Summary: Between library lending, friend-to-friend lending, social sharing, access to more than 1 million pieces of content, and a full QWERTY keyboard, the Kindle Keyboard 3G brings a lot to the table. While it's not a new device in the strictest sense, the Kindle Keyboard 3G is a sturdy, useful, and enjoyable eReader that we would readily recommend to friends and family who want an E Ink eReader. However, we'd recommend the ad-supported, Wi-Fi-only model for just $99.
Excerpt: The Amazon Kindle Keyboard , previously called the Amazon Kindle Wi-Fi, is the third generation reading device sold by Amazon. It offers improvements over the second generation which include a design that is both slimmer and lighter weight to go along with a screen that features a faster refresh rate. Does this make it worth the upgrade if you already have an earlier model? In some cases, absolutely.
Conclusion: Much of what the Kindle Keyboard 3G offers isn’t that far removed from the last iteration of the Kindle that we saw. There have been improvements: it is smaller and lighter, the response from the screen is faster and the contrast is better. None of these are really deal breakers in our mind and none are unique to the Amazon Kindle. However there is one significant factor that we can’t ignore: the price.
Pros: Price, wireless connection to Amazon Kindle store, great screen, part of the Amazon eco system
Cons: No EPUB support, basic menus, "experimental" functions lack support
Conclusion: While many believe that ebook readers are merely an interim technology until something better comes along, with a starting price of £109 for the Wi-Fi only model and £149 for the Kindle Keyboard 3G, it's easy to see that if you are tempted by the whole ereading experience, you'll be placing an order come 27 August when they go on sale.
Pros: Wi-fi or 3G options, price, PC-free reading, great screen
Cons: Closed system limits your potential ebook purchases
