Kindle Touch features vs. Nook Touch features
March 28, 2012 | 10:51 am

Images That's the subject of an article at the always-excellent A Kindle World Blog, by Andrys Basten.  Here's a bit of it: Now, I've been asked a lot about whether to get a Kindle or a Nook Touch.  I had bought a Nook Color on sight at my B&N (and used it daily for a year) but am not keen on the Nook Simple Touch because its many font faces and size choices displayed much lighter than what I'm used to seeing with the Kindle 3 Keyboard and Touch models.  B&N wouldn't allow me to photograph them side by side so I could...

Kindle Touch software update version 5.04 is available
March 12, 2012 | 8:09 am

Kt v504 From Andrys Basten's A Kindle World Blog.  Full details on how to download it at her site. Kindle Touch Software Update, V5.0.4 is available online, and downloadable at the link, in case the update isn't already on your Kindle Touch and you decide you want it right away. It's apparently been available since Feb. 29 but little was said about it and no one is quite sure what the maintenance updates are about. The only item I found that was fairly certain was that a dictionary does not have to be 'set' again as was needed often when you re-set the Kindle Touch. My Kindle...

Kindle Touch X-ray feature
February 27, 2012 | 8:27 am

Images A Kindle World Blog has a post on this, along with some other interesting stuff, such as Oscar apps: In the meantime, I've been spending more time with the Kindle Touch (photo from physorg.com) because I finally went back to reading the Steve Jobs book by Isaacson, and there are SO MANY characters whose function and place I don't remember the 2nd or 3rd time I run across them, that I've been using the X-Ray feature more and really enjoying it for a book like this.  I took screenshots but will add them later as am rushed right now. But, essentially, for a guy like...

Kindle Touch software updated to 5.03
January 17, 2012 | 9:09 am

Kt v503 If you leave your Kindle on the new software will eventually be pushed to your unit.  Amazon doesn't say anything about what's new with the update, but Andrys Basten, in her excellent A Kindle World Blog, has this to say: Menu response is considerably faster now. Page turns are quicker and smooother in response time, for me, and the 'highlighting' of paragraphs, which sometimes stalled before completing has been smooth and fast so far. Tom, Great to read that accuracy of link touching with footnotes seems much better for you now. Scrolling on Home Screen at...

Nook Simple Touch and Kindle Touch face off at Laptop Magazine
January 6, 2012 | 10:15 am

Images Laptop Magazine has a side-by-side comparison of these two ereaders.  Very useful for someone who is undecided.  Here's a snippet: Design and Ergonomics Side by side, these two gray rectangles display some striking differences in look, shape, and feel. At 6.5 x 5 x 0.5 inches the Nook Simple Touch is closer to square than the Kindle Touch (6.8 x 4.7 x 0.4 inches). We found the charcoal color of the Barnes & Noble eReader more attractive, and the shape gave us the impression that it was smaller and lighter. We also preferred the soft-touch coating that makes the Nook feel rubberized,...

Why I Bought Kindle Touch, by Piotr Kowalczyk
December 2, 2011 | 9:30 am

  First, what I didn’t buy Kindle Touch for: - tech review, - reading books in my mother tongue – Polish. There are a couple of major reasons why I have ordered Kindle Touch from Poland and had it delivered privately as this model is not available for international shipment. 1. To buy and read books in English I’ve tested Kindle ecosystem since I downloaded Kindle app to my iPhone in April 2009. Long enough to recognize my preferences. I like the fact that books are stored in the cloud and I can get access to them from any device which is at hand. I like...

Anandtech reviews the Kindle Fire and Touch 3G
November 29, 2011 | 10:43 am

ImagesAnandtech is the "cream of the crop" in hardware reviews and they set the standard for everyone else. Now they have taken a look at the Kindle Fire and Touch 3G, in two seperate reviews.  They like both units.  The Fire review is long and goes into incredible detail on the technical and hardware end. For the Fire they conclude: I feel like Amazon believes in the Kindle Fire and thus we will see the software get better over time. As with most tablet recommendations lately, if you can wait, doing so would be wise. Don't assume that things will get better, wait...

Images Kindle Touch ereader, announced at the legendary Amazon conference on September 28, was due to ship on November 21, but Amazon apparently speeds up deliveries – which is a fantastic news for anyone who pre-ordered a device.
