I plan on getting the Kindle Touch but I think I will wait for them to add the color ones and see how much they are.

This will probably be the E Ink Triton display, an E Ink electronic paper with a colored overlay on top. Don't expect really vibrant colors but it will NOT be an LCD so reading for a long time is a certainty.

Since I haven't heard of any breakthroughs in color e-ink, I'm assuming these will have LCD screens. In which case, no thanks. The best thing about my Kindle is not having to recharge for weeks at a time.

I don't see the use of color for an eBook reader. If you want color and you want to read, buy a tablet or use your PC. Most books, both physical and eBooks that I have read in the past 20 years have been black and white. What would color add other than expense to the product?

I know a bunch of people who bought tablets so they could read comics or magazines in colour. Then again, how else are they going to sell you another new Kindle unless something new was added? :)

I find it amazing that the Kindle is now $79, when only a few years ago (3?) it was like $400.

Amazon is making a lot more money from digital book sales now than they were at launch, so it's not awfully surprising to me.
