Amazon Kindle Touch review


The touchscreen Kindle Touch 3G has finally landed in the uk, but will its swipeable e-ink display make it a literary great?

Easy navigation of book store ; Plenty of storage ; Longer battery life

Awkward page turning ; Overly sensitive screen ; A bit pricey

The Amazon Kindle Touch’s spec sheet is impressive - particularly the increased storage, the strong battery life and the addition of 3G connectivity. While many will view the touchscreen as an excellent addition, we found it to be more hindrance than...

Amazon Kindle Touch 3G review


It wasn't all that long ago that we reviewed the new Kindle. As you might imagine, we loved it. This is, after all, the best known and best designed ebook reader on the market. It's simple, cheap, and pretty much single-purpose. What it does, it does...

Still the best ebook reader, great battery life, 3G is handy, touch controls managed well, audiobook support

Expensive compared to standard Kindle, touch doesn't add a lot, text to speech is a bit rough sounding, ebooks are still no VAT exempt and often too expensive

Nothing can stop the Kindle from being brilliant. If you need 3G, then the Touch is the only option for you - aside from the Kindle Keyboard. If audiobook and text-to-speech support is something you want, then this is the reader to buy. For everyone...

Amazon Kindle Touch review


Amazon's Kindles have long had a hold on the e-reader market, but its new finger-friendly model is a departure from its buttoned-up brothers. Is it a touch of class?

The Kindle Touch finally arrives in the UK. But is it any good?

Great Design ; Comfortable to hold ; Excellent Kindle Store integration ; Packed feature list

Chunkier and heavier than rivals ; No EPUB support

Amazon Kindle Touch review


The Amazon Kindle Touch is Amazon's first touchscreen e-reader, and includes Wi-Fi connectivity - REVISED 8 MAY 2012

Both the hardware and navigation of the Kindle Touch won us over. With solid Kindle Store integration, near instant book downloads and even a usable web browser, this is the best Amazon e-book reader so far.

Amazon Kindle Touch review


After a long and unexplained delay the Kindle Touch is finally available on British shores, over six months after its US launch. While the current slimline Amazon Kindle stripped out all the less-used features from the now clunky-looking keyboard...

Justifies its slightly higher cost and weight with a raft of useful additions over the standard Kindle

Amazon Kindle Touch review


Multi-touch makes e-reading easier than ever but a sluggish interface means the Amazon Kindle Touch isn't cut out for speed reading.

Simple gestures to flick through books ; Improved menus ; High-contrast screen

Slow touch interface ; Easy to accidentally turn pages ; Heavier than the standard Kindle

Amazon's great leap into the world of touch was inevitable. Swiping through ebooks, pinching to zoom and pressing to select feels so natural and intuitive that it's almost impossible to go back to a traditional Kindle.

Amazon Kindle Touch Review


Kindle Touch is the latest eReader from Amazon. As the name suggests, it's the first to arrive in the UK equipped with a touchscreen. But does this new feature improve the already excellent Kindle and are touchscreens best left to tablets? Let's find out.

Wide selection of books available ; Text is easy to read with wide range of sizes ; Lots of storage ; Portable

No night mode ; Touchscreen can be sensitive ; Touchscreen nice feature, but not necessary

Amazon Kindle Touch Wi-Fi eBook reader review


Having so many unread books at home, the Amazon Kindle and its numerous variants never really captured my imagination. I just wasn't that fussed about e-Books and using them was a slow burn, starting with iBooks on my iPhone – I'm blessed with good...

Initially, I had misgivings about Amazon's Kindle e-readers due to format constraints, but having used the workarounds available to good effect, this no longer remains a concern. The Kindle Touch is just the right size and its touchscreen makes for an...
