Together with the Amazon Kindle Fire , Amazon also unveiled the touch version of the Kindle, called simply the Amazon Kindle Touch. At an attractive price point (check here for the latest price), the Kindle touch comes with everything the “normal” Kindle E-Reader offers, but adds the benefit of a touchscreen. We say “benefit”, but playing around the with the device shows that the Kindle keyboard is actually not something we ever thought was in the way, quite the opposite. Now, with only one button left, many thing get more complicated to do, for example highlighting text and writing comments.
On the plus side the Kindle touch is now 11% smaller compared to the latest Kindle, and 8% lighter. Both is of course due to the Keyboard not being need anymore. The screen size is the same as with all the other Kindle E-Readers.
All other things have stayed the same or where updated across the whole Kindle range, for example the fact that you can now officially borrow e-books from your local library and will also be able to rent out books to friends.
The Kindle is also one of the few E-Reader with native PDF support, which makes it very convenient when you are in need of a PDF reader for business purposes.
