Amazon Kindle (2019) review: The affordable Kindle ups its game with screen illumination

 

The 2019 Amazon Kindle introduces an illuminated display, just like the Kindle Paperwhite, but for a more affordable price. Is it the Kindle to buy?

Great value ; Illuminated display ; Slim and lightweight design ; Great battery life - lasts for weeks at a time

Kindle Store could be more organised ; Micro-USB and no fast charging ; Design looks the same

There will be some who will want the flush design offered by the Paperwhite, along with the waterproofing and the sharper display, or perhaps the physical buttons and larger display of the Kindle Oasis. For many though, the standard Kindle (2019) will...

Amazon Kindle 2010 review

 

The best-value ebook reader around, to say nothing of its absurd desirability

The finest ebook experience around – and at this price it’s a bargain star rating

Amazon Kindle review

 

Ah, it's arrived then. Variously described as both the ‘iPod of books' and the death of books, the Kindle is online superstore Amazon's ereader system. We say system, not device, for although this gadget is called the Kindle 2, it's part of an...

Amazon Kindle (2019) e-reader review: No longer so basic

 

The new, slightly pricier basic Kindle – is the perfect budget ebook reader

Integrated reading light ; Audible audiobook compatibility ; Low price

No water resistance ; No page turn buttons ; Half the storage of the Paperwhite

If you’re looking for a cheap replacement for your ageing 5th-generation Kindle, or perhaps something even older, just go out and buy one of these. You most certainly will not regret it.

Amazon Kindle 2 review

 

Kindle ties you into Amazon's proprietary format, but the hardware is good and you can buy books from practically anywhere.

Amazon Kindle 2 review

 

The first-generation Amazon Kindle weighed 0.29kg and offered a paperlike E-Ink display that keeps eyestrain at bay (as compared with the backlit displays of mobile phones and other mobile devices). The first Kindle was readable in sunlight; it also...

A definite improvement on the original Amazon Kindle, Amazon Kindle 2 remains marginally short of being the definitive reading experience. At least that leaves Amazon room for improvement on the Kindle 3.

Amazon Kindle Fire 2 landing April 2012

 

The Amazon Kindle Fire hasn't even been given a UK release date yet, and our US gadget-loving brethren don't get their hands on it until tomorrow. But news has emerged from the Far East of plans for a follow-up. Read on to see just what's planned for...

Amazon Kindle 2 Review

 

When Amazon released the original Kindle at the end of 2007, the e-book market was still in its infancy, and there were a lot of mistakes made with the original design. It's oddly angular shell made it unpleasant to look at, and the ridiculously...

The Amazon Kindle 2, and the e-book market in general, certainly has an extremely bright future ahead of it. Amazon have made a good job of correcting the multitude of errors they made with the original model, and the Kindle 2 is an extremely capable...

Amazon Kindle International Edition review

 

A great eReader let down by a hamfisted approach to bringing it to the UK

eInk is ace, Whispernet is lightning fast

US import fees, lack of UK plug, no browser
