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.
Conclusion: The Amazon Kindle Touch may not warrant an upgrade for existing owners, but it’s the best e-reader currently available and the touch-screen controls are perfect for adding notes to your favourite titles
Pros: Responsive touch-screen, excellent online store is accessible via Wi-Fi, typically amazing battery life, carry thousands of books around
Cons: A little chunky, not much to warrant an upgrade
Summary: The Kindle Touch is a great addition to the Amazon e-reader stable, with the same impressive battery, storage and e-ink screen of the original plus a touch-screen to bring it into the tablet era.
Excerpt: The Amazon Kindle Touch 3G brings touchscreen operation to the online retail giant's ereader, giving it a advantage over it's sibling - the Amazon Kindle 4 . The brand was beaten to the touch-based punch by the Kobo Touch Edition , which launched last year, but can it bring anything new to the table while we wait for the Amazon Kindle Fire to arrive on UK shores? We took a closer look to find out.
Pros: Easy navigation of book store, Plenty of storage, Longer battery life
Cons: Awkward page turning, Overly sensitive screen, A bit pricey
