    APP OF THE DAY: Kindle for Android review (Android)

    By 11 March 2013

    There's a lot of talk of ecosystems with modern smartphones and the war raging around where you buy your content and where you consume it. In an ideal world you're free to move your content around and do with it what you want: it is, after all, your content....

    Amazon Kindle Fire HD review

    By 1 November 2012

    The Kindle Fire HD brings to the UK something missing from Amazon's armoury: a tablet. With the Kindle E Ink reader now firmly lodged in the hands, and minds, of many, the most important thing about this particular tablet might not be the operating system...

    Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (2012) review

    By 12 October 2012

    The biggest issue with the Amazon Kindle and its E-Ink technology is that while it's fantastic for reading on the beach, in broad daylight, or lasting for what seems an eternity on a single charge, try to read it in bed and you'll struggle without some...

    Kindle 6-inch (2012) review

    By 5 October 2012

    No one could really accuse the Kindle of ever having been massively over-priced. For one, there has always been a good range of models, giving users the choice about what they spend and what options they get. But recently, Amazon has made the entry-level...

    Amazon Kindle for Mac adds gesture support, we flick through some books

    By 11 September 2012

    Amazon Kindle for Mac has added gesture controls for Lion and Mountain Lion users, so Pocket-lint fired up the app to see whether it makes a difference. The new app hasn't really changed that much although it is also worth noting that if you've got a...

    Amazon Kindle Touch 3G review

    By 24 April 2012

    It wasn't all that long ago that we reviewed the new Kindle. As you might imagine, we loved it. This is, after all, the best known and best designed ebook reader on the market. It's simple, cheap, and pretty much single-purpose. What it does, it does...

    Amazon Kindle Fire review

    By 18 November 2011

    Is it a jumped-up e-reader, a cut-price iPad or nothing more than a portable shop window for Amazon’s endless shelves? The Kindle Fire blunders into the tablet wars with something to annoy everyone: an LCD screen to irritate E Ink fans; a GPS-less,...

    Amazon Kindle (2011) review

    By 30 September 2011

    With all the fuss over the launch of the Kindle Fire tablet, it would have been easy to overlook the new Amazon product that Jeff Bezos expects to sell "many millions" - the cheapest Kindle ever, slightly confusingly also called the Kindle. (The Kindle...

    My Own Story Time Pad: LeapFrog’s Kindle for kids

    By 29 June 2011

    LeapFrog has created a new electronic reading device for 2 to 4 year olds that hopes to let them think you’ve been kind enough to give them a Kindle. Designed to look like the ebook reader from Amazon, it’s sadly not as tech savy, but still very cool...

    APP OF THE DAY: Amazon Kindle (iPad)

    By 8 November 2010

    The iPad has been around for long enough now to give both iBooks and the Amazon Kindle app a thorough testing. We felt that we need to read a few novels, and spend some serious hands on time with each platform to gauge a proper feel of the behaviour of...

    Amazon Kindle Keyboard 3G review

    By 4 October 2010

    The new Amazon Kindle Keyboard 3G has landed, following up where the Kindle Keyboard left off. We criticised the Kindle Keyboard on various fronts: the fact that it was restricted to Amazon’s material when it came to purchasing ebooks was the biggest...

    Amazon Kindle DX ebook review

    By 24 June 2009

    According to Amazon, Kindle users buy 2.6 times as many books as other customers - and even purchase the same number of printed books that they did before. So why did one attendee of Book Expo America last month confess to wanting to punch an owner of...
