Amazon brings touchscreen technology to this version of the Kindle. It's £20 more than the basic non-touch version, and also a little heavier and thicker. Which version should you go for? Does the 6-inch touchscreen impress? What other features does it have? We sent it to our lab for a full test to find out.

HiThe 3G kindle is still available Amazon with a keyboard if you can't get along with the touchscreen.

Troubles with Touching - an ageing problem?
I bought a Kindle Touch in an emergency situation, while away from home looking after a sick relative and with my Kindle Keyboard 3 3G - with which I'd been very happy - having suddenly died on me, so that I'd been left without any reading matter and was going frantic.I'd liked the 3G keyboard and wanted an identical replacement, but was told they'd been discontinued and so took a Touch, the only thing Currys had in stock in the town where I was.I am finding the Touch VERY difficult to use. It doesn't do what I want at all, or rather seldom. I seem to use the wrong touch "codes" with it, so that instead of turning to the next page it will suddenly switch over completely to something else - e.g to an advertising panel, or my book archive list. I then can't get back either to the current book text or - even more maddeningly - to the Kindle Touch User Guide, though that's supposed to be available somewhere. I just need to give up trying to read. Quite frankly, the thing is driving me mad and I am on the verge of taking it back to Currys and complaining, though I'm sure they will say there is nothing wrong with it. Funnily enough, I have had similar problems with touchscreen mobile phones too and the trouble may well be that I am elderly and haven't the fine control over finger movements, wrist pressure etc that a younger person would have, but I so badly miss my keyboard 3G. I very much wish I had been forewarned about how different this "improvement" would be.
