Amazon Kindle (3G + Wi-Fi)

PC Magazine
23 August 2010
  • Conclusion: The latest edition's improvements aren't revolutionary, but the Amazon Kindle remains the best dedicated ebook reader on the market.
  • Pros: Compact Design. Higher-contrast screen than its predecessor. Smarter button layout. Integrated Wi-Fi. 4GB capacity (enough space for 3,500 books). Wide selection of books, magazines, and blogs.
  • Cons: No support for EPub format.

Amazon Kindle ( international version)

CNET
29 October 2009
  • Summary: The Kindle itself is a smashing piece of kit, but Amazon's digital bookstore just isn't ready for us to invest in. Using competing bookstores with the Kindle isn't possible and we couldn't find a single one of the 15 books we searched for.
  • Pros: Integrated bookstore is incredibly simple to use; terrific battery life; great design; impressive display that's comfortable to read.
  • Cons: Locks you into Amazon's proprietary Kindle bookstore; no support for the open ePub format; can't transfer purchased ebooks to other devices.

Test Kindle 2G : la deuxième génération de liseuse par Amazon

Clubic
12 April 2011
  • Conclusion: Il y a clairement deux façons de juger le Kindle, selon qu'on parle anglais ou pas. Et même, si le parler est une chose, encore faut-il vouloir se gaver de littérature anglo-saxonne !
  • Pros: + Connectivité 3G / système bien ficelé, + Qualité de l'affichage, + Ergonomie simple et agréable, + Fonctionnalités complètes / Prix
  • Cons: - English everywhere, - Pas compatible avec le format ePub, - Absence d'accéléromètre

  • Excerpt: Derfor har vi valgt at teste den her i Datatid. Du skal dog ikke købe den for at kunne læse danske bøger. Dem er der ingen af. Desuden kan du kun købe Kindle på Amazon, for eksempel den britiske hjemmeside, så du skal lægge prisen for forsendelse oven i de 89 engelske pund, den koster.
