Hands-On with the Kindle Family

The Mac Observer
14 November 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. The device is also slightly thicker and heftier, which helps it nest into your palm a bit better than the Kindle.
  • Pros: Fast page turn refresh, Improved looks and appearance, Lowest-priced Kindles yet
  • Cons: Difficult to hold (Kindle), Unresponsive touch screen (Kindle Touch)

Amazon Kindle Review

BigPictureBigSound
7 December 2009
  • Conclusion: Before this review, I didn't own a Kindle nor did I know anyone who did, but I'd seen a few in my travels - usually at a book store or coffee shop. On those rare occasions of a Kindle sighting, I can recall a bit of loitering on my part, purposefully lingering near the smitten Kindle carrier in hopes of sneaking a few peeks at the coveted e-reader. Now that I've spent some quality 1-on-1 time with Kindle, I can understand the attraction.
  • Pros: Excellent screen yields zero eye strain, Comfortable size and lightweight design, Kindle Whispernet delivers a new book in seconds, Great battery life, music listening and web browser are nice extras, The ability to re-download your library to a new Kindle, You can offload content to your Amazon.com library to make room for new content, Whispernet is now powered by AT&T 3G. (Previously it was Sprint.)
  • Cons: Screen can be hard to read in low light, NEXT PAGE button is too stiff and too loud, The inability to loan a Kindle book to someone else, PREVIOUS PAGE button should be on both edges, Inconsistent and occasionally steep book pricing, Leather protective case costs $29 extra, Previously-purchased books cannot be re-downloaded to a new Kindle if the book is out of print or unavailable for legal reasons, No card slot to supplement the on-board memory

  • Summary: Having looked at two earlier models that were only available from Amazon .Com, here – after a very long wait – I get to sample the joys of the latest sleek offering that at long last is available from Amazon in the UK.

Amazon Kindle : Jetzt auch mit deutscher Menüführung

netzwelt
12 September 2014
  • Summary: Der Kindle von Amazon überzeugt besonders durch seine Cloud-Anbindung. Bücher, die über Amazon.de gekauft wurden, lassen sich kabellos per WLAN einfach auf den Reader übertragen. Einmal erworbene Bücher können außerdem jederzeit erneut auf den E-Book-Reader geladen werden. Ebenfalls praktisch ist die Möglichkeit, Dokumente per E-Mail an das Lesegerät zu senden.
  • Pros: direkter Zugriff auf Amazon, Cloudanbindung
  • Cons: Bedienung ist nicht intuitiv, kleinere Verarbeitungsmängel, keine EPUB-Unterstützung, kein PDF-Reflow

  • Conclusion: Le Kindle a pour lui le catalogue en ligne d’Amazon, une bonne finition et un processus d’achat transparent. L’interface en anglais, et un contenu essentiellement disponible dans la même langue le dessert.
  • Pros: Finition, qualité de l’écran, connexion sans fil 3G, autonomie, catalogue.
  • Cons: Navigation pas très intuitive, interface en anglais, contenu encore rare en français.
