Amazon New Kindle

  |   by TabletPCReview Staff

The new Amazon Kindle is a 6-inch eInk based eReader that lacks the keyboard found on its predecessor, and is lighter and less expensive as a result.

  • Pros

    • Extremely light and portable
    • Sharp screen, readable in all conditions
    • Fast page turns with no annoying flash
  • Cons

    • No speakers for text to speech or music playback
    • Software keyboard not suitable for note taking
    • No user-replaceable battery or memory expansion slot
    • Screen requires external light for night reading

Quick Take

Kindle Keyboard owners won't find a compelling reason to upgrade, but those in the market for their first Kindle will likely love this new lightweight eReader.
