Expert review by : Dan Costa (pcmag.com)

Amazon Kindle (3G + Wi-Fi)

 

The latest edition's improvements aren't revolutionary, but the Amazon Kindle remains the best dedicated ebook reader on the market.

Compact Design. Higher-contrast screen than its predecessor. Smarter button layout. Integrated Wi-Fi. 4GB capacity (enough space for 3,500 books). Wide selection of books, magazines, and blogs.

No support for EPub format.

Amazon Kindle (3G) review: Amazon Kindle (3G)

 

Amazon Kindle (3G)

Slimmer, more compact design than previous Kindle; improved screen with higher contrast and faster page turns; native PDF support; large library of hundreds of thousands of e-books, newspapers, magazines, and blogs via Amazon's familiar online store;...

No expansion slot for adding more memory; no support for EPUB book files; no protective carrying case included; battery is sealed into the device and isn't removable.

The third-generation Kindle's winning combination of noteworthy upgrades--an improved screen, better battery life, lighter weight, and lower price--vaults it to the top of the e-book reader category.

Review: Amazon Kindle Third Generation With 3G + Wi-Fi

 

The third generation of the Kindle offers higher contrast, better battery, and a graphite colored chassis. But is it worth it to upgrade? And can...

Amazon keeps pace with a more competitive e-reading marketplace with a smaller device, more readable text, yet and another improved hardware interface. 9 price for Wi-Fi version will open the door for multi-Kindle families. Battery life is long enough...

Still the same DRM, no touch-screen navigation, the book-light case is too costly. Only those with tiniest fingers will avoid hitting the “back” button when moving the cursor down. Interface for newspaper and magazines still clunky

Hands-On with the Kindle Family

 

Fast page turn refresh, Improved looks and appearance, Lowest-priced Kindles yet

Difficult to hold (Kindle), Unresponsive touch screen (Kindle Touch)

On to the Kindle Touch. Ah, that’s more like it! Some space for my thumb and fingers! The Kindle Touch has a much wider area around the screen for holding the device and, due to the lack of page turn buttons, the space can be used without fear of...
