Amazon Kindle Touch

6 December 2011
  • 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.

Review: Amazon Kindle Touch

Wired
14 November 2011
  • Excerpt: The text-based e-reader isn’t ready for the dustbin of history quite yet. The Amazon Kindle was supposed to be slaughtered by the advent of the multi-use touchscreen tablet. And next to today’s shiny glass slates, the original Kindle, now four years old, looks as antiquated as, oh, the first iPod.
  • Pros: Emphasis on reading and instant gratification in a comfortable package that actually improves on the e-ink touchscreen metaphor. Ads are not intrusive. It’s soothing to see page numbers that match up with the print world.
  • Cons: Though you can see community notes and tweet your progress while reading, the social layer is not as broad as the ones baked into the Nook and Kobo Touch.2

Amazon Kindle e-Reader Review

The Gadgeteer
6 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Update on 10/19/11: Because I truly had learned to tune out the black flashes, I didn’t notice until today that the Kindle doesn’t do the flash-to-black for every page turn.  As Erin asked in comment 18 and Bryan explained in comment 21, the Kindle is like the Nook.
  • 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.

Two Kensington products for Road Warriors

MyMac
8 September 2010
  • Excerpt: There is nothing worse then being stuck in an airport or on a long plane flight and having your iPod battery run out of power. Having a rechargeable power pack for times like those is an absolute must, unless you enjoy staring across the aisle at some other guy enjoying his iPod.
