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?

Amazon Kindle Touch


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 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...

Amazon Kindle Touch review


Amazon launched its first touch-screen Kindle in the UK in late April, aiming to tempt current and new e-book fans with an easier reading experience, along with other new features. The Kindle Touch Wi-Fi-only version we've been testing is priced at a...

E-ink touch-screen, battery life, storage, light weight

Screen can be a bit sensitive, long recharge time

The Kindle Touch is a great addition to the Amazon e-reader stable, with the same impressive battery, storage and e-ink screen of the original plus a touch-screen to bring it into the tablet era.
