Amazon Kindle Touch 3G

 

Sleek, attractive design. High-contrast touch screen. Informative X-Ray feature (although few books support it at the moment). Well-designed ebook store includes plenty of books, reviews, and lists

Ad-free version costs $40 extra. Expensive 3G option. Slightly larger and heavier than the non-touch Kindle. Could use more font choices

Amazon's Kindle Touch is a very capable touch-screen ebook reader, but when it comes to price, the Wi-Fi-only version makes the most sense. The 3G option puts it too close to the more-versatile Kindle Fire tablet.

Amazon Kindle Touch 3G Review

 

It might not have the buzz of the Fire, but Amazon's other touch-enabled eReader has plenty going for it, too. The $149 Touch 3G has anywhere connectivity, a great E Ink screen, and innovative features such as X-Ray. Still, we prefer the Barnes & Noble...

Crisp E Ink screen, Free books through Amazon Prime membership, Multiple book-lending features, Social networking sharing

Relatively expensive, Interface requires learning curve, No physical page-turn buttons

Kindle Touch Review: Finally, a Touch E-reader for Amazon

 

The Kindle Touch (Wi-Fi + 3G) is the flagship of Amazon's Kindle e-reader line. The addition of touch navigation aligns Amazon's Kindle with its competition, but a few debatable interface and physical design choices reduce my enthusiasm for this...

Only e-reader with a 3G version ; Easy to page through books with left or right hand

Menus are awkward

Though the Kindle Touch brings Amazon up to speed with other e-readers, its hardware and software offer little in the way of imagination and useful innovation.

Amazon Kindle Touch 3G Review

 

Amazon announced three new Kindles back in September: the fourth generation Kindle, the Kindle Touch (and Kindle Touch 3G, both of which are identical aside from the 3G antenna), and the Kindle Fire. The Kindle 4 was available on the same day, and...

Amazon Kindle Touch 2011 review: Amazon Kindle Touch 2011

 

Editors' note (September 6, 2012): The product reviewed here has been discontinued and replaced with an updated model ( Kindle Paperwhite ) as of September 2012. Read Amazon's new Kindles: Everything you need to know for more information.

The Kindle Touch is a compact, lightweight, and affordable e-book reader with an e-ink touch screen. It offers access to a massive catalog of books, magazines, newspapers, and audiobooks via Amazon.com's familiar online store, as well as to online...

All accessories--including a cover and an AC charger--cost extra. You also need to spend an extra $40 if you don't want the ad-supported Special Offers version, and $50 more if you want 3G wireless support. The lack of hard page-turn buttons may...

The Kindle Touch is Amazon's best e-reader to date.

With so many new Kindles to choose from, it's important to make the right decision for you and your family. Do you go all-in with a Kindle Fire? Skate by with the bargain basement Kindle? Or, like...

Great price ; Touchscreen ; Kindle ecosystem

Pretty soon Jeff Bezos will show up at my house and pay me to take a Kindle

Review: Amazon Kindle Touch

 

Even in the age of tablets, Amazon's e-ink reader feels more relevant than ever -- now that it has a touchscreen.

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

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 Touch review

 

It was back in back in September that Amazon finally unveiled the Kindle Fire, its long awaited entry into the budget space. The full-color, multimedia

Dual-touch touchscreen ; Pocket-sized ; X-ray search feature ; Optional 3G

No expandable memory ; Starting price includes ads

Amazon's first touchscreen reader isn't a revolution, but it's certainly enough to keep the company at the forefront of the e-reader market.

The Amazon Kindle Touch is a version of the new Amazon Kindle that has been fitted with a 6-inch touchscreen e-ink display. It doesn't have the various navigational buttons found on the non-touch Kindle, so instead, users have to rely on touchscreen...

Amazon Kindle Touch Review And Fourth-Gen Screen Quality Update

 

Amazon Kindle Fire tablet received all of the glory. But the company also has a new e-book reader that features a touchscreen. How does the Kindle Touch stack up, and what's the real story on the display quality of Amazon's fourth-gen Kindles?
