For the third-generation Kindle, Amazon addressed several flaws that had marred earlier models. The vastly improved Amazon Kindle 3 has less heft, faster page turns, a better button design, and a higher-contrast screen than its predecessors. We also like the new 6-inch E-Ink Pearl display, with its faster screen refresh rates. One shortcoming of the e-reader is its weak handling of PDFs; but for the most part, the Kindle 3 is a solid choice. Choices include a Wi-Fi-only model and a combined Wi-Fi and 3G model.
Available colors: white and graphite
