I still slightly prefer reading Kindle books on an iPad to a Kindle device; however, that may change when we finally see the colour, backlit Kindle Fire tablet in Europe. For now, what we do have is the new Kindle Touch. Its daytime-readable screen is,...

Amazon's Kindle Touch might have been superceded several weeks ago, but that doesn't mean the model is out of date. If you need a solid e-reader to last you the next five years, and you see one of these babies on eBay cheap, you have our support to buy...

Initially, I had misgivings about Amazon's Kindle e-readers due to format constraints, but having used the workarounds available to good effect, this no longer remains a concern. The Kindle Touch is just the right size and its touchscreen makes for...

Amazon's touchscreen ebook reader, the Kindle Touch 3G ( £169 inc. VAT ), has finally landed. Ever since the e-tailer unleashed the original Kindle back in 2007, we've all been waiting for a touchscreen variant to arrive. The long wait, according to its...

This is the best Kindle so far for students, thanks to its note-taking abilities and touch controls. If you are already a Kindle owner, you won’t want to be paying out, but if you’re on the lookout for an ereader, this is definitely the one to...

There's no doubt that the Kindle Touch 3G is a great device. It's not a question of whether we recommend it or not – we do – but whether it's the right Kindle model for you. For academic use, we recommend the Kindle Touch over its £89 sibling. It's so...

Kindle Touch is the latest eReader from Amazon. As the name suggests, it's the first to arrive in the UK equipped with a touchscreen. But does this new feature improve the already excellent Kindle and are touchscreens best left to tablets? Let's find...

The Amazon Kindle Touch needs little in the way of introduction. This e-ink device is one of the best selling e-readers in the world, and is a refinement of Amazon's successful line of Kindle devices. Amazon offers the same device in two prices: $99...

It’s more expensive than the Kindle Keyboard 3G, but performance is slicker, with much faster response times and page turns. Ask us to choose between the Wi-Fi Touch and the non-touch model, however, and we’d go for the £20-cheaper one every...

With the original Kindle on sale at £89, the extra 30 quid seems a high price to pay for a touchscreen. For another £20, the Sony Reader PRS-T1 has a touchscreen and browser, plays music and all the rest, but it's lighter and a little more intuitive...

Nothing can stop the Kindle from being brilliant. If you need 3G, then the Touch is the only option for you - aside from the Kindle Keyboard. If audiobook and text-to-speech support is something you want, then this is the reader to buy. For everyone...

Let's get one thing straight: it's hard to beat paper. Traditional books are sublimely easy on the eye, feel good in the hand and encourage a more intimate relationship. After all, with a book held in your hands you can tell by touch alone how far...

The Amazon Kindle Touch is a good addition to the Kindle line up. Many of the touch elements make getting around easier, though accidental screen presses may be an issue for some people. Pros: Small, light and very recognisably a Kindle, the addition of...
