Only useful as a gateway to Kindle Owner's Lending Library
5 January 2014
Summary: I bought this refurbished, and it's still too much money. I only bought it so I could take advantage of the Kindle library, but I doubt I'll use it except to put the book in my account and then read it on my android tablet. No back light means you can't read anything in the dark. Black and white like a newspaper, and yet it's so pricey. I bought an android tablet with Ice Cream for almost half of what I paid for an ereader that does nothing else but let me read books.
Fast, and better than reading an actual book, but hard to see.

Excerpt: I much prefer reading on a Kindle to reading a regular book. It is easier to keep track of where you are in the book, and you can find the definition of a word simply by touching it. The Kindle touch is fast, with fast download speeds and very fast page turning. The downside is that it is not back-lit, like the Kindle Fire is, so you can not use it to read in the dark, and it is hard to see even in a poorly lit room.
Excerpt: I previously owned a kindle Keyboard but it was recently broken by my 4 year old and the only replacement they offerend in that was the keyboard 3g which I couldnt bring myself to spend $50 more then I did for my original. So I went with the kindle touch. I use the text to speech function all the time. I use it while Im cleaning the house, doing a craft, on a walk, and many more times.
Excerpt: I currently own the Amazon Kindle Touch 3G and I am happy with it. The battery life is very good, I can go weeks with out charging it. This is my second kindle although this one seems to be fine, the first one I owned died after a year and a half. My family bought me the same model for Christmas to replace the one that was no longer working. Overall it is fine but it is slower then I would prefer to load.
Excerpt: The Kindle Touch 3G is good for an eReader if you only want to read. But, once you realize how limited the Touch is, you begin to wish that you had better spent your money on a Kindle Fire HD instead. The 3G on the Touch is a sham. It can't really go online outside of wireless. I get 0 bars on the 3G wherever I go. I hate it. I want to surf the web and stuff, and the Touch which I bought for $149 would have been better spent on the Kindle Fire for only $50 more.
Bad: speed, no light, heavier than Kindle 4. Good: display, design.

Summary: The display is great, the visible design is good, and the price is awesome. However there are issues to address. First of all the device contains and infrared touch screen for some mysterious reason which makes it fat comparing to Kindle 4. It's a bit heavier and wider as well. No built-in light is also an issue. The solution is to buy a very expensive Amazon cover case that costs almost as the device itself.
Summary: It is not possible to enjoy both the 3g connection and the french kindle store. The goal was to give this kindle to a couple, she is french, he is german, they live in the UK. They are not able to download a book every where in the world if they want to access the kindle store in their respective language.
Summary: I bought this device based on the experience of older models with the keyboard. I do not like much that Amazon did not inform the inability to use 3G to browse on their site out. Certainly I would then select a model $ 50 cheaper. So do not use 3G at all. Based on this experience from Amazon never spend money. I find them rogue.
Excerpt: Este ebook me lo regalo mi chico el año pasado, lo compró en USA antes de que saliera el Kindle Fire. Lo bueno es su conexion wifi, su gran capaciadad y la comodidad para la vista a la hora de leer. Sin embargo tiene algunos puntos negativos. Para mi el más negativo es la diifcultad de agrupar, clasificar, etiquetar, etc. lo cual hacer que cuando tienes un cierto numero de libros, se hace muy arduo localizar libros.
Pros: Capacidad, Sincronizacion, Tinta agradable para la lectura, antireflejo solar,
Cons: No clasifica, blanco y negro, pocos graficos .
Conclusion: В этом устройстве воплощен довольно модный тренд для мобильных устройств - сенсорный экран. Kindle Touch в рекламной и не рекламной версии поставляется теперь без сетевого адаптера в отличии от Kindle 3(Kindle Keyboard). Устройство выполнено как всегда качественно и сборка не вызывет никаких негативных эмоций. Устройство легче чем предыдущий Kindle и по меньше по размерам за счет отсутствия аппаратной клавиатуры.
Pros: Качество сборки, время работы.
Cons: Отсутствие альбомной ориентации при чтении pdf и в вэб браузере.
