Amazon Kindle 2011

 

Lighter, smaller, cheaper - the new Kindle is the best yet. The Amazon ebook monopoly continues…

Great screen ; Faster-than-ever operation ; Slim and light ; Great value ; Improved build quality

New page turning leaves screen residue ; Lacks MP3 playback

The new Kindle is here. And while it's not categorically better in every respect, it's different in a rather brilliant way. It's more portable than its predecessor and the new intermittent refresh eradicates the sluggish page turning of other ereaders....

Smaller, lighter and dumber – welcome to ebooks for the masses

You get what you pay for with this stripped-down Kindle – but Amazon's ebook ecosystem lifts it above the competition

Amazon Kindle (fall 2011) review

 

A lot of people have been waiting a long time for Amazon.com to drop the price of its Kindle to less than $100. Well, that day is here, but Amazon has thrown a little wrench into the equation: it's offering two sub-$100 models, the $79 entry-level...

The entry-level Amazon Kindle 2011 is a compact, lightweight, and ultra-affordable e-book reader with a crisp Pearl e-ink screen and Wi-Fi. It offers access to a massive catalog of books, magazines, and newspapers via Amazon.com's familiar online...

The lack of a touch screen means that input is limited to a cumbersome directional pad and virtual keyboard. There is no support for audio. All accessories--including a cover and an AC charger--cost extra. You need to spend an extra $30 if you don't...

If you don't want to spend the extra $20 to upgrade to the forthcoming touch-screen version, the entry-level 2011 Kindle is a great choice for an ultraportable and superaffordable no-frills e-ink reader.

Amazon Kindle 4 review

 

While Amazon has recently announced its intention to compete in the all-singing all-dancing tablet market with the forthcoming launch of the Fire, it hasn't stopped tinkering with its simple but hugely popular Kindle e-book device.

Faster page turning, lightweight and small, excellent value, good storage

Irritating virtual keyboard input

Another high-quality Kindle device underlines Amazon's ability to compete in the hardware market. The improvements to the Kindle 4 and its low price could well entice many first-time e-book buyers.

Switched On: Between a Nook and a hard placeEngadget's holiday gift guide 2011: e-readersKyobo, Qualcomm make Mirasol color displays a

Relatively inexpensive ; Pocket-sized ; Fast processor

No touchscreen / physical keyboard ; No memory card slot ; Not ideal for one-handed reading

The latest Kindle forgoes bells and whistles such as a touchscreen or physical keyboard, making it one bare-bones device. Still, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better e-reader at this price.
