Today, Amazon.co.uk announced Kindle Touch and Kindle Touch 3G are now available for pre-order to readers across the UK.
Kindle Touch and Kindle Touch 3G are the newest addition to the Kindle family available in the UK and feature everything readers already love about Kindle, plus a new easy-to-use touch screen that makes it easier than ever to turn pages, search, shop, and take notes. Kindle Touch and Kindle Touch 3G both feature the most advanced electronic ink display which reads like real paper, even in bright sunlight, with no glare.
Kindle Touch 3G is another new member of the Kindle family in the UK for readers who want the top-of-the-line e-reader. Kindle Touch 3G offers the same design and features of Kindle Touch – small and light, easy-to-use touch screen, extra-long battery life and audio support – with the unparalleled added convenience of free 3G to download content. Kindle’s free 3G connection means you never have to hunt for or pay for a Wi-Fi hotspot – you simply download and read books anytime, anywhere in over 100 countries around the world. Amazon pays for the 3G connection so there’s no monthly fee or annual contract to download content. It also allows for fast, free updates of your newspaper, magazine and blog subscriptions anytime, anywhere.
