Amazon Kindle Touch

We haven't had a chance to fully test this product yet, but we've assembled this helpful overview of relevant information on it.

Amazon’s popular Kindle spawned a number of spin-offs including the Kindle Touch. The Touch is about the same size as the original Kindle weighing a little more at 7.5 ounces with a slightly bigger body at 6.8-inches long and 4.7-inches wide versus the normal Kindle’s 6.5-inch by 4.5-inch body. Both devices use E-ink Pearl in their displays. However, there are some key differences between the Touch and the regular Kindle. For one, the Touch has a multi-touch screen that is used to control the content, and forgoes the page buttons that the Kindle uses. Touches also come with more memory at 4 GBs over the 2 GBs that the Kindle comes with. The battery life is rated to last for about two months with the wireless functionality turned off. The Touch comes in two versions the Wi-Fi-only version and the 3G -ready version.

– 6″ e-ink pearl display
