Amazon Kindle Touch Review

The Gadgeteer
2 January 2012
  • Excerpt: An e-reader should be pretty simple to review, one like the Kindle Touch that has only two buttons even more so. Amazon ‘s ebook reader has one primary task: displaying the pages of the reader’s books.  Sure, there are other features of importance like availability of content, size and weight, and overall usability issues.
  • Pros: E Ink Display, Size, Whispersync Cloud Service
  • Cons: Interface incongruities, Size, No charger included

Amazon Kindle Touch

6 December 2011
  • Summary: With multi-touch, the Amazon Kindle makes e-book reading an even more comfortable exercise. The slightly smaller footprint, because the keyboard has been removed, makes it comfortable to hold. If you are thinking of upgrading from a previous gen Kindle, the upgrade isn't enticing enough. If however, this is your first Kindle, or you are adding to the e-book reader armory, then this is the one to consider.
  • Pros: Slim and light, Good touchscreen response
  • Cons: Accidental page turns are quite common

Review: Amazon Kindle

Wired
11 October 2011
  • Excerpt: For the legions of fans still devoted to the e-ink reading experience — easier on the eyes, the batteries and the biceps — the big news to come out of Amazon’s recent high-profile product launch wasn’t its fancy new Android tablet with a backlit 7-inch screen. It was the line of new e-ink Kindles. Amazon’s new Kindles bring an updated hardware design to its family of popular black and white e-readers.
  • Pros: Hardware is lighter, snappier and all-around improved. Ads in the “special offers” versions only appear in the home screen and screensavers, never in the book. Great battery life — five days of use, even with the night light, and it isn’t yet half empty.
  • Cons: Typing is t-o-r-t-u-r-e. Power switch is now a button, not a slider, and easier to trigger when you don’t want to. Screen can get scuffed if you carry it everywhere, necessitating an accessory cover or sleeve.

The Gadgeteer
6 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Last week Amazon went a little crazy and announced 4 new devices all on the same day. The Kindle, Kindle Touch, Kindle Touch 3G and the Kindle Fire. The first 3 devices are e-book readers and the Fire is a tablet. That is a lot of devices and of course we plan to review all of them because that’s just what we do We have to wait a little while for the Kindle Touch and Kindle Fire devices to become available, but we’re happy to give you the scoop on the $79 Kindle today.
  • Pros: Small, Thin, Excellent battery life
  • Cons: No 3G version, No audio

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. However if your main priority from a portable device is reading, then the Kindle should be your first choice. For long periods of reading E-Ink is far superior to a smartphone app.
