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.

The Kindle Touch Feels Good


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

Kindle Touch review


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 Goldilocks, do you choose something in the middle? The...

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.

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?
