Touchscreen showed its weakness yesterday when I was waiting for a bus in the freezing cold and couldn't turn the page with my gloves on. It is a concern, especially as I do a lot of my reading while walking but hopefully this damn place will heat up and I can take my gloves off.
You're right, you can't actually switch the backlight off completely.
I bought the official case, it's pretty good, but I find myself using it naked these days. So much lighter and pleasant in the hand.
Although it isn't perfect - irregular lighting at the bottom - it almost feels like a perfect device and such a massive improvement on my old reader, Sony 505. Soooooo much better for ereading than tablets due to weight, no lcd and no distractions.
