The Kindle screen uses E-Ink Technology and it is not backlit which makes it easy on the eyes and it can be read in bright sunlight! When it is idle or you press the power button to turn it off, it will display a screensaver image like the one above rather than a blank screen.
The screen is not a touchscreen. Use the buttons on the bottom and sides of the Kindle to navigate.
