNET brings up some good points in the video. He mentions that all E Ink Kindles have the same 1GHz processor, and they have 256MB of RAM, except the new Kindle Voyage, it has 512MB of RAM.
He also confirms that the $79 entry-level Kindle uses an infrared touchscreen instead of capacitive like the Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Voyage. And the video shows how the Kindle Voyage has a flush screen like the Kobo Aura.
More details and pictures can be found on CNET’s preliminary review.

The Verge also upload an early video review of the Kindle Voyage (they don’t mention the basic Kindle at all, for some reason). The video shows some good close-ups of the screen, and shows a little more about how the page turn sensors work.
