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 2011

 

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

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 Feels Good

 

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

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...

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?
