5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy upgrade over other Kindles!, November 20, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kindle Touch 3G, Free 3G + Wi-Fi, 6" E Ink Display - includes Special Offers & Sponsored Screensavers (Electronics)
Length:: 9:09 Mins

Please watch my video review here. Thanks for watching and I hope it helps.

General observations:

- Controlling/manipulating things on the screen is so much easier with the touch screen-it's a lot more intuitive!

- Athough I don't show it in the video, you can swipe instead of tap to turn pages. You may also use your left hand to page forward by tapping slightly more in from the left edge. It works quite well.

- Looking up a word is as easy as pressing on that word. No more fumbling with a 5-way controller. You can additionally highlight blocks of text quite easily by just swiping over it.

- Kindle Touch also has the new X-Ray feature which is really neat. It can be interesting to see a summary listing of facts from a given book about a person mentioned for instance. The Kindle Keyboard does not include this feature.

What if there is more than one family member with a Kindle. Let's say my wife and I want to buy and read the same book at the same - do we each have to pay...?

Are the fonts and type size changeable? Can you view documents on it? I saw a review that said he had uploaded pics, what does that look like?

Thanks for all the info. I was ready to purchase the Kindle keyboard since a friend has one and loves it, but after watching your review I can see that the Kindle Touch is what I really need.

On my old pandigital, the screen broke by me dropping it; I don't think the screen would eventually break if you were to use a plastic pen from a ds; or known as the dsi.

Will power adapters from previous generation Kindles work with the Kindle Touch?

Thank you very much for such an informative review. I had gone to a "box store" to try and play with the Touch but they only had out the non-touch and the Fire, which was disappointing. I was hesitant to order the Touch without being able to play with it first and had decided on the most basic Kindle. But after watching your fantastic review, I'm going to take the plunge and upgrade from my 2nd generation Kindle to the Touch. Again, many thanks! I wish all reviews were as well done as yours.
