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 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.

Amazon Kindle (2011)

PC Magazine
7 November 2010
  • 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

  • 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.

Review: Amazon Kindle Third Generation With 3G + Wi-Fi

Wired
22 August 2010
  • Excerpt: Though Amazon.com won’t say how many units it has sold, its Kindle e-reader has been a tremendous success for the e-commerce giant. Some analysts estimate Amazon sold 3 million before this year, and will double that total in 2010.
  • Pros: Amazon keeps pace with a more competitive e-reading marketplace with a smaller device, more readable text, yet and another improved hardware interface. 9 price for Wi-Fi version will open the door for multi-Kindle families. Battery life is long enough for space shuttle missions.
  • Cons: Still the same DRM, no touch-screen navigation, the book-light case is too costly. Only those with tiniest fingers will avoid hitting the “back” button when moving the cursor down. Interface for newspaper and magazines still clunky.
