Amazon Kindle (2011)

PC Magazine
2 January 2011
  • Conclusion: The new Amazon Kindle rings in at a bargain $79 price, establishes the new class standard for affordable ebook readers, and still features the best ebook store on the market.
  • Pros: Lowest-priced Kindle to date. Significantly smaller and lighter than before. High-contrast screen. Kindle Store is fun to browse and is packed with books, lists, and customer reviews.
  • Cons: Ad-free version costs $30 extra. Page turn buttons are a little awkward to press. No memory card slot or ePub support.

Amazon Kindle (2009)

PC Magazine
2 January 2011
  • Conclusion: Despite some rough edges, the Kindle is sure to drive e-books further into the mainstream.
  • Pros: Super-thin. Improved screen. Better button layout. 2GB capacity (1,500 books). Free integrated cellular modem. Text-to-speech capability. Buying new titles is dead simple. Wide selection of books, magazines, and blogs.
  • Cons: Still no touch screen. No native PDF or .DOC support. Reads only proprietary e-book format. Interface could be more intuitive.

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.

Amazon Kindle review

expertreviews.co.uk
15 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Kindle has become to eReaders what Hoover is to vacuum cleaners. Amazon’s domination of online bookselling put it in a strong position when it came to eBooks. Its big new challenge was making a good eReader, but the company caught on quick - and this latest iteration of the Kindle maintains the high standard of previous devices. Amazon insists of just calling many of its eReaders ‘Kindle’, though you could call this the Kindle 4.

Amazon Kindle (2011)

Pocket Lint
30 September 2011
  • Conclusion: Amazon has done it again. With every iteration the Kindle gets cheaper, smaller, lighter and faster. By not messing with the store or interface, the Kindle 4 feels like your favourite ebook reader, streamlined. Buying and reading books is still extremely straightforward and, while the home screen bookshelf could do with some modernisation, it doesn’t get in the way of the important business of reading.
  • Pros: Supremely light and compact, decent build quality for the price, lots of free content, basic web browsing
  • Cons: Where’s the keyboard? Home screen is starting to feel stale

  • 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's newest, cheapest, smallest, simplest Kindle is, we think, its best

Good Gear Guide.au
19 November 2010
  • Summary: Amazon's newest, cheapest, smallest, simplest Kindle is, we think, its best. You'll have to be interested in buying books, of course -- just having the Kindle isn't really enough to inspire you to begin reading, and even though there are plenty of cheap books you still have to buy them -- but the Kindle makes it so easy as to be entirely painless.
  • Pros: Thin, light and compact body, Excellent screen, Very cheap
  • Cons: Typing with the controller is a pain, Wi-Fi quietly drains the battery

Amazon Kindle 3 review

11 October 2010
  • Excerpt: After its dalliance with providing the Kindle from an International store, Amazon has decided that for its latest model it will ship a UK-specific model. While that's of interest in itself, it's perhaps the price that's the most astonishing thing: the 3G model (WiFi is also included) here is just £149, but those on a tighter budget can buy the WiFi-only model for just £109. If you think that corners have been cut to get the price down, you'd be wrong.
