The Gadgeteer

  • Pros: E Ink Display, Size, Whispersync Cloud Service
  • Cons: Interface incongruities, Size, No charger included

  • Excerpt: The Kindle has shed the buttons, and seems to be handling this facet of its personality very comfortably. While it is still not officially available in India, you can order it from Amazon or any of the shopping websites that allow global shopping.

Amazon Kindle Review: In Depth

Recombu
14 November 2010
  • Conclusion: With the Kindle Fire on the way - although we’ve yet to have a date of when this will come to the UK. It’s easy to think ‘I’ll hang on for that.’ And if you are looking for a tablet/e-reader that might be a wise move.

Hands-On with the Kindle Family

The Mac Observer
12 September 2010
  • Conclusion: On to the Kindle Touch. Ah, that’s more like it! Some space for my thumb and fingers! The Kindle Touch has a much wider area around the screen for holding the device and, due to the lack of page turn buttons, the space can be used without fear of triggering an inadvertent page turn.
  • Pros: Fast page turn refresh, Improved looks and appearance, Lowest-priced Kindles yet
  • Cons: Difficult to hold (Kindle), Unresponsive touch screen (Kindle Touch)
