This is a great device for someone who is looking for near book reading experience with combination with Wi-Fi capabilities. The experimental browser seems to do a nice job, with all the sites i tried were displayed properly. Remember, that's still all are in black&white display, but this what's making mostly why battery's life is so long. I hadn't used a 3G connectivity option yet, but the fact is that it's unlocked makes it more comfortable to use in places where Wi-Fi isn't available and you make connect to the internet using your cellular provider carrier. The device have internal 4GB free space and additional 4 or 5GB on the amazon cloud service (whispernet or something) . It took a little time to understand proper usage of the device, that's why it's strongly recommended to read it's manual before starting the use of the device. Many answers to questions cam be found there. For an example, how to deliver books or reading files to the device and making them visible for usage (you have to send the files to your unique email@example.com e-mail, log on to your amazon account BEFORE that and define legible e-mail accounts that can send files to your Kindle Touch device, you can't just deliver them by USB connection to the PC, it won't work that way). To be able to enjoy MP3 player or audiobooks, you have to connect via USB and deliver mp3 files or audiobooks files to prover directories ONLY (there is a specific directory for each, you can find out more by reading the manual). So, it's still isn't a tablet, it weights much less and it's size smaller too, but for reading the books, E-Ink technology is the best and for sure it worth the money!
I bought my kindle keyboard originally because the Kindle Touch was yet to be released and its arrival in Australia was still some time off. After waiting some time for the touch's Australian release, I could wait no longer and found one with 3G for sale on eBay for about half the cost the wifi only version was to be sold for here. It has been well worth the wait.
The Kindle Touch is very easy to navigate and its controls are intuitive. The Touch is lighter and smaller than the Keyboard and I rather like it's Graphite finish. It looks as good as it functions.
The battery lasts for sometime. I think the advertising states the battery will last up to a month with average use of 30 mins or so a day. This is easily the case and it lasts even longer if Wifi is turned off. I would rarely sit down with it to read for only 30 mins at a time and still the battery keeps going.
I have found little to dislike about the Kindle Touch. In fact the only dislike I have come up with is that the genuine Kindle lighted covers are very limited in colours. Just a few quite drab covers, I chose the black as it's a good default colour and the best of a bad bunch of colours. The covers themselves are quite expensive. I also found one of these on eBay for about half the cost including postage. There are other lighted covers out there but none with the light built in, running off the kindle's own battery so only one thing to charge when needed. The original cover design is as sleek as the Touch itself without the extra battery pack or chunky clip on light. Brighter colours would be an improvement though.
If you're after an iPad like tablet the has a colour screen and is able to show movies and has it's own "apps" then the new Kindle Fire may be more your thing but I already have something similar and didn't see the point in buy another. However, if you're after a simple, easy to use, dedicated Ebook reader, then the Kindle Touch could be just the thing for you. I love mine.
Once I read all the info. and got it up and running I think the price is right and it works well for me. I love that I can change the print size for my reading pleaure. However,No where did I find out how to get to the sub menus until I held a book title down too long. I would have appreciated information on how to navigate a little better. Still a good buy for the money once you learn how to get around.
Great value, runs over a month between battery charges, easy to read, has the larger memory (4GB)and has wireless connection. I take it with to exercise to read while on the stair stepper & the time flies by. Can adjust font size for ease of reading. Has many features the paperwhite model doesn't for much less money.
My view of the Kindle Touch is that it's an excellent product. My beef is the listing as 3G (Unlocked)<<< what ever unlocked means. The Kindle has a built in 3G ATT connection usable anywhere in the USA. When I updated the Kindle Touch to OS 5.3.2, I expected the item to have WIFI and 3G connection.
When I reviewed the settings after the upgrade, The data on the About Device usually tells me the updated version 5l3l2 BUT the Network Capabilities showed WIFI only. I would not have noticed except compared to my personal Kindle Touch 5.3.2 showed network capability as WIFI & 3G.
So the unlocked device was damaged goods as far as I am concerned. I have not read anywhere where the unlocked Kindle Touch operating system was a desirable item.
The Kindle Touch was just fine for my sister who lives in Canada where the 3G was not a desired access.
