Amazon have recently released the Kindle Touch to an already adoring public and the hand-on reviews and opinions are already flying in from all corners. Needless to say, patterns are beginning to emerge so as to offer the most comprehensive overall picture for those still on the fence, though it has to be said that the decision really need not be a difficult one in reality.
With regard to the positives, the new Kindle Touch is a lightweight, compact and highly affordable e-reader with one of the best e-ink screens currently going. Of course, coking from Amazon the device also offers access to a truly biblical catalogue of books, newspapers, magazines and audio from the trusted online store, not to mention millions of other online loaners. The Touch also supports MP3 and some text to speech.
As for the negatives, all accessories including a simple AC charger and cover will cost you extra. It will also cost an extra $40 to take the option that comes without ads being displayed, or another $50 if 3G support is required. Nit-picking a little further, the lack of physical page-turn buttons make slightly annoy left-handed readers.
All in all, with a stack of excellent features and a basic price of just $99.99, the Kindle Touch is by far the best e-reader from Amazon to date, serving as a worthy successor to an already highly impressive lineup.
