Amazon Kindle Touch and Touch 3G officially unveiled

Amazon Kindle Touch and Kindle Touch 3G made official at Amazon launch event expected to see the company's first Android tablet, the Amazon Kindle Fire unveiled

Whilst all attention was focussed on the Amazon Kindle Fire release announcement at Amazon’s press conference in New York today, the online retailer officially unveiled the Amazon Kindle Touch.

Building on the success of the company’s existing range of dedicated e-readers the Amazon Kindle Touch is a touchscreen device that does away with the current model’s physical keyboard in favour of a virtual, touch friendly alternative.

Amazon Kindle Touch Features

Scrapping all physical controls the Kindle Touch allows users to move forward and back through pages of their digital books simply by touching the right and left hand sides of the touch sensitive screen respectively.
 

 

Whilst the standard model Kindle Touch will play host to Wi-Fi connectivity options, its sibling the Kindle Touch 3G will, as its name suggests, feature Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity, compatible in more than 100 countries, allowing users to download books on the move.

Amazon Kindle Touch Price and Release date

Despite featuring a touchscreen display the Amazon Kindle Touch is going to sport a very minimalist price tag lining up in the US at just $99 (£63.31). The Kindle Touch 3G will set wannabe users back $149 (£95.29).

A UK price and release date has yet to be announced, stay tuned to T3.com for all the latest.
