Amazon Kindle 3G

 

The newest refresh to the Kindle line is sleeker and slimmer with a better screen and more wireless options.

The $189 Kindle 3G is an improvement over the already great Kindle 2. The combination of speed, good ergonomics, an improved display, and social sharing features all work in this eReader's favor. And the addition of Wi-Fi sweetens the pot. We don't...

Amazon Kindle 3G Review

 

Reading on the Kindle is very pleasant. The device is lightweight, thin, and comfortable to hold for long periods. Turning pages is silent and can be made from both sides of the device.Its outline is slightly rounded, and the texture is smooth,...

Amazon Kindle 3

 

Smaller, less expensive and higher contrast display., Pro: Great price on both readers, lovely hardware, improved keyboard, lighter, smaller and better looking. Access to Amazon's huge selection of ebooks and a good selection of periodicals. Very easy...

Still locked into the Amazon store, no ePUB support., Con: No ePUB support means no shopping around for your ebooks and no library books

Amazon has become the one to beat in terms of hardware, book selection, customer service and price. The $139 Kindle 3 with WiFi is a wonderful reader for an impressively low price. The 3G + WiFi version manages to come in $10 cheaper than the Nook (we...

Amazon Kindle Keyboard review

 

Could this be the first eBook reader to truly appeal to the mass market?

It's cheap ; Superb screen ; Small and light ; Great choice of books

Not so good with pictures ; Books could be cheaper ; Some controls a bit awkwawrd ; Experimental features need more work

Hands on with Amazon's zippy, alluring Kindle

 

The Amazon Kindle 3 made an unusually quick, and positive, impression. The new Kindle's solid build quality, improved design, integrated store, and cross-platform transportability (books are usable on any Kindle reader app, including iPhone, iPad,...

Can be held in one hand, improved speed

More options to customise text display would be nice

Amazon Kindle 3G + Wi-Fi review

 

The new Amazon Kindle 3G has landed, following up where the Kindle 2 left off. We criticised the Kindle 2 on various fronts: the fact that it was restricted to Amazon's material when it came to purchasing ebooks was the biggest bugbear. Things have...

Price, wireless connection to Amazon Kindle store, great screen, part of the Amazon eco system

No EPUB support, basic menus, "experimental" functions lack support

Excellent value for money combined with a simple connection to get your content, the Kindle experience is difficult to beat. However, you are locked to Amazon content, so won't get the option of shopping around for content

Amazon Kindle 3G and Wi-Fi - First Look

 

The reader of the future?

Wi-fi or 3G options, price, PC-free reading, great screen

While many believe that ebook readers are merely an interim technology until something better comes along, with a starting price of £109 for the Wi-Fi only model and £149 for the Kindle 3G and Wi-Fi version, it's easy to see that if you are tempted by...

Amazon Kindle Keyboard review

 

The Amazon Kindle has only relatively recently made it to the UK, with our US brothers and sisters enjoying the device for some time. As we've been looking at our disconnected ebook readers on this side of the pond and scratching our balding pates, US...

Wireless connection of content, feels great in the hand, easy reading experience

Not all functions available to non-US customers, rudimentary MP3 support, you are restricted to Amazon's content

Take the Kindle because you always buy from Amazon and you are happy with their content, or you'd love to be able to walk out the door with your edition of The Telegraph already on the device. If you are happy to shop around and connect your ebook...

Amazon Kindle 3 review

 

The third-generation Amazon Kindle is unlike any other e-book reader we've handled before: and that includes the new Amazon Kindle DX (Graphite).

The Amazon Kindle 3 made an unusually quick, and positive, impression. The new Kindle's solid build quality, improved design, integrated store, and cross-platform transportability (books are usable on any Kindle reader app, including iPhone, iPad,...
