  • Conclusion: If you’re an avid reader of books and want to go digital, the Amazon Kindle Touch is a good value tablet has everything you need to get enjoying ebooks. It’s near faultless in operation, and comes well recommended.
  • Pros: The E Ink display remains as clever an addition as it always has, never jarring on the eyes. You may be looking at a screen, but it doesn’t feel like you are at all. It really is a marvel. Everything about it and what’s on display is designed to get your reading, and swiping through those pages. Sure, the display isn’t as eye-catching as other tablets, but images are still clear, and the Kindle Touch more than does what it’s supposed to. Swiping feels completely natur...

Amazon Kindle Touch 3G

PC Magazine
15 May 2012
  • Conclusion: Amazon's Kindle Touch is a very capable touch-screen ebook reader, but when it comes to price, the Wi-Fi-only version makes the most sense. The 3G option puts it too close to the more-versatile Kindle Fire tablet.
  • Pros: Sleek, attractive design. High-contrast touch screen. Informative X-Ray feature (although few books support it at the moment). Well-designed ebook store includes plenty of books, reviews, and lists.
  • Cons: Ad-free version costs $40 extra. Expensive 3G option. Slightly larger and heavier than the non-touch Kindle. Could use more font choices.

  • Excerpt: The Amazon Kindle Touch is a version of the new Amazon Kindle that has been fitted with a 6-inch touchscreen e-ink display. It doesn’t have the various navigational buttons found on the non-touch Kindle, so instead, users have to rely on touchscreen controls to navigate and interact with the device. There are two versions of the Kindle Touch.

  • Excerpt: The Touchscreen edition of the popular e-reader is heavier and pricier than the original, and is only worth a purchase if audio or 3G is a priority.
