Amazon Kindle 2014 (review): Everything you want in an e-ink Kindle except a light

 

Amazon's entry-level Kindle is the company's most affordable touchscreen e-reader to date and is only missing one key feature.

The Kindle (2014) is affordable e-ink reader with Wi-Fi that sports a touchscreen and offers access to Amazon's best-in-class e-book ecosystem in a simple, clean-looking package. Capacity has been doubled to 4GB, and the processor is a bit zippier, too.

Battery life is less than Paperwhite and Voyage; no integrated light. All accessories -- such as a charger and case -- cost extra.

For those who can live without an integrated light, the Kindle (2014) offers the full Kindle e-ink e-reading experience with little compromise for a budget price.

Amazon Kindle (2014) review

 

Good, better, best. That's what you're looking at when it comes to Amazon's Kindle e-ink e-readers these days, with the e-reader you see here -- the 2014 Kindle -- representing the entry-level or "good" model in the lineup. It retails for $79 in the...

Amazon adds a touch screen to its entry-level Kindle ebook reader, making it a fantastic bargain for $79.

Responsive touch screen. Increased storage capacity. Excellent ebook store.

No front light. No memory card slot or ePub support. Ads cost $20 to remove.

Amazon Kindle review: digital paper never looked so good

 

Readers know all about the Kindle. A mainstay of eReading for quite some time, the e-ink tablet may have lost some ground to others, but it still has bite. How much is left in the tank? We find out!

Amazon Kindle eReader

 

First Impressions: Amazon's entry level ereader is cheap and mostly cheerful

The Kobo Touch (£59) is its closest rival and there's very little to separate the two. They have very similar designs and both have plenty of storage. If you want that all important ePub file support, you will probably side with the Touch, but other...

Amazon Kindle (2014) review

 

Amazon turns the page for the basic Kindle model

New touchscreen ; Affordable ; Increased storage

No backlight ; Screen could be better ; Cheap and chunky design

Ratings in depth While the Kindle Voyage is the more exciting of Amazon's latest ereaders, the new Amazon Kindle (2014) shouldn't be overlooked as an affordable way to enter the world of paperless books.

Amazon Kindle (2014) review: A Paperwhite experience (sans front light) at Rs 5,999

 

Amazon Kindle (2014) has been launched in India and this is the first time that the basic entry level Kindle has got a touchscreen. Let'e see how it fares

Amazon already had a Kindle Touch a couple of generations ago, which was discontinued when the Kindle Paperwhite (first gen) launched. The latest Kindle borrows the touch philosophy from the Kindle Touch, but drops the audio jacks for audio books. As...

Amazon Kindle review (2014 eReader)

 

Once upon a time, Amazon's Kindle eReader with a touchscreen would set you back £109. But now, the new 7th generation Kindle is basically the same as the older Kindle Touch yet costs almost half the price.

Aside from the loss of audio functions, you're getting a Kindle Touch for just £59. That's not bad, but don't forget there's no charger in the box.There's more competition these days, though, so if you want a eReader with a lit screen - arguably the...

Amazon Kindle keeps it simple, adds touch, starts at $79 or £59

 

Not satisfied with having one of the best e-readers around, Amazon one-upped its offerings in the category and didn't forget about budget conscious shoppers. Included in the company's new roster of slates is an affordable Kindle, just $79 in the US and...

If you're looking for a no-frills e-reader, however, the new Kindle is both an attractively simple and affordable option. For more information, check back soon for full review when we get our hands on one in October.
