Engadget Review

Amazon Kindle review (2011)

The latest Kindle forgoes bells and whistles such as a touchscreen or physical keyboard, making it one bare-bones device. Still, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better e-reader at this price.

Pros
  • Relatively inexpensivePocket-sizedFast processor
Cons
  • No touchscreen / physical keyboardNo memory card slotNot ideal for one-handed reading
