The best Kindle around since it reads along - the text to speech feature is great and is only on this particular model...

Great product for it's value!
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!Read full review

One of the best e-readers EVER
Amazon, please take a clue from you past and make another updated version of this e-reader with a SPEAKER. The only thing missing from your new Voyage and Paperwhite is a speaker!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE! If they had a speaker and you could listen to the text it would the the ULTIMATE E-Reader!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This one, even though it's a past generation is still working perfectly. It was well made, the text was crisp. Only was missing a light which was offered built in on the cover, so that is OK. If this e-reader had been back lit and the voice in the text to speech up to date with the voice on the new fire readers I would give this the award of BEST E-READER ON THE PLANET!!!!!!!!!!!!! The battery life is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You did something RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go back and do it again but tweak it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A lot of us are hooked on text to speech!Read full review

fine product with the advantage of 3G for wifi-less spots, which are numerous when I travel. Battery is OK, less when connected.

Fast and easy to use. A fantastic upgrade from my Kindle Keyboard.
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.Read full review
