I would be fine with them keeping the touch screen (so they don't need a physical keyboard, navigation buttons, etc), but I can't for the life of me figure out why they removed the page turning buttons. This feels like a basic UI thing - 95% of what you are going to do is turning pages, so that should be much easier and reliable than anything else.

I was pretty shocked they removed the page turn buttons. They are the most used buttons by an order of magnitude and tapping the screen is a crappy interface as it is too sensitive and I often jump forward or backward a page when I reposition myself in a plane seat or similar.

this, a hundred times. It's not bad to have touch screen for selecting the random word or using the store, but why make 99% of the actions I do on the freaking thing uncomfortable?
