More information at: ZDNet, 8/2010 Amazon Kindle DX (graphite, global 3G wireless) Among leading e-book readers, a 6in. screen — which approximates the size of a paperback book — is standard: it's what you'll find on the Amazon Kindle, the Barnes & Noble Nook (in the US) and at least one version of the Sony Reader. But for those who prefer the more spacious pages of a magazine or newspaper, that size can be a bit cramped. With that in mind, Amazon released the Kindle DX in the summer of 2009, supersizing the Kindle experience with a 9.7in. E-ink screen. … to review

Amazon Kindle Touch 11/2011 - Is the aptly named Kindle Touch as close to a digital book as it gets, or is it just a black and white tablet try-hard?

Amazon Kindle (2011 edition) ebook reader Computer act!ve 11/2011 - The original Kindle was superb, but came at a high-ish price once the import fees had been paid for shipping from Amazon in the States. The latest Kindle comes in at less than half that price, so is it still as good?

Amazon Kindle review (late 2011, no keyboard) Wired 11/2011 - From both a design and price point of view, it seems the new Kindle from Amazon undercuts it keyboard toting older brother. But is this 6-inch keyboardless version really any better?

Hands-on: the new, keyboard-free Kindle gets out of the way of the book Ars Technica 11/2011 - Of all of Amazon's recent announcements the Fire got all the headlines, but the cornerstone of the online retailer's world domination plans is undoubtedly the new, cheaper, lighter Kindle.

Amazon Kindle 4 T3 11/2011 - Amazon have improved what was already arguably the best e-Reader in town, and although it only costs the equivalent of around £50 in the US, there's no denying that £89 for the fourth generation Kindle is still cheap.

Amazon Kindle 4 Register Hardware 10/2011 - The Kindle 4 is a refreshingly affordable e-reader with the ease of use of any dearer Kindle model. What sacrifices have been made to keep the cost down?

Hands-On: Amazon's Fourth-Gen Kindle Refresh Tom's Hardware 10/2011 - Amazon have brought out a new take on the Kindle but is it an improvement or just more of the same?

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 12/2013 - Despite being locked to Amazon's store, the Kindle is the best e-reader on the market since its inception, and that doesn't look set to change with the new Paperwhite model. But is its price of over £100 starting to feel a bit too much?

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 10/2013 - Compared to the original Kindle Paperwhite, the new model doesn't look like too much of a step forward, but do these subtle improvements result in a significantly better device overall?

Amazon Kindle (fifth generation) PC Pro 10/2012 - As if last year's Kindle wasn't enough of a bargain, the latest model is £20 cheaper still, making it harder and harder to find an excuse not to choose it over the competition. PC Pro check to see if there are any chinks in its armour.

Amazon Kindle 5 (2012) PC Advisor 10/2012 - Amazon's Kindles are the most popular ebook readers around at the moment and hopefully the new and improved basic model will keep up the good reputation.

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite review (2013): a superb, if pricey, ereader PC Advisor 10/2013 - The original Kindle Paperwhite was a truly fantastic reader, so Amazon has chosen not to tamper too much with a winning formula and the improvements to its successor are scarce. PC Advisor check if it's worth the upgrade.

Amazon Kindle Touch Stuff TV 5/2012 - Amazon's Kindles have long had a hold on the e-reader market, but its new finger-friendly model is a departure from its buttoned-up brothers. Is it a touch of class?

Amazon Kindle Touch TechRadar UK 4/2012 - Amazon have updated their eBook readers and now there's Kindle Touch, which is completely touch controlled. How well does it perform?

Amazon Kindle 3 - Wi-Fi version 9/2010 - Amazon is now offering the third version of its e-book reader, promising a smaller, lighter model with 50% better contrast. The screen measurement stays the same however, at 6" (15.2cm) diagonally. A lot of small details have been finely tuned too, which we’ll be looking at in more depth in our review. ...

Amazon Kindle Touch PC Advisor 11/2011 - In the US, Amazon's Kindle Touch is their e-reader flagship - but with no UK release planned, it has to be shipped from the States!

Yes, that's a button! The Kindle Touch reviewed Ars Technica 11/2011 - The new Kindle Touch does away with the hardware keyboard and the buttons of previous models save one. It's dearer than the basic version, but it also offers a bit more. Enough to justify the price?

Amazon Kindle (new) The Gadget Show 10/2010 - The latest iteration of Amazon's eBook reader promises better contrast, faster page-turning as well as boasting a new svelte body that's 21 per cent thinner (and therefore lighter) as well as an increased 4GB internal memory.

Amazon Kindle DX Global Wireless Edition ZDNet 3/2010 - Amazon's Kindle DX Global Wireless Edition is the largest e-book reader we've seen to date. It benefits from an HSDPA connection for purchasing books, magazines and newspapers, so there's no need to connect it to your PC to populate it with content. But it's also somewhat hamstrung for the UK market, so is it still worth considering?

Amazon Kindle DX Register Hardware 2/2010 - It took Amazon's Kindle 2 a good while to escape from Uncle Sam's backyard but less than three months more for the international version of the Kindle DX to arrive. Before we even laid hands on the DX we knew it was both bigger and more expensive, but is it any better?
