A Close Second To The Real Thing

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:-Organized
-Send To Kindle and WiFi are convenient
-Allows a range of document types 

Cons:-Internet causes freezes
-Wi-Fi saps battery after a while

The Bottom Line: I would recommend this to anyone who loves to read. It provides easy functionality and lots of space for many kinds of documents!


As a bibliophile, I really like the idea of being able to bring all of your books with you anywhere you go without the space and muscles required. The Amazon Kindle Touch is really great for this.
While the constant black-and-white of the device can get a little tiresome, it replicates newsprint very well. The e-reader gives you the option to read .doc, .mobi, or .pdf, in landscape or portrait mode, as well as allowing you to change the font size, spacing and style of text as necessary to make you more comfortable. The interface is very simple and hassle-free- to change a page, tap o the left or right (depending if you’re going backwards or forwards,) and the options menus can be opened by tapping the top of the screen.
There are three “experimental” applications on the Kindle which are both rather nice- the Wi-Fi and the music player. If you have Wi-Fi, you can access to the Internet and Amazon Store, where you can purchase media straight from the Kindle. The music player allows you to transfer music to your Kindle from your computer via USB. The player is simplified and provides only the play and pause functionalities, but can be played while you read or surf the Internet. There is also a “text to speech” option which can read your documents to you, with the option of a male or female voice in three different speeds. However, the voices are horribly robotic and not mellifluous in the least.
In terms of organizational convenience, your books and games can be organized into “collections,” which can be named whatever you wish. There is also a really neat and convenient free download available from Kindle for your Mac or PC called “Send To Kindle.” This allows you to send files (.doc, .mobi, .pdf) to your Kindle as well as archive them.
Security-wise, the Kindle has the option of a password-protected lock screen which activates whenever your Kindle is turned on or falls asleep. It allows a numeric passcode up to twelve digits. You can also name your Kindle and add some personal info in case you lose it.
The Kindle has its kinks, though. Somewhere south of often, it will freeze up and have to be rebooted, usually while using the Internet. Leaving the Wi-Fi on while not in use will also sap the battery.
Where this product is concerned, the pros definitely outweight the cons! I would definitely recommend this!
