The Kindle Touch release has been announced by Amazon for 27th April and is now available for pre-order across the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy. (If you can’t wait that long, there is a great Kindle Touch cover range already at Proporta.)
The Kindle Touch – a touch screen e-reader – will be sold as a wi-fi only option for £109 or with wi-fi and 3G for £169, with no connection fee payable monthly.
The new Kindle has been on sale in the US for around five months and has been highly anticipated on European soil since then, with the Kindle Fire still to be released outside of America.
Competing with touch screen e-readers from Sony and Kobo, the Kindle Touch release is set to be the latest in a long line of runaway successes by Amazon and is expected to continue to dominate this market.
With a large Kindle Touch cover range available from Proporta, there are plenty of reasons to keep a new Kindle protected due to its impressive features with a Kindle case, which include:
- “Experimental” web browser
- 70g weight which is heavier than the Kindle 4
- “X-Ray” feature allowing readers to find passages in a book
- Portrait and landscape modes
- Harry Potter will be available as an e-book series to the new Kindle
With so many new features, there’s more reason than ever to make sure that you protect your e-reader with a Kindle case. There is a large Kindle Touch cover choice available at Proporta right now.
