Amazon Kindle eReader

 

First Impressions: Amazon's entry level ereader is cheap and mostly cheerful

The Kobo Touch (£59) is its closest rival and there's very little to separate the two. They have very similar designs and both have plenty of storage. If you want that all important ePub file support, you will probably side with the Touch, but other...

Amazon Kindle (2014) review

 

Amazon turns the page for the basic Kindle model

New touchscreen ; Affordable ; Increased storage

No backlight ; Screen could be better ; Cheap and chunky design

Ratings in depth While the Kindle Voyage is the more exciting of Amazon's latest ereaders, the new Amazon Kindle (2014) shouldn't be overlooked as an affordable way to enter the world of paperless books.

Amazon Kindle review (2014 eReader)

 

Once upon a time, Amazon's Kindle eReader with a touchscreen would set you back £109. But now, the new 7th generation Kindle is basically the same as the older Kindle Touch yet costs almost half the price.

Aside from the loss of audio functions, you're getting a Kindle Touch for just £59. That's not bad, but don't forget there's no charger in the box.There's more competition these days, though, so if you want a eReader with a lit screen - arguably the...

Fancy an ebook reader but don't want to spend a fortune on the top-of-the-range Kindle? Then perhaps the basic Amazon Kindle (2014) is for you. It doesn't come with a built-in light, but is easy to use. We ran it through our lab tests to see how it...

Review: Amazon Kindle (2014)

 

The journey of Amazon's Kindle eBook reader has been one of constant distillation and simplification. For the past seven years, this device has grown by reducing everything from the number of buttons to the type of functionality it offers. The result...

What the Kindle offers is the most affordable way to get on the eBook bandwagon for anyone who is invested in Amazon's library of books. Of course, you can also use it to read PDFs and assorted personal documents by emailing these to your Kindle email...

Amazon Kindle 2014 (review): Everything you want in an e-ink Kindle except a light

 

Amazon's entry-level Kindle is the company's most affordable touchscreen e-reader to date and is only missing one key feature.

The Kindle (2014) is affordable e-ink reader with Wi-Fi that sports a touchscreen and offers access to Amazon's best-in-class e-book ecosystem in a simple, clean-looking package. Capacity has been doubled to 4GB, and the processor is a bit zippier, too.

Battery life is less than Paperwhite and Voyage; no integrated light. All accessories -- such as a charger and case -- cost extra.

For those who can live without an integrated light, the Kindle (2014) offers the full Kindle e-ink e-reading experience with little compromise for a budget price.

Good, better, best. That's what you're looking at when it comes to Amazon's Kindle e-ink e-readers these days, with the e-reader you see here -- the 2014 Kindle -- representing the entry-level or "good" model in the lineup. It retails for $79 in the...

Amazon Kindle (2014)

 

Amazon adds a touch screen to its entry-level Kindle ebook reader, making it a fantastic bargain for $79.

Responsive touch screen. Increased storage capacity. Excellent ebook store.

No front light. No memory card slot or ePub support. Ads cost $20 to remove.

Amazon Kindle (2014)

 

Amazon has offered budget e-readers for years, but its newest Kindle now sports a touch screen, double the on-board storage and pretty zippy performance. Plus, with Amazon's outstanding parental controls--as well as its massive library of e-books--this...
